Google Pixel 7 Pro could be just as difficult to fix as 6 Pro, according to device teardown

There’s been a concerted effort by major smartphone makers to make their phones easier to repair, but it looks like Google’s new Pixel 7 Pro could tackle that trend.

YouTuber PBKreviews managed to get their hands on a Pixel 7 Pro (opens in new tab) before its October 13 release date and with a set of phone repair tools, it destroyed the device into its individual parts. He’s been known to do this with other smartphones as a way of reviewing their repairability. His process involves cracking open the screen with a pickaxe and, at one point, using isopropyl alcohol to corrode the glue that holds the battery in place. Admittedly, it’s quite fascinating to see the phone’s inner workings on full display.
