iFixit tears down the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge – insides are neat, but tight
Samsung's duo of flagships this year boast a design language, which has thus far been foreign to the company – a glass-and-metal construction, oozing of choice materials, in a generally enclosed phone – no more removable back cover, no more user-replacable battery, nor a microSD card slot. But alas, that's the price one has to pay, it seems, in order to get a gadget, with looks that match its tag.
The iFixit repairability score is 3/10, pretty bad, but if we look back – the Galaxy S5 wasn't very repair-friendly as well, as it required the display to be removed from the device for access to anything other than the battery.
- Display 5.1" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 7 Octa, Octa-core, 2100 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 2600 mAh(26h talk time)
