OnePlus 2 gets the teardown treatment from iFixit

OnePlus 2 Teardown
OnePlus’ 2016 Flagship Killer has arrived on the test benches of the iFixit team who has, as expected, torn it down and assessed it for repairability.

The phone scores a reasonable 7 out of 10 for repairability, a step up from the 5 out of 10 the original OnePlus handset received from iFixt when it first launched.

The improved score is due to the use of a single (non-proprietary) type of screw (Phillips #000) throughout the handset as well as the USB-C port being a simple flex cable that should be inexpensive to repair. The battery is also fairly easily removed though it does still require the phone to be stripped down.

There was one slight issue which dropped the repairability score, the LCD and digitiser glass on the screen are one fused unit and have to be replaced as a single unit.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
