在他们追求无边框屏幕时,Essential设法为前置摄像头和隐藏听筒挤出点空间。 转到背面,我们发现这款手机的一个小东西 - 内置的两个电源磁力触点。 这就是让一些不必要的东西固定在Essential 手机上的锚点。 对于更多的承诺,到目前为止,一个360°相机是唯一可用于于Essential手机的配件。

  • 我们还发现一个内置的双摄像头系统,为那些需要拍摄高质量'〜180°照片的人,加上指纹传感器负责确保Essential手机的一些基本功能。

According to my experience (with an ANCIENT Mortorolla), these thin speaker grill tend to be FILLED with dust and similar things with a high dirtiness. I do not like it.

The 180º photo is pretty much a lie, by the way.

    • 我们很“高兴”地发现它不能完全取出来。 难道在他们制造Essential的时候难道是围绕着这个小标签造的 ?

Do you think it's possible to break the mic if you firmly insert a pin in the wrong hole (the one *too* close to the one to release the sim card) by mistake? That would be a very bad design...

I don’t really think so. most glue was either heat-softened or dissolves quickly by WATER, which will DESTROY the phone.

wow horrific phone! 10/10 to iFixit for effort, 0/10 to Essential!

Will - 回复

This is a phone where iFixit will have to determine if it's even worth selling replacement parts.

chris - 回复

the repair score should imo get a zero instead of a 1 because you cant open the %#*@ thing without destroying it.

My1 - 回复

this phone is essentially future trash. too bad

thanks iFixit for the honest repair score!

Andrew - 回复

Why a phone is bad because independent repairs are almost impossible?

OEM has been moving to proprietary components and outta-nowhere configuration to have on purpose to un-motivate people to go to beyond the warranty and authorized repair centers, since YEARS ago.

I appreciate the work from iFixit but saying that you won't buy a phone or it is "DOA" because OEM wants to control THEIR products is so childish at theses modern days.

(Please, spare me the "is easy for you to say because you don't own or work on a workshop and repairs give food to our tables". I know a few owners that although s just more spending, they are working on becoming authorized repair center for most brands.)

TheGeeZus - 回复

When you have to freeze a phone to get it open, that's a new level of WTF.

JJ Davis -

ifixit gives repairability scores, this isn't a review of the phone. That people still don't get this and come to this site to complain about it is beyond me.

tipoo -

Sure, an OEM can control THEIR products. And I can decide not to buy THEIR products if their design is un-repairable. One little drop, splash or sit on it in my back pocket one time too many and it's toast... yeah, they can control their product all the way to bankruptcy court if that's where it takes them. You make it sound like I'm obligated to buy THEIR product - I am not. Thank you iFixIt for yet another informative teardown!

R. Andrew Thomas -

It's a repairability score man, not a condemnation of the phone itself

Akko -

When manufacturer wants me to spend 300$ on replacing the usb port instead of 30$ due to poor design decisions or just to cut down the manufacturing costs they no longer could be considered good in any way.

Smartphone is not something you use for a few days and then toss it to trash replacing with a new one, it's an increasingly complex and expensive portable computers that should be as serviceable as possible.

Alex Lee -

If you're such a big fan of unnecessary electrical waste, I assume it's OK if I dumb a few tons of heavy elements in your back yard?

Repairability is not just about an individual saving a few dozen bucks here and there, but also about environmentalism. The more repairable common electronics are, the longer they stay in use by someone, somewhere, the less waste generated from buying new devices that are just marginal upgrades from the previous.

Ståle Helde -

Thank you for your support, TheGeeZus! It's nice to hear that you enjoy our work, and you bring up a great point about ownership and repair as well. You can find some fantastic information at both ifixit.org/right and repair.org/stand-up.

Richard Suovanen -

Thing is, it’s not THEIR product when you buy it. It’s not a license agreement. Do not repair is nothing other than a way to force us to get new products and giving them more money. Best practice should be to be able to repair a device that you own.

Sebbe -

Designed to trash.. Like most other consumer electronics. Try and take a look at 99% of the appliances in your homes, most of them are designed to fail and spare parts are unnaturally high cost to encourage new purchases. And as long as the consumers doesn’t make a conscious decision to choose not to buy the goods with low repair-ability, then the manufacturers will keep on refining the “if only 90% makes it past warranty period it’s fine” mentality, that constantly tries to ensure more $@$* can be sold.

