It looks like iFixIt had gotten their hands on Amazon's Fire Phone, and the outfit subjected the phone to its usual teardown treatment. Opening the phone would activate a tab that reveals that the phone has been opened, thus signaling to Amazon that your warranty is void if you attempt this at home.
The phone is held together by a few screws and inside there is an adhesive treatment to hold some of the parts together. The team found that all the cables and connectors made repairing difficulty. Additionally, glue also makes repairing a chore.
Overall, the phone got a repairability scale of a 3 out of 10, placing it at the low end of being repairable. The takeaway? Let's just hope you don't drop, break, or damage your Fire Phone.
