Repairability of Huawei Mate 40 Pro by iFixit Rating Lower than Apple iPhone 12

Published

on

Disassembly experts from iFixit got to the Huawei Mate 40 Pro smartphone, but after examining the internal structure of the device, they came to disappointing conclusions. It will be almost impossible for an ordinary user to replace parts on his own or at least remove the cover without damaging the system elements. And this despite the completely modular design of the smartphone.

The weak points of smartphones with a glass body are the cracking of the display and the body lid when knocked or dropped. Removing the cover of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro by yourself may damage the elements. To lift it, iFixit craftsmen had to heat, pry and even trim the panel.

During the disassembly, there were some unpleasant surprises due to the use of hidden flexible cables. One of them was accidentally damaged during disassembly.

Enthusiasts have found that the display is firmly glued with a thick layer of glue (the manufacturer clearly did not regret it). However, the display cannot be replaced without removing the battery, and the display must be removed to replace the fingerprint reader.

Although real chaos is happening inside the smartphone, the fully modular design speaks in favor of the model, which allows you to disconnect and replace any element of the smartphone. True, you still need to get to it without damaging other components.

As a result – 4 points on the iFixit 10-point maintainability scale for Huawei Mate 40 Pro. For comparison, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro have a score of 6.

Thus, the owners of this model are not recommended to undertake the repair of the device on their own, and it is better to entrust the procedure itself to certified service centers.
