Good news for the Nexus 5X: easy to repair, according to iFixit

In this way, this model, which is quite attractive for many, earns additional β€œpoints” since in the case of having problems the times that will be taken in the technical service will not be very high (and it is understandable that the costs will not either) in addition, the most daring can try to solve what happens to them. And it is that everything adds up when evaluating the purchase of a mobile terminal, and in the case of the Nexus 5X the aforementioned is added to the fact that this model arrives with Android Marshmallow (and with rapid updates as it depends on the matrix of this development) and, As for the price, this is not exactly high since in the US you can buy for $ 379.

The reason for the simplicity that we discussed is the great modularity with which the Nexus 5X is assembled, which allows and performing relatively simple steps in a structured way and, thus, being able to access all the components that make up the smartphone. The fact is that the score obtained by this Google model in iFixit (which has already disassembled a large number of devices) is 7 out of 10, which is not bad in the case of a next-generation mobile terminal.

Manual shift

By knowing the complete sequence that must be followed to completely disassemble the phone, it is verified that many of the elements can be replaced independently, although there are details that should be known, such as the screen and protective glass they are fused, so in this case you have to change both at the same time.

Opening the Nexus 5X case

The internal structure of the Nexus 5X is quite clear and easy to handle, as evidenced by both the good place occupied by the rear camera of the device and, even the fingerprint reader, both of easy access and manipulation. By the way, that this last component takes up a bit more space than you might expect, so a little potential charge is left to the battery.

The fact is that the Nexus 5X is shown to be not very complicated to repair, which is positive, and also offers great speed when updating the software that it includes inside. An example of what we say is the operating system and, also, the applications of the Mountain View company, which is demonstrated with the recent improvement of the Google application, which has received a new iteration that occupies 42 MB.
