We usually get to see the insides of the phones once they have been launched into the market and are being used. This might explain why we were a bit surprised when landed with a torn up version of the LG G3 which has not even been launched as yet. The team at UBreakIfix got their hand on the Korean version of the G3 and it has received a ruthless treatment. This ‘rip apart’ procedure has given away a slight weakness of the phone; it can easily break open since there are only 14 screws which are holding the phone parts together. But on the other side, it also means that the phone wont take long enough to get repaired. The insides have revealed a different internal architecture as compared to the predecessor. There major difference is the large board which acts as a central hub since all components have been attached to this single main board as opposed to having multiple separate panels (which was the case in G2). This simpler design will aid in the fixing of the phone which is not going to be so complicated.
