[* black] Motorola Nexus 6 Repairability Score: ***7 out of 10*** (10 is easiest to repair).
[* green] Pressure contacts and cable connectors make the modular components (cameras, buttons, headphone jack) easy to replace.
[* green] The Nexus 6 uses a single kind of screw, although it's a fairly uncommon size (T3).
[* green] Many many screws hold the midframe in place—this makes its removal somewhat tedious, but also means no clips or adhesive are needed to secure it to the front panel.
[* yellow] The glued-in battery is less accessible than we'd like, but it can be replaced.
- [* red] Several components (vibrator, SIM slot, speaker, USB port) are soldered directly to the motherboard and will be more difficult to replace than if they were connected by cable.
+ [* red] Several components (vibrator, SIM slot, USB port) are soldered directly to the motherboard and will be more difficult to replace than if they were connected by cable.
[* red] The digitizer is fused to the display, increasing repair costs for a cracked screen, but it is easy to get to the bare display assembly.
