iFixit, the smartphone repair giant recently opened LG G5 by sliding out the battery and removing two Phillips screws. After that the entire display assembly and motherboard can be pried up out of the aluminum unibody housing. The company claimed that there are no stubborn adhesive, and proprietary screws.
The (wonderfully removable) 3.85 V, 10.8 Wh G5 battery weighs in at 2800 mAh – just edging out the 2750 mAh cell in the iPhone 6s Plus. This a small capacity decrease from the 3000 mAh whopper we found in the G4, but we suspect LG is banking on their customers to take advantage of that replaceable battery.
The LG G5 earned a well deserved 8/10 on our repairability scale. The majority of the components are modular, which makes for easier and cheaper parts replacement.
Initially, iFixit engineers were curious to know about the build quality of LG G5 but in the end it turned out to be a easy task for them since the handset is the first unibody smartphone with an easily removable battery.
