iFixit is known to rip the devices apart and reveal their internal components. The Google Nexus 7 tablet that is based on the Android 4.1 Jellybean operating system was unveiled by Google at the Google I/O conference that was held last week. Now, this tablet is the highly anticipated device of the season.
iFixit has torn down the Google Nexus 7 and has given the tablet a repairability score of 10 (indicating it is the easiest to repair). If you don't remember, we reported the video of iFixit tearing down the new iPad. The firm has given iPad 3 a score a 2/10 and Amazon Kindle Fire 8/10.
The Nexus 7 display and the LCD are fused together. So, of either one breaks, you will have to replace both the components. The rear case is pretty easy to open and the battery can be replaced without the need of a screwdriver.
The Asus and Google tablet comes in two versions – 8 GB and 16 GB. It has a 7 inch display based on the IPS technology. The display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It has a 1.2 MP front camera for video calling purposes. The Nexus 7 has a 4326 mAh battery that lasts around 10 hours.
