Nexus 10 gets its own teardown treatment

This weekend we showed you the usual iFixit teardown of the LG Nexus 4 smartphone, and now we have the Nexus 10 getting the same teardown. This time around however the teardown isn't by iFixit and instead comes from the folks at PowerbookMedic. Just like most teardowns we get a nice breakdown and look at the internals that make these devices tick.

So what does this reveal about the Samsung made Nexus 10 tablet? It's just as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside. Everything is neatly and carefully mashed together inside a sleek slate, and they managed to fit that crazy high resolution display, large battery, and new Exynos 5250 dual-core processor all under the hood with ease.

While Powerbookmedic doesn't have the wide array of teardowns that iFixit does to compare the actual end result, they were quick to mention just how extremely easy Google (or Samsung) made this tablet to take apart. This is a good thing because it also means the average consumer can repair any issues with ease -- should you have the guts to take a screwdriver to your own tablet.

Using nothing more than average screws and a suction cup the rear came off quickly, then inside it was one of the cleanest and simplest designs they've worked with. Comparing it to the highly complex and difficult to work with iPad. The battery connector was rubber instead of plastic so it snapped off with ease, and users won't have to worry about breaking the little tip. While we won't get into specifics on each part (they do that themselves) in the end it scores high for repairability and ease of use, with almost everything just needing a few screws to be removed. We know you all enjoy checking out these photos so head to the source link to check more out.

    Why does nexus 7 get a quad core and this gets a dual core? Price? Power consumption? My motto is ‘go big or go home’ so if this had a quad core, I’d be all over it.
