Earlier today iFixit reported on the results of their teardown of the Motorola Moto 360. Achieving a score of only 3 out of 10 for repairability, Motorola was in for more criticism when the iFixit team noted the battery was labeled as 300mAh. This was at odds with Motorola’s stated specs for the device indicating it had a 320mAh battery.
The Moto X has made its way to the general public, and just on time, iFixIt has torn it down so we can see it in all its glory. They say that it wasn’t difficult to take it apart besides a few clips and screws and some glue.
Open it up! That is exactly what iFixit has done, in usual fashion, to Amazon’s new set-top box. Fire TV has gotten the teardown treatment. iFixit rates devices from 1 to 10 when experiencing a teardown in terms of ease. Getting a 10 would solidify an easy fix when the time comes. In this case, the Fire TV set-top box earned an average 6.
Who doesn’t like a nice teardown every now and then? Our friends at iFixit just did one on the Kindle Fire HD and found it to be as easy to repair as the Nexus 7. Based on a scale of 1 to 10, iFixit gave it a 7.
Rounding out a trio of teardown’s by iFixit this week is an attempt to find out just what it inside the Samsung Gear Fit device. The team’s teardown revealed some tightly packed electronics inside the device along with some good news. Although it would take quite a bit of work, users could replace their own battery should the need arise.
