Samsung Galaxy S4 Revealed to be Easily Repairable
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the most anticipated devices in 2013, and it will be arriving in Singapore soon. We're sure you don't need another reason for getting the device, but here it is anyway -- it's very easy to repair, which also means it could be cheaper to repair as well. We know the same could be said for Samsung's previous flagship devices, but it seems that Techno Buffalo's source is telling them that the new S4 is even easier to fix than the S3. There's even a tear down video, in case you're interested seeing for yourself.
According to the source, each of the individual components can be easily replaced. Parts like the device's slots, ports, and modules aren't permanently attached to the main board. The only problem that folks who'd like to repair their own device, is that the S4's Gorilla glass display is trickier and more expensive to replace. Techno Buffalo estimates that it would cost around US$200 to replace the display, so if your local mobile shop charges you more than that, you might want to go somewhere else.
