OnePlus 2 gets the teardown treatment, experts offer decent repairabilityscore


The OnePlus 2 is creating big waves in the global market for obvious reasons. The smartphone has now undergone a teardown thanks to the folks over at iFixit who specialize in this field.

The team has offered the handset a repairability score of 7 out of 10, which isn’t the best score out there, but not the worst either. The handset scored decent points for easy removal of the back panel as well as protective covering for the internal circuitry.

One of the sole reasons why the handset didn’t score higher was the company’s idea to fuse the display and the digitizer together, which makes it quite hard to repair or remove them.

Everything else on the handset appears to be functioning just fine, so there are no complaints in that area. While something like a teardown is not meant for everybody, it gives users a very good idea of how hard it could be to repair the device, should they take that upon themselves. We don’t endorse prying open your phones without expert supervision, so please don’t try it out for fun.
