iFixit tears down Samsung Galaxy S5 to reveal the interior of the phone.

For those who are curious about what Samsung Galaxy S5 looks like from the inside: the latest report by iFixit mentions this information. As is the case with most of the Samsung Galaxy devices, the battery can be replaced simply by way of removing the back panel of the phone.

The phone’s display is also removed, as shown by iFixit revealing that one can easily replace it in case it gets damaged. In order to access the internals, the display is the first thing that ought to be removed. From the previous scores that iFixit allotted to Samsung’s flagship phones, 8/10, iFixit has gone back to giving the Samsung Galaxy S5 a score of 5/10 on its repairability.

Thus iFixit shows that an easily expandable phone in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is not always one that can be conveniently repaired. The GS5 also contains features such as a Synaptics fingerprint reader as well as a Maxim heart rate sensor chip.Check out the video below: Source: iFixit
