iFixit have been busy once again with their toolkit and have this week taken their screwdrivers to the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 which was launched last week.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is equipped with a Samsung Exynos 4 Quad 1.4 GHz processor with integrated 3D graphics, together with Atmel mXT1664S touchscreen controller and Wolfson Audio WM1811AE audio codec, to name just a few things discovered by iFixit.
After the complete teardown iFixit where happy to give the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 an 8 out 10 for repairability which is excellent when you compare it to the low repairability score of 2 out of 10 given to Apple’s iPad. iFixit explains:
“Once the rear case is off, most components can be individually replaced without removing any other parts. The front glass and LCD can be replaced separately, thereby reducing the cost of fixing your Note should you drop it onto concrete in just the right way. The inner frame and some other components are held in with more adhesive than we feel is necessary.”
