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

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

YouTubers PBKreviews managed to get its hands on a Pixel 7 Pro (opens in new tab) ahead of its October 13 release date and with a set of phone repair tools, he broke the device down into its individual parts. He is known to do this to other smartphones to check their repairability. His process involves opening the screen with a pick and, at one point, using isopropyl alcohol to eat away at the glue that holds the battery in place. Admittedly, it’s rather fascinating to see the inner workings of the phone on full screen.
