One of the most important smartphones of 2020, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G , has been disassembled by the iFixit technicians who have assessed its repairability: we anticipate that although difficult, adjusting the S20 Ultra is not impossible.
One thing is for sure, taking apart the Galaxy S20 Ultra is no joke. This is confirmed by the iFixit geeks who have dissected the latest jewel from Samsung and shown how difficult it is to repair. However, helped by a massive dose of patience, the flagship of the South Korean giant can be adjusted, thanks to the fact that many components are modular and independently replaceable.
As you can imagine, the iFixit technicians have come to the conclusion that any repair concerning the Galaxy S20 Ultra presupposes an initial and meticulous disruption of the delicate glass rear panel . However, the team gives us good news: the rear of the’S20 can be removed without tearing the cables.
Unfortunately, this is the only positive aspect of disassembling the Galaxy S20 Ultra and, in the end, iFixit assigns a very low degree of repairability and equivalent to 3 out of 10 . In fact, the negative aspects are manifold and mainly concern the battery – difficult to replace due to the glue – and repairs in general – which always presuppose the disassembly of the fragile rear panel.
This means that if you want to try your hand at disassembling the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, you have to take into account that you have a lot of courage and, above all, patience.
