Yes, serviceability has definitely lost ground to compact design over the years. There are trade offs everywhere and either we carry around a brick with a removable back panel for component repair/replacement access, or have the smartphone design we do today where it's practically an extension of our body. I'm for the latter.
I do love iFixit teardowns though, daring to go where no one is intended to.
I salute you, iFixit!
