  152. 152. v Score breakdown: iphone 6+ ‣ We have slain the giant. The iPhone 6 Plus earned a respectable seven out of ten, an improvement over the iPhone 5s. Here's why: ‣ Continuing the trend from the iPhone 5 series, the display assembly comes out of the phone first, simplifying screen repairs. ‣ The battery is straightforward to access. Removing it requires a proprietary pentalobe screwdriver and knowledge of the adhesive removal technique, but is not difficult. ‣ The fingerprint sensor cable has been re-routed, fixing a significant repairability issue with the iPhone 5s and making the phone much safer to open. (On the 5s, the cable is easily torn if a user is not careful while opening the phone.) ‣ The iPhone 6 Plus still uses proprietary Pentalobe screws on the exterior, requiring a specialty screwdriver to remove. ‣ Apple does not share repair information for the iPhone 6 Plus with independent Visit ifixit.com for thousands of repair manuals. repair shops or consumers.

  155. 155. v Score breakdown: Amazon fire phone ‣ External, non-proprietary screws means no adhesive holding the device together, and an easier time getting in. ‣ While adhesive tabs on the battery ease its removal, it's still a pretty tricky job— if you break the (flimsy) pull tabs, you'll be heating and prying. ‣ Tons of cables and connectors make disassembly tedious and reassembly difficult. ‣ The four Dynamic Perspective cameras are encased in glue. Replacement will mean heat and cutting. ‣ A replacement display assembly will need to include four replacement cameras ($$), or will require a lot of extra work transferring cameras. ‣ The Fire Phone is not modular; several components share cables—this will Visit ifixit.com for thousands of repair manuals. increase the cost of replacement parts.
