Just a mere day after we saw the Motorola Atrix 4G torn down to its naughty bits, we now get to have a good look at the Samsung Galaxy S 4G get the same treatment. The good folks at iFixit sacrificed one for science and came to a few conclusions about the device over all:
- Samsung KB100L00WM-A453 512 MB of DRAM, which also contains a 1 GHz Intrinsity Processor in a package-on-package configuration
- The front panel is adhered to the AMOLED display, so they must be replaced as one expensive unit
- Less-than-stellar fit of the front panel and chromed plastic accents can lead to cosmetic issues after long-term use.
- It turns out that Samsung tells no lie -- their structural framework IS made of magnesium! This helps make the device lighter.
Overall, iFixit gave the Samsung Galaxy S 4G a 6 out of 10 for it's cost effectiveness to repair. Had the display been easier to remove it would likely have scored the 9 out of 10 the Motorola Atrix 4G did as there are a lot of internal similarities there. [iFixit]
