Samsung Galaxy S5 is more difficult to repair than its predecessor

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

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