I mean.. there’s people that gladly spends more on throwaway gadgets than they would comfortably spend on car maintenance, and still think it’s sad that no one is doing more for the environment. Sadly most people are happy as long as the medias keep numbing their intellect with “don’t think” TV-shows, that keeps them pacified and not thinking for themselves.

Not an option for most part of Africa and possibly Asia. We depend mostly on local repair shops as the cost of exploiting a warranty is almost impossible. Who wants to mail a phone from Nigeria or Uganda to a service centre in the US or UK? Essentially, this phone is not for some of us.

Abbas Abdus-salam - 回复

I am surprised that people expect highly-integrated, ultra-miniaturized electronic devices to be repaired nowadays. It's like trying to tear down a microchip and repair the transistors inside it, just because 50 years ago you could replace the fried transistors on a board performing the same functions as the today's microchip. This is the price paid for miniaturization, for bezel-less phones, for large batteries. Instead, there is warranty, there is insurance, etc. Things have evolved and ironically, the evolution has been dictated by us, customers, the ones that are now complaining :)

Dennis James - 回复

Demonstrably false. 2017 phones are not significantly different on the inside than 2012 phones,and lots of 2012 phones are extremely easy to repair with inexpensive parts you can order om eBay. I just recently repaired a nexus 5 with a busted USB port, worn out battery shattered camera glass and very ugly back cover for just 25 bucks. The difficulty of repair in phones is mainly because certain manufacturers insist on using pretty materials instead of durable materials. When a phone isn't even waterproof, there is no good reason to make them difficult to open, other than to make them difficult to repair so that they can sell you a brand new phone instead of you replacing a 5 dollar USB port.

Ståle Helde -

Spoken like someone who would pay extra to be able to upgrade a phone every 6 months. Believe it or not there are still a lot of us who buy for the long term. For people like me self repair or local shops are the only way to go. I have had 2 phones in the last eight years and I really appreciate these tear downs. They can actually be a deciding factor in which phone I purchase.

You have obviously not worked all that much, I could be wrong but don't think so, with electronic devices. Usually it is not the miniaturized parts that go bad first rather the battery or the connectors. And these are parts that most people handy with small tools can replace.

Thanks iFixit for your work.

protagonistic -

Why go through the back.

If you look at the Essential website they show an exploded view assembly and clearly you need to go through the front.

The motherboard is remove by front facing screws. You can't do any motherboard repair without getting the screen off first.

I'm curious about that when the Essential Phone is in Warranty and send it back to the Essential company, how do they fix it?

Mandy - 回复

@Mandy: Since it's a "startup", you won't be able to get proper service anyhow (like OnePlus). So if you battle through the 1000 challenges, they will simply replace the entire device most likely. But, just like OnePlus did/does, I think Essential will also try to change every claim into non-warrantial. I.e.: "Don't even ty to send it back."

Enjoy! I love underdogs, but this is one fat reason why one would dislike them. This is why I bought Huawei, and before that, Samsung. But I also had HTC, they all had repair centers all around Europe. And they were all really professional and cool with the repairs. !&&*, if I walk into Huawei they do almost all work within hours, it's crazy good and professional.

A анонимный - 回复

OnePlus was not a start-up company, please stop perpetuating this myth.

qwirked -

I bought mine about three weeks before the price drop and they just credited $200 back to my credit card without being asked. Also, my other phone had bitten the bullet. I ordered it on Saturday, emailed them on Sunday asking them to rush it along if possible and they responded immediately on a Sunday, and it shipped Monday. Now my verizon/motorola phone that had a defective screen was a nightmare to get supported because neither company knew who was responsible.

Raymond Ferguson -

"Essential" is a joke in my opinion.

is it a chip exactly upper than Fresco Logic FL1100-1A0-LX USB 3.0 host controller?(or i mis-steakin?)

and abut how repairable is this phone: well it is kinda bad that you need a lot of work to fix it but think from different angle, it will be more shock prof than almost every other phone!

to metal plate supporting internal components!

and most likely if you send it for warranty they will replace it with new one!

Mojarch - 回复

this is what happens when a software expert decides to go into hardware without consulting the big dogs in the business... the result is an essential phone without essential features and repairability.

Ezekielo Tech Vlogs - 回复

Muito bom, Parabéns à equipa.

