The Motorola Edge 20 Pro teardown video was posted on YouTube, highlighting the difficulties in fixing the newly released smartphone. The video also shows how difficult it is to change the Motorola Edge 20 Pro’s battery. Also, to replace the smartphone’s screen, all components need to be removed first. The Motorola Edge 20 Pro was released globally on July 30th and comes with a 4,500 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 870 SoC with 12GB of RAM.
The seven-minute teardown video posted by PBKreviews shows that the Motorola Edge 20 Pro achieved a repairability score of 4.5 out of 10. The video begins by removing the Motorola smartphone’s back panel by applying some heat and using a lever. The video shows that replacing the Motorola Edge 20 Pro’s battery is difficult, as many of the smartphone’s components would need to be opened. Since there’s no pull tab on the battery, removing it can be a bit risky; the adhesive is quite strong and requires the application of isopropyl alcohol.
In addition, there are also a lot of graphene sheets whose main job is to help transfer heat. Once the graphene sheets are removed, the battery cable can be disconnected and there are other connected cables that need to be removed in order to lift the motherboard from the body. Once the motherboard is removed, the speaker assembly needs to be removed to reach the battery.
Interestingly, the video shows that the Motorola smartphone comes with a 4,500mAh battery, while the battery removed from the phone had a typical capacity of 4,520mAh.
The Motorola Edge 20 Pro disassembly video shows that to remove the display, the back plate would need to be removed along with the top cover screws, the top cover itself, as well as the display battery and cables. Lastly, the front of the screen would need to be heated to remove the adhesive. Notably, the power button and volume buttons are routed between the frame and the screen, meaning that the entire phone would need to be disassembled to replace these buttons.
