Smartphones and their repairability

People always ask us where their cellphones stack up in terms of repairability. We want people to make informed decisions, as their votes influence how hardware manufacturers choose to design in the future.
Some may care that their cellphones are easy to repair and have swappable batteries; others may not. For those that do, we've aggregated our repairability scores for the best-selling smartphones into one convenient line-up:

We weren't able to rate every single phone on the market, but this list is a good start. We have to disassemble each phone to score it, so additional hardware will show up as we perform more teardowns.

Every time someone walks into an electronics store, they're making a choice. Every gadget bought is a vote cast. Our hope is that through customers' votes, manufacturers will create long-lasting, easy-to-repair hardware that we can all love.
