A popular YouTuber JerryRigEverthing is known for his mobile durability tests and teardowns that he puts famous smartphones through. Just recently NoPhone successfully went through his scratch, durability and flame tests elegantly. Now in a recent video, the YouTuber brings forward Essential phone and performs a teardown to explore what lays inside the tech.
One of the downsides of the Essential phone, as explained by Jerry, is the fact that the phone is quite hard to repair and have zero replacement parts available even after months down to road of its launch. To open up the phone, there are quite high chances that the display would get sacrificed which isn’t quite appreciable.
The phone isn’t the most well-managed phone when it comes to the internals placement and by removing the battery and other components, it shows up that the charging connector isn’t replaceable too as its directly linked to the motherboard.
The phone features total of 9 little bits and pieces that keep hold of the internal components of the phone. Overall, the entire teardown summarizes the fact that Essential is definitely one of the hardest smartphones to repair in 2017 with different screw sizes making it even more complex.
