简介

今天,对我们来说是标志性的一天,因为我们在这天首次拆解了完全由Google公司设计的手机:Pixel XL。那么,有什么值得期呢待?乍一看上去,它不只是有一点点像iPhone——而我们更感兴趣的是它的内脏。拿起你的牛轧糖,我们准备开始把这台手机大卸八块了。

这个拆解是不是维修指南。 要维修你的的Google Pixel XL,请使用我们的服务手册

Pixel的前期评价是不错的——至于它的参数,我们并不惊奇: 5.5英寸AMOLED显示屏,QHD 1440x2560分辨率(534 ppi)并覆盖第4代大猩猩钢化玻璃 四核,64位高通骁龙821处理器(2.15 GHz + 1.6 GHz),搭载4GB LPDDR4内存
  • Pixel的前期评价是不错的——至于它的参数,我们并不惊奇:

    • 5.5英寸AMOLED显示屏,QHD 1440x2560分辨率(534 ppi)并覆盖第4代大猩猩钢化玻璃

    • 四核,64位高通骁龙821处理器(2.15 GHz + 1.6 GHz),搭载4GB LPDDR4内存

    • 1230万像素,f/2.0光圈后置摄像头,支持相位对焦和激光对焦;800万像素前置摄像头

    • 32GB或128GB内置存储可选

    • Pixel Imprint后置指纹识别

    • USB Type-C接口和3.5mm耳机接口

    • 首发搭载Android 7.1 牛轧糖系统

尽管Google声称是全部由它们设计的,但Pixel应该还是有一些别致之处的。 先不管这个相似的外观,我们还是能找到一些区分Pixel XL和另一台玫瑰金色竞品的不同点: 没有Home键——Google依旧选择了屏幕内按键,以实现更为圆润、按键更少的前脸。

因为它与iPhone极其相似,在编撰iPhone 7 Plus维修指南后,我们的自信心几乎爆棚,所以我们直接用iOpener加热然后挑一块翘片。 在加热一分钟又撬动一分钟后,我们成功从上方拆开了手机,企图就此看到它的内心世界。 然而,一个由螺丝固定的显示屏排线阻挡了我们的步伐。是时候把螺丝刀捡出来,继续深入下去了。

  • 我们想说,这次我们弄坏的东西各位不应该弄坏。拆解是一个让我们了解一件新设备如何组装在一起的好机会——因此我们会编撰一个可重复操作、无破坏性的维修指南供各位参考。

  • 在这次拆解中,OLED面板意外的容易从玻璃面板上脱落。超薄的零件和没有背部边框固定的显示屏导致它被拆得相当粗暴——但下次我们会尽可能找到一个更好的拆解方案。

与那些“拉出后取下”的电池不同,Google设计了一个特立独行的方案:在电池的外包装上开孔,撕掉它以后就能成一个非常强力的拉条。 两道强力的胶水将这块HTC生产的电池粘在手机上,但即便没有事先加热,拉条也能完成它的使命。(也许同时还行使了防拆标贴的功能?) 这块13.28 Wh的电池比iPhone 7 Plus 11.1Wh的电池更大,但比Galaxy S7 Edge 13.86Wh电池更小。

The headphone jack - is it OMTP or CTIA? Someone on support forums elsewhere says the headphone jack is OMTP. Can't find this spelled out anywhere.

John McGing - 回复

I believe the Pixel is OMTP, which despite being the less popular option, is the more common sense option in my opinion. I'm only going off my Reddit scanning though.

我们真的很想看看这块主板,却被(iPhone 5s Teardown)指纹识别排线绊住脚!庆幸的是,它很容易拆下。 下一个小板搭载了麦克风,以及构成XL完整激光对焦功能的距离传感器。 这些细小的零件并非总是模块化的;在其他手机里,我们通常看到它们是焊接在主板上的。更为模块化的设计意味着更便宜也更简单的维修——如果某个零件出现故障,你不需要更换整个主板或冒险去焊接这些细小的东西。

Yes but. More modular daughter boards means more unreliable connections which are also vulnerable to disconnection if the device is dropped. Easier to repair but needing more repairing?

