LG Watch Urbane gets iFixit teardown, relatively easy repair

The iFixit team has put LG’s top-of-the-line Android Wear smartwatch – the LG Watch Urbane – squarely in its sights for a teardown treatment. Smartwatches are generally more prone to issues and breaks than smartphones, given the watches’ proximity to bodily movement. The teardown would most likely show if the LG Watch Urbane would at least be easy to repair, if needed.

Nexus 6 iFixit verdict: easy to teardown, lots of screws

After the Nexus 6, which was hard to come by in the market, had some time to percolate in the public, iFixit takes it for its usual teardown tour. While the Nexus 9 was a rather disappointing misadventure, scoring a weak 3 out of 7 on the iFixit scale, there is no immediate reason to expect the same from this Motorola product. Fortunately, the Nexus 6 does not disappoint and provides an almost smooth ride, except for a few minor bumps on the road.

Nexus 9 gets an iFixit teardown: handle with care

The Nexus 9 is now available for our hands to hold and, of course, that means that it's also available for a good old-fashioned iFixit-style teardown. While Google's Nexus devices are quite well known for their purity and openness, that apparently only applies to the software. On the hardware side, the Nexus 9 proved to be a rather tough customer, earning it one of the lowest repairability scores we've seen on an Android device.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha gets the iFixit teardown treatment

So we’ve been a bit disappointed with the specs of Samsung’s new “premium feel” device, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha – a device which marks the first time the Korean gadget giant has been willing to ditch plastic for a more “fruity” metal design. Maybe Samsung was doing an “anything you can do, I can do too” with Apple, hence a spec line that doesn’t really stack up to flagship level. Popular teardown specialists iFixit give the new metal-bound phone the full treatment.
