OnePlus One teardown comes courtesy of iFixit

The latest iFixit smartphone teardown has been shared. The OnePlus One was the subject this time around and we are seeing a device that was given a repairability score of 5 out of 10 and described as having a "fairly modular" design. The modular design is said to "allow for less expensive replacement parts" however going back to that 5 (out of 10) score and it doesn't look like many will be doing home repairs.

Google’s Project Tango torn apart by iFixit

Google's Project Tango has become the subject of the latest iFixit teardown. We like seeing these teardowns as they generally offer a view that most users will never get to see -- the inner guts. But in the case of Project Tango that is especially true as this is a prototype device. Or in other words, a device many will never see in the wild at all.

Gear Fit gets torn apart, reveals internals and curved battery

Tearing open a smartphone or tablet seems so easy, now that iFixit has ripped open the Gear Fit from Samsung. The tiny wearable got the teardown treatment, where we find it empty, and void of parts to make it work like a smart wearable should. No, wait, they’re just attached to the back of the screen.

Samsung Galaxy S5 gets opened up by iFixit

The folks at iFixit are back with another device teardown. This latest is for the Samsung Galaxy S5, a device we are currently taking a look at ourselves. Except in our case, we certainly aren't going to be cracking it open. That last thought rings especially true after seeing the assigned repairability score -- a 5 out of 10.

Samsung Gear 2 iFixit teardown shows some potential for repair

We've seen a few device teardowns from iFixit in recent weeks. They provided a look inside the HTC One (M8) back in late-March, and then the Amazon Fire TV teardown arrived earlier this month. The latest, which is for the Samsung Gear 2 has recently been shared. We aren't sure how many people would be wiling to do any home repair on this particular wearable, but it seems this smartwatch is fairly easy to take apart.

Fire TV iFixit teardown reveals massive heatsink

The Amazon Fire TV was announced earlier this week and the folks at iFixit have returned with another teardown. They gave the set-top box a score of 6 out of 10 in terms of repairability, however we suspect there will not be many attempting to fix this $99 media and game player by themselves. Instead these teardowns offer a look that most will likely never see otherwise. They sometimes also reveal some interesting little details.
