With HTC officially announced the HTC One M8 yesterday, we’re sure many of you guys are eager to get your hands on the device. After all what’s not to like? The phone packs some great hardware under the hood and even sports a pretty nice metal body which feels pretty premium.

Those are some factors that people take into consideration when thinking about a new phone, but at the same time there are those who worry about things like durability and repairability. After all no one likes spending a lot of money on repairs if they can help it, right?

Well according to a recent iFixit teardown of the brand new HTC One M8, they have found that the HTC One M8 is pretty damn hard to repair and have given it a 2/10 based on repairability, with 10 obviously being the easiest to repair.

According to their reasoning, this is because it is extremely difficult to open up the phone without risking damage to the rear casing. They also claim that because the battery is adhered to the midframe of the motherboard, it makes it pretty difficult to replace as well. They also cite how the much trouble is to access the display assembly, making common repairs like screen replacements very difficult.
