Samsung Galaxy A55 taken apart on video, given a high repairability score

Peter, 26 March 2024

There is a lot to see on the outside of the Samsung Galaxy A55 – things like the Gorilla Glass Victus+ and the aluminum frame (with fancy grooved sides). But have you wondered what’s inside the A55? The teardown video from PBKreviews will answer that question.

The phone comes apart easily once you remove the back panel – there are just Phillips screws holding things together. And the battery has a pull tab to make removing it much easier. Have a look:

Overall, the Galaxy A55 earned a high 8.5/10 on the repairability score. The phone got knocked half a point in three categories. The display cable goes through a circuitous route, but is otherwise not difficult to replace and doesn’t require full disassembly.

The Galaxy A55 also replaces the Exynos 1380 of its predecessor with the new Exynos 1480. This chip packs an AMD GPU and runs its A78/A55 CPU at higher clocks. To keep things cool, Samsung equipped the A55 with a large vapor chamber – here is how it compares to the A54 vapor chamber:

We are working on a detailed review of the Samsung Galaxy A55 and we have already completed the battery test – here are the results.

starting from s21 series for the software lock iirc. almost no one has documented this yet. bringing Samsung phones into 3rd party repair shop aren't the best option. unless they can provide you genuine samsung part. this method is to encourage ...

So where is the rift between being and not being able to fix samsung phones occur? Which model/gen prohibits this?

older flagship like s9 have no problems on replacing components. just need to find the proper original screen, else it wouldn't look right.
