Smartphone teardowns are exciting to watch, especially for the geeks who look forward to knowing whats inside their smartphones. Previously a popular YouTuber with username JerryRigEverthing did a tear down for recently released Samsung Galaxy S8 which suggested that the Korean tech giant might possibly have considered incorporating an image stabilization mechanism into it though for some reason they seemed to drop the idea.
Now the same YouTuber has done a teardown of Galaxy Note 8 where it pulled off the rear casing with a blade, unscrewing and taking off the inside black casing. Underneath that, we get to see tons of circuits and components.
Jerry mentions how the device isn’t waterproof and reminded that the company doesn’t cover damage done via water so better the users stay safe dipping the water too deep or for too long, even though we know Note 8 is water resistant certified.
In the video, he goes through the procedure and finds out how hard it gets to replace the display or swap the battery on Note 8 so that in few years when it gets weak, it could be replaced. In the description of the video, he mentioned:
“Luckily replacement parts for the Galaxy Note 8 aren't that expensive (Well the screen is expensive) But Everything else isnt so bad, especially as the device gets older.”
Enjoy the actual teardown video above.
