iFixit Samsung S22 and Ultra teardown

The iFixit Samsung S22 and Ultra teardown reveal Samsung’s innermost flagship secrets. After some very exhaustive deconstruction, the devices earn 3-out-of-10 for repairability.

Let’s start on repairability. The Right to Repair movement spearheaded by iFixit in the US impacts some tech companies embracing the manifesto and some, like Apple, Amazon and Google, opposing it. iFixit’s low score is due to challenging rear panel removal, battery and screen replacement. Its advice is, “Make this phone just a few millimetres thicker! You’ll have more room for heat dissipation and the space for stretch release adhesive under the battery; it is a win-win!

The full teardown is here and the component list for the S22 (here) and S22 Ultra (here).