NPimentel - 回复

These teardown videos are great. In short, before buying any device anyone should watch a teardown of it. If not available, skip the product altogether unless you want to make a teardown video of your own (if and when time comes) and risk non repairability of the device. Much like car industry must provide maintenance manuals and perform safety tests (of which videos are available) there should be also a law about portable devices which requires all manufacturers to provide teardown videos and repair manuals. There is so much talk about “greening”, “sustainability”, “eco-friendly”, “care for the planet” but sounds to me it’s mostly greenwashing. Want to cut reduce drastically the speed at which we consume resources that go into making electronics? Allow anyone willing to repair and keep their old devices to do so providing info and parts. There’ll be always those who buy new every year or so (that’s here to stay). Those of us who prefer conserving and responsible consumption should be allowed to pursue it.

Um…Essential stated that you need a suction tool to remove the display properly after heating it up. It was in one of the AMA’s they did on Reddit. I think you should revisit this in the idea of being fair and unbiased.

Jeff Warner - 回复

Can you re-do this since essential confirmed you did it incorrectly. Here is a link on how to actually do it:https://www.reddit.com/r/essential/comme...

Gabriel Williams - 回复

Jeff and Gabriel, the purpose of the teardown is a first glance repairability assessment using the tools and knowledge available at the time (you’ll notice we published this a couple months before that AMA). Essential had no public repair manual so we had to improvise with the tools we had available. As stated we did try heat first (“After applying more heat and sharper tools than might be advised, we reverse the polarity and start chilling out.”). If you watch our video teardown at the top of this page you’ll see that our video team had a better time with heat and a razor—but still broke their display, so unfortunately the score stands.

Sam Lionheart - 回复

Then something should be added at the start to keep people from claiming the device is unfixable and cite you. Because the device is pretty repairable, but no one does research past you. Giving a false idea of the device.

Jeff Warner -

We’d love for you to post repair manuals and prove us wrong! ;)

Sam Lionheart -

you guys are a fraud. You opened this up in the worst way possible. Get some heat and suction and pull that baby off

Chester Davos -

We probably could have emphasized this more in the teardown, but: all the heat and suction we could throw at it did nothing to weaken the adhesive. And we used a lot more heat than we’ve used on other devices—enough to cook the display, and probably just short of blowing up the battery and aborting the entire teardown. Can it be repaired? Sure, but they’ve made it about as difficult as anything we’ve ever seen in the smartphone realm. And we’ve dismantled plenty of stubborn phones. The second unit we received came apart more easily, so I’m not sure how to explain that (manufacturing variances?), but our initial experience was not good.

Jeff Suovanen -

Real biased teardown. My thought is you were paid to do such a horrible job to deflect a good phone from competition. Here is a easy fix where you failed and still fail to update, why? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCKxAQXd...

Jon Nagel -

Jon, the teardown has been updated to more thoroughly explain the process we went through. It doesn’t change the fact that the phone is assembled with extremely tough glue, and there’s a high probability of destroying the display en route to attempting any repair. That earns it a low score, at least on the initial release. It’s easy for someone else to post a nice clean procedure two months after our teardown, but when you are probing your way into a phone like this on day one with zero guidance, it’s not as easy as it may sound. This teardown reflects that experience.

Jeff Suovanen -

You want a phone that wouldn't need to be repaired before you want a new phone. Now, you can satisfy your curiosity with a teardown. Modern components are generally reliable to last until then. The only thing that fails is the battery. And that is not much of a contribution from the phone manufacturer.

Debasis Goswami - 回复

The thing that most people break are screens. Shattered screens are super annoying and are pretty easy to get off on lots of phones. On new iPhones, you just have to heat up the waterproofing adhesive before opening it (6S and above). Same thing with many more phones. You shouldn’t have to do… this.

Liam Powell -

You don't have to do this Fixez.com on YouTube had a much better guide for the teardown it's easier than an iPhone screen replacement.

David Baudin -

You guys should redo this teardown the right way instead of misinforming consumers. Fixez.com did a video on YouTube where all they did was great up the screen and removed it to access the internals. It's one of the simplest teardowns I have ever seen.

David Baudin - 回复

Yep, makes these guys look like amateurs

Chester Davos -

Seriously? You guys still haven’t fixed this? Ridiculous. It’s almost liek you’re getting paid to push certain phones down or something…

There are multiple videos of people getting it without damaging the device at all. Redo the guide and admit you messed up.

Jeff Warner - 回复

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_conti...

Gauntlet thrown.

After watching Fixez’s video, I can’t help but feel that ifixit overly dramatized this teardown in order to get headlines. Time for a revisit and perhaps some humility.

Anthony Larson - 回复

So if the goal is to replace a cracked screen what makes this so hard to accomplish? Obviously the issue with damaging the screen to get into the phone isn’t an issue if that’s what you are replacing. Or did I miss something?