The mystery component looks more like an antenna to me than an inductor....

Larry Chen - 回复

The blue "mystery" component appears to be an inductive coil antenna. It is located behind the glass-backed portion of the phone, so I suspect it is the NFC antenna.

Kimmy Gibbler - 回复

Interesting that there's a tiny surface-mount capacitor next to the upper right corner of the Qualcomm WTR4905 chip that seems soldered in an incorrect position. Either the automated optical quality assurance systems used after the reflow soldering process are imperfect, or that single capacitor has been unsoldered and dislodged when the large shield cover plate covering that area of the PCB was unsoldered and removed by iFixit. Note that none among the other SMD caps, including much smaller ones, seem to have shifted their position at all, so it's pretty hard to tell whether iFixit (presumably careful) removal of the EMI shield plate is the cause of what looks like a soldering / manufacturing defect...

Niklaus Rasp - 回复

Scary catch there, fingers crossed google did their homework and don't give us the next round of boot loop issues(would be interesting to see how the Google/LG blame throwback would change if google made a similar soldering defect).

Owen M -

iFixit takes the utmost caution when removing EMI shields, but given this components proximity to the EMI shield's solder pads, it is likely that the capacitor was knocked off during disassembly.

从后盖取出子板相对比较容易,我们在上面看到了USB Type-C接口和麦克风。 这只是个很简单的部件,意味着USB口更换可以很便宜。从历史角度看去,USB接口一直是个常见的故障点(尽管USB Type-C被证明更为耐用一些)。 不幸的是,USB-C还有个,呃,还有个问题。

最后的想法
  • 大多数零件为模块化设计,在取出屏幕后,都很容易拆下。
  • 电池配备了拆卸拉条,并由适量的胶水粘贴,使得电池拆卸可以非常轻松。
  • 所有螺丝钉均为T5梅花螺丝钉。
  • 拆解时需要取下一块又薄,又缺乏支撑结构的显示屏,使得这台手机的拆解很难做到完美无损。
  • 除了螺丝钉外,中框由紧致、按压固定式的卡扣固定,使得移除中框(以及后续操作)比较辛苦。

Thank you guys so much for your efforts every time without fail. I wanted to ask - though they are similar, are there plans to do a regular Pixel teardown as well?

Shea Cardinalli - 回复

I didn't see any mention of the vibration module?

Tyler Bules - 回复

I was looking for the same thing.

pateluren -

It appears to be mounted in the rear frame of the device. They didn't remove it or the main speaker from the rear frame nor did they remove the earpiece speaker from the midframe.

I'm 99% sure that the vibration motor is the part I indicated in this photo: http://imgur.com/Sm9Ybn0

it should be the motor in angle on step 11

Did you guys see the Phandroid video of the Pixel in water for 30 minutes?? How is this possible without glue and a good seal?

Dave Sullivan - 回复

Keeping a phone alive underwater for short periods of time is not difficult—if the water is relatively pure it will not be highly conductive (and therefore not cause shorts). The real damage will show up weeks or months down the line when residual moisture causes corrosive damage. Although their ingress-tested Pixel seems to work fine now, I'd wager it won't be fully functional a couple months from now.

Evan Noronha -

Tuan Tran - 回复

does anybody know, what this crazy little bluish thing on the mainboard is?

Same question, what is this ?...

charlelie tumolo -

It looks like a fuse of some sort. I wonder if its a fuse that blows if the system is modified. Kinda like what samsung has/had?

shanereynolds0746 -

We added a close-up shot of that component and it looks like an inductor.

Evan Noronha -

This might be the what I was looking for. This might be their IMU. It should be noted that in order to provide the same accuracy and sample rate as the Gear VR the would have to bring one of the more expensive IMUs possibly from Bosch, which is also used in the Oculus and HTC HMDs

Gary Norton - 回复

I don't know if there is enough resolution for me to check the other components on the board in your large images. If not, could you check to see what IMU package they are using?

One thing that sets the Gear VR apart is running its IMU at 1000 Hz and being externally shielded from the internal RF, heat and magnetic fields of the phone itself. It would be interesting how they counteracted these effect in their design as well providing the same accuracy and sampling rate.

