The smartphone has already passed the usual iFixit test that determines its level of repairability. And if you’re thinking of buying it, it’s good that you know you’ve received a negative score – 4 out of 10 points. You can check the details below.
As the rear panel is removed, it immediately resembles the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. This is because it has good proportions of adhesive, although it is not exactly an arduous task.
And before removing the battery, it is necessary to go through some cables. It is therefore advisable that any future replacement of this component is done by professionals, so that nothing is damaged.
OnePlus 9 Pro camera module can only be removed after the battery
Unlike, for example, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the OnePlus 9 Pro has tabs that facilitate the removal of the battery in the final stage of the procedure. And it is good to note that it is only at that time that it is possible to proceed to the removal of the camera system in case of failure.
Another detail to take into account is that the screen also requires a generous disassembly process, which means that it will not be exactly easy to remove if you break it. In addition to the adhesive, the side margins will not facilitate the process.
This rating of 4 out of 10 points is negative, although in line with the OnePlus 8 Pro. It is recalled that the Galaxy S21 Ultra, one of its main competitors, scored even worse (3 out of 10 points) in this test.
Either way, this is just a gauge of the difficulty that you can expect in repair. There will certainly be smartphones that are easier to repair on the market, but that will not be a deciding factor for many consumers purchasing the OnePlus 9 Pro.
