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.

HTC One (M8) iFixit teardown gives a look at the insides

As we often see following major device announcements, the iFixit crew comes in with a teardown. Having said that, the latest has been shared, and yes, this one is giving everyone a look at the insides of the newly announced HTC One (M8). Or maybe more accurate for the overall picture here, the iFixit crew is offering a look at how to properly take the HTC One (M8) apart.

Nexus 5 teardown reveals plastic clips, little glue and standard screws

The Nexus 5 has been the center of attention lately. Thankfully, we are on the side of official chatter as opposed to the rumors and as such, the folks at iFixit have recently shared their Nexus 5 teardown. This time around we are seeing a 15-step process that ultimately resulted in a repairability score of 8 out of 10. Perhaps more important, this teardown also confirmed some earlier rumors.
