Google Pixel 5a 5G disassembly confirms it's not the most easily repairable phone
Have you wondered what the inside of the brand new Pixel 5a 5G looks like? Well, PBKreviews has you covered with his latest disassembly video taking us through a detailed examination of what exactly goes into the latest affordable Pixel phone.
Once the screen is pried off we can observe a large black graphene film covering the 4,680 mAh battery as well as several covers over the mainboard and the rest of the internals. The screen also has a plastic frame surrounding by a water-repellent adhesive seal. Digging deeper we find the mainboard, cameras and battery, which requires some alcohol to be removed.
It all ends with a 5/10 reparability rating as the host is not impressed with the easily tearable pull tabs for the battery and cumbersome tape and screw array.
