Video: HTC One (M8) gets broken down to its components, given a low repairability score
The HTC One (M8) was unveiled just yesterday, but since the device can already be purchased, the good folk at iFixit decided to tear the phone apart and give us a look at its internals. Last year’s HTC One was extremely hard to disassemble, so it’s not too surprising that the iFixit techs has a few issues with the new One as well. Getting inside the metal chassis is a little easier this time around, but HTC’s glue-happy assembly process makes it nearly impossible to get at any of the handset’s components without ready access to heating tools and careful prying.
iFixit has given the all new HTC One (M8) a repairability score of 2 – a slight improvement over last year’s score of 1. If you happen to break your new device, we don’t really recommend fixing it on your own. And don’t forget, HTC One (M8) comes with HTC Advantage which means HTC will fix the screen on your phone for free if you break or crack it within the first six month.
