While smartphones have become more compact over last couple of years, users often complain about their devices’ repairability.

However, Pixel 3a might be the best smartphone for you in case you are going for repairability as a recent teardown by JerryRigEverything revealed the durability as well as the repairability of the Google’s most affordable smartphone.

Afterwards, he went to the teardown part which impressed the most regarding Google’s focus on providing repairability.
As you can see from the video above, it’s pretty easy to open up the device as well as to repaid the phone’s display. Moreover, rest of the smartphone proved to contain modular parts.
