iFixit teardown: See what’s beneath the Nexus 5

iFixit is back at it again! The fine folks have sacrificed a shiny new Nexus 5 — Google’s sequel to Nexus 4 introducing Android 4.4 KitKat — to give us a look under the hood.

iFixit takes a shiny new hardware and opens it up to separate every part inside of it to give its audience a truly “inside view” into that device. And this week, Nexus 5 it is.

The teardown shows us that the battery in Nexus 5 is fairly easy to remove and replace with a new one. ┬áIt’s also very repair-friendly, that is unless anything goes wrong with the glass and LCD that are fused to the display frame. As a result, these part of the device is very sensitive and any fix to this area can be either very expensive or extremely difficult.

Take a look at the video above and the source link below to see the teardown in detail and let us know if that makes you feel any better or worse towards the Nexus 5.
