Nokia N8 Torn to Pieces by iFixit, Neat Design & Ease of Service Appreciated

October 11, 2010, By Atul Roach

iFixit loves tearing down the best of smartphones and the outfit got to lay its hands on the Nokia N8, which is the current flagship for the Nokia smartphone lineage running on the Symbian^3 OS. Although, the iFixit tearing down act is more relevant for people who are involved in the hardware repair of a device, it still is important for it reflects on the users easiness of handling the device as well.

The iFixit gang members to have torn down the Nokia N8 have appreciated it highly for its neat design and that is the reason why iFixit gave it a high 8 (out of 10) on their fixability scale. iFixit also took note of the “creative” placement of the antennas and its chubby Xenon flash.

A bit of a let down though was the battery as iFixit thought that its placement was not user accessible. iFixit has always been of the opinion (rightly) that a battery should be placed in a manner that a user can easily take it out and that is a bit of a problem with the Nokia N8.
