If you are one of the millions of fans of Samsung’s Galaxy series and especially the S5, read this before you set out to buy the phone. iFixit, the tear down expert has got it’s hands on the new flagship mobile from Samsung, and came out with some alarming results.
Before Samsung Galaxy S5, iFixit released the tear down videos of Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Gear 2. Both of the devices scored a respectable 8 on the scale of 10.
Samsung Galaxy S5, seems in no mood to enter the tear down race. Samsung Galaxy S5 has scored merely 5 out of 10 on iFixit’s scale. According to the tear down expert the results were poor because of the screen and not the waterproof and dust proof feature. For any repairing of the phone, the screen is to be taken out for the S5, which is thickly glued to the base. This makes the repairing faster but at the same time makes it complicated to get to the bare wires. The only simple component to replace is the battery, which can be replaced by taking out the back cover.
The waterproof and dust-proof features don’t seem to hamper the ratings too much. This may not bother you much, as probably you will not be getting your hands dirty on a $800 (Rs.52000) phone and would prefer the service center near by.
