Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are easily repairable, iFixit teardown finds

Ivan, 13 August 2020

The team over at iFixit did everyone a solid and put out an easy to follow guide on how to open up the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, should you ever want to replace the batteries inside the buds.

Here's the entire video.
