The Pixel 2 XL earns a 6 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
Many components are modular and can be replaced once the display assembly is removed.
All of the screws are common Phillips #00 screws, and there are only 9 of them.
The display is still thin and poorly supported, especially around the grilles, but foam adhesive makes the opening process easier.
The battery's loss of pull-tab adhesive, plus tightly walled-in placement, makes it much harder to remove.
The stubborn midframe and tight-fitting display cable covers make for more labor-intensive repairs.
