Pixel 7 Pro seems to uphold its series' reputation for repairability in a new tear-down video
The new Pixel 7 Pro has only been on the market for a grand total of 1 day thus far; however, it has featured in a new PBKReviews video already. The YouTube teardown specialist took the 2022 Google flagship apart to get an idea of how easy it might be to restore the device independently if necessary.
To this end, the vlogger's new disassembly video proved to be a virtual re-play of that for the Pixel 6 Pro in 2021, down to the initial removal of the screen via a single connector, boards including one for the new visor-like rear cameras (but not for microSD card support, of course) and 5,000mAh battery with removal tabs that would not function without the application of isopropyl alcohol.
On the other hand, PBKReviews encountered even more internal T4 screws this time around, and found it impossible to sever the 7 Pro's rear panel from its frame. In addition, the 6 Pro's need for a fingerprint sensor re-calibration following a screen replacement was not tested for in its successor in this new video.
Nevertheless, the Pixel 7 Pro was ultimately awarded the same repairability score as its predecessor: 5.5/10. Therefore, a user might stand a chance of taking their own 7 Pro apart and putting it back together again if necessary...so long as they have enough alcohol (for the battery-removal stage) to hand, that is.
