Many of the reviews we've seen recently concluded that the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is an excellent flagship device, but all roses have their thorns. In this case, iFixIt has shown that repairing Huawei's high-end phablet can be quite tricky, and concluded their teardown by giving the Mate 10 Pro a repairability score of 4 out of 10.

At the end of their 18-step detailed teardown, the guys from iFixIt came up with the following conclusions:

  • although the Huawei Mate 10 Pro has IP67-rated seals, removing the back cover is quite easy 
  • there is no headache involved when removing the USB port, motherboard, and loudspeaker
  • only a few screws are present, all standard Philips and all but one made using non-magnetic materials
  • the internal layout is nicely done, except that the only cable present is soldered to the USB port
  • removing the front camera requires moving away the display and its frame (and possibly damaging them in the process)
  • replacing the display requires the removal of almost every other part of the handset

The Mate 10 Pro arrived this fall as the first handset by Huawei with an 18:9 display, its top-of-the-line specs and features being eclipsed by the lack of a microSD slot and the decision to remove the 3.5 mm audio jack. The sales numbers for this year's final quarter will show if Huawei made the right choices for the Mate 10 Pro or not.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
