LG-G3-teardown-630x441When it comes to choosing a smartphone, there are many factors taken into consideration. For those who are planning to use their phones for years to come, as opposed to switching on an annual basis for the latest and greatest, having a phone that can be repaired easily and affordably is key.

In the past we have seen how some smartphones have been rated pretty low when it comes to their repairability, but the good news is that if you had your eyes on LG’s latest and greatest smartphone, the LG G3, you might be interested to learn that the folks at uBreakiFix have found that the LG G3 scores pretty high in terms of repairability.

The folks over at uBreakiFix have recently managed to get their hands on the LG G3. In their teardown to see how LG had put the phone together, they found that LG had used contact-style connectors, which mean that performing repairs on the handset would be easier, as opposed to components that might have been glued or soldered, which usually means that there is a good chance of it being damage if taken apart.

They have given the LG G3 a score of 8/10 which is pretty high for a smartphone. So if you were thinking about getting a phone that would be relatively hassle-free when it comes to repairs, and you wanted one with high-end specs that could last you the next couple of years, then perhaps the LG G3 could be just what the doctor ordered.
