Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month at an event in New York and the smartphone came with minor upgrades to the design, improved specifications and an improved S Pen. The Galaxy Note line from Samsung is known for its low recoverability score, and iFixit has taken the Galaxy Note 9 out of the blue to see if the technology giant has changed this time. Unfortunately, iFixit discovered problems with battery replacement, phone opening and repairs, and therefore gave a low recovery value of 4 out of 10.
iFixit notes that the Galaxy Note 9 is glued together with a strong adhesive layer and that it should show warmth, use suction and cut the panel open. Once opened, they found that the enormous battery of 4,000 mAh was glued, making it difficult to replace. IFixit also notes that the battery weighs more than what it weighed on the Galaxy Note 8. Even the S Pen was difficult to open without damage.
The do-it-yourself repair site gave the Galaxy Note 9 a low reparability score because of the difficulty to replace the battery and even for a small part, the technician & # 39; s back panel of the glass must be carefully & # 39; gluing (and gluing again later) & # 39 ;. In addition, display repairs require that the entire chassis be replaced or the glue-like cracked glass is difficult to separate. & # 39;
iFixit also has a number of positive things to say about the Galaxy Note 9. It claims that the components are modular for easy removal, and the screws used are standard Phillips screws, making them easy to unscrew. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 price in India starts from Rs. 67,900 for the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage variant, while the 8GB RAM / 512GB storage variant costs Rs. 84,900