Thanks

Have you thought of talking with Google about some small changes that would improve the repair-abilty?

Seems to me as though some of this would actually be cheap, and high repair scores would seem like a big marketing win (as well as happier customers).

Apple don't care, but Google just might - another way to differentiate themselves.

Philip Peake - 回复

Why would they make the screen so brittle? And what is the point of the midframe, if it's so flimsy does it really do anything?

Dakotar11 - 回复

The thermal engineering looks pretty bad when compared to Samsung's recent products or a lot of other devices.... I wonder whether it throttles.

Larry Chen - 回复

Hello Guys really appreciate what you are doing, very neat and educational ... after discovering ifixit i never buy electronics without seeing the interiors first, you make it look like art. the phone looks pretty good from outside, but on the inside I find it more RF oriented than heat dissipation, i find that pretty HTC-esh and was actually surprised because i thought the aluminium and glass blend was more functional than that.

I find also your score of 6 is pretty generous for a phone that might -or might not- require a screen replacement if you want to replace the battery (in six steps)

Khaled Helal - 回复

The one thing that frustrated me most about this phone was the lack of a microSD slot... but interestingly it looks like the mainboard may have room allocated for one of the dual microsd+nanosim readers...

wright9999, @dmitrygr , Iliyan Hristov, check out our standard Pixel blog post, we remove the glass panel there. It's quite sturdy, and with heat and thin prying tools you can remove it without damaging the antennas, it also helps to push lightly from the inside of the phone.

Sam Lionheart - 回复

Alright - I managed to do it. Photos: https://goo.gl/photos/CTb2qVUBUpWWEh5Z6

Materials: hot air rework station (220 deg C), goo gone, vodka, 2 metal spudgers, utility knife, paper towels, 3M VHB tape, tweezers, needle

Process: heat all around the glass. Suction cups will do you no good (too much glue), use thin needle near plastic antenna insert on the right side (with phone face down) to raise right side of glass. insert spudger. with spudger and hot air station work around the glass from right to left via bottom. Then carefully raise it while heating on top. Do not spudger near top to avoid hurting camera. Carefully use tweezers to remove glue pieces from glass and phone. Use goo gone to clear off remaining glue. Use vodka to clear off goo gone, and clean camera lens from debris and dust. Carefully cut out as many VHB shapes as needed to cover all flat areas on the phone. Adhere them to the phone but keep the protective film on them on top.

dmitry grinberg - 回复

(2/2) Once done, remove protective film from the tape pieces, carefully place glass on top of them. Squeeze.

Enjoy. :)

DO NOT scratch too hard against the back of the glass while you clean it. The whiteness of the white glass and the blackness of the black glass are just some sort of a coating on it, somewhat like paint. While peeling it off the phone and while cleaning it, you can scratch it and make transparent holes in said paint that look weird (see my photos - I did this a little on accident)

dmitry grinberg - 回复

I did this WITHOUT opening the phone since I was afraid of breaking the screen.

dmitry grinberg - 回复

Dmitry, so glad to finally see someone doing it! Have you seen a replacement rear glass part only sold anywhere? Unfortunately I do not have a spare one and still cant find it... looks doable, so i'd definitely try it out once parts become available

I purchased a Google Pixel XL at Verizon but cancel service due to lack of reception. I have not paid the entire balance on the phone yet so the warranty is no longer valid. That being said, the vibration motor has stopped working. I now need to fix this. Does anyone know where I can locate the part to replace? I've called several places but don't have that part in stock. Your feedback would be appreciated.

How could I remove the 32 GB hard drive from my broken pixel and put it into a working pixel to retrieve lost data?

rickels.ryan - 回复

You really cant. There is no hard drive in phones, only flash memory. There are some places that will use a reflow station to swap the flash modules but it is usually pricey and does not always work. Unless you have data of real value it is probably lost. For the future, make good, regular backups of any data you need just in case you ever lose/break the device.

David Fischer -

Hi! How do we reassemble the screen on the phone? We need some special glue? Thanks
