Taking place in New York, United States, on August 9, 2018 then Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 9 . It is the second premium smartphone launched by Samsung this year. Previously, earlier this year Samsung had launched Galaxy S9 and S9 + .
As we all know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes with a slight increase compared to its predecessor series. But quite striking, Samsung packed the Galaxy Note 9 with jumbo battery support and a smarter S Pen .
So, what if this smartphone is dismantled? It was iFixit who was keen to dismantle the flagship smartphone, including the Galaxy Note 9. After being dissected, iFixit assessed that this Samsung smartphone had a low repair score.
Not only is it problematic when replacing the battery, this smartphone is also considered by iFixit to be very difficult to dismantle. Of course this will be an obstacle that must be passed by those who want to fix the Galaxy Note 9 if they experience problems.
Therefore, iFixit provides a low repair score of 4 out of 10 points . Similar ratings have also been received by Samsung through Galaxy Note 8 which was introduced in 2017. That is, there has been no change made by Samsung.
iFixit notes that the Galaxy Note 9 is bonded with strong adhesive. To release it, we need a tool that can remove hot steam and some levers. Once opened, we will be faced with a 4,000 mAh battery that is also firmly bonded.
Not only is it difficult to remove the installed battery, some components or other modules also require extra power if you want to remove it. Especially if the screen is experiencing problems, requires replacement of all installed chassis. Yes! It’s really troublesome.
The positive thing is, iFixit also considers that the Galaxy Note 9 still has several modular components that are easy to remove. In addition, the screw used is a standard Phillips screw so it is also easy to remove.
