IFixit experts evaluated the maintainability of Huawei Mate 40 Pro
Launched on the market almost two months ago, the flagship smartphone Huawei Mate 40 Pro, finally fell into the hands of iFixit experts, who evaluated the build quality and suitability of the device for repair. The results showed that the maintainability of the top smartphone, which starts at $ 1,400, leaves much to be desired. According to the standard 10-point iFixit scale, the smartphone was awarded only 4 points.

Traditionally, iFixit experts have completely disassembled the flagship Huawei Mate 40 Pro and evaluated the build quality, design features, and maintainability. Experts noted both negative and positive qualities of the smartphone design.

Standard Phillips screws used throughout the phone can facilitate disassembly and subsequent reassembly of the Mate 40 Pro smartphone during repairs. The modular Assembly of the main components of the smartphone was also noted, which allows them to be quickly replaced if they are accessed. However, it is with access that the main problems of the device arise.

Removing the battery, which is secured with snap-on tabs, would be easy and quick, but many cables and covers must be removed before reaching the battery.

Among the clearly negative design properties of Huawei Mate 40 Pro, experts called the high fragility of the smartphone. The front and back surfaces are protected by glass and can be easily damaged in a fall. In fairness, it can be noted that many modern top smartphones use this design solution.
