The Essential Phone is incredibly hard to fix

The Essential Phone is incredibly hard to fix”

So, in case something goes wrong with your Essential Phone, the official service folks might be the only option for you, else you will most likel end up inflicting more damage on your phone.

The Essential Phone was always meant to be a jewel of a device, something that stands at least a few steps away from the iPhones and Samsungs of the world because of its premium fit, finish, and design. The Essential Phone is nearly impossible to fix. This can be another reason that may cause the customers to not to buy the Essential Phone. In conclusion, iFixit gave Essential Phone a repairability score of 1 out of 10, indicating a very hard process for the fix.

Ultimately, Essential's first offering gets the worst fix score possible, a 1. How much did Essential Phone score? Be sure to head over to iFixit to read its full teardown, because it's certainly worth a once-over for everyone considering the Essential Phone.

But still, Essential is a company that takes pride in being open; it uses stock Android software, has a logo-less design and points out that the phone is the owner's "personal property". According to the iFixit guys, they had to crack open the phone via breaking the display and that too after freezing the back panel. Since there is no headphones jack, and the USB port serves a major goal, it can not be troubled. Essential chose to drop the headphone jack with its first flagship, opting instead for audio through USB-C. Hence, the USB-C port can wear out faster.

The identification marks of the smartphone are placed on a small tag that resides under the SIM card tray. Still, reaching the battery of the smartphone is a hard task.

The Essential Phone hides almost invisible seams inside, and a lot of adhesive too. The full teardown, complete with the entire nitty-gritty, can be found at the Source link below.
