The Samsung Galaxy Note8 earns a 4 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
Many components, including all of those that experience wear, are modular and can be replaced independently.
The only screws in this phone are standard Phillips screws.
The battery can be replaced, but tough adhesive and a glued-on rear panel make it unnecessarily difficult.
All repairs require removing the glass rear panel, which is challenging due to the large amount of adhesive.
Replacing the display requires removing the glass rear panel and the display, both of which are fragile and secured with strong adhesive.
