The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the next big thing from Google when it comes to their flagship smartphone device, and it has been recently released – only to have the good people over at iFixit to take it apart. The GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus will undergo “surgery” so to speak, and it does seem to appear as though dismantling this puppy is far simpler than expected compared to some other devices (those from Cupertino tend to come to mind), but it still is not all peaches and cream to begin with. After all, we’re talking about it being relatively easier, not just a walk in the park.
The Nexus’ NFC antenna and 1750mAh battery are the easiest bits, although that does not mean purchasing replacements as well as spare parts are going to be any more pleasant. It does take a fair amount of work to remove the 5-megapixel camera module, Wi-Fi radio, and RAM amongst others. The iFixit team has yet to complete this mystical journey, so it will take a fair bit of time before they do – hopefully by today.
