    The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gets the iFixit teardown treatment and gets a 3/10 repairability score
    iFixit has published their teardown of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and gave it the same repairability score as the Galaxy S7.

    Pros and cons of the teardown include. . .
    - Many components are modular and can be replaced independently.
    - Unlike the S6 Edge, the battery can be removed without first ousting the motherboard—but tough adhesive and a glued-on rear panel make replacement more difficult than necessary.
    - The display needs to be removed (and likely destroyed) if you want to replace the USB port.
    - Front and back glass make for double the crackability, and strong adhesive on the rear glass makes it very difficult to gain entry into the device.
    - Replacing the glass without destroying the display is probably impossible.
