Default How many People dig into their devices

To let everyone know I have refurbbed one device a Samsung Behold (big beans I know right?) but recently I completely tore apart my HTC Amaze 4G for unsightly crust that built up under the secondary camera (shame on you HTC) but I am wondering since there is a huge video base on youtube for replacing this or that, even modding a phone for extra battery capacity, how many of you out there are willing to pull apart you 500.00 dollar U.S. phone?

the curious cat even got me on my new Galaxy S3. (I so just wanted to see it's innards) why would Samsung go and put Philips screws on a premium device?

Am I sick'o'?

I've taken apart my Captivate to fix the speaker, and might have to do it again soon. I'll be taking apart my brothers One-X to replace the glass soon.

I wouldn't open a phone up just to look at it though.

I took apart my old Incredible and it was interesting, i know i love tinkering with computers so i assumed phones would house the same amount of interest for me
