OnePlus 2 teardown: take a look inside the "2016 flagship killer"
The OnePlus 2 is a pretty solid smartphone, but most of its internals can’t easily be accessed by everyday consumers. Sure, you can remove the back plate to swap out different colors if you’d like, but aside from that, most of the other components that make up this device are relatively closed off. So if you’d like to take a closer look at the device’s internals, the folks over at iFixit have you covered. Let’s take a look to see what they found.
Once the rear cover is removed, a screwdriver is needed to take off the plastic midframe that covers the battery. After all 18 screws have been removed and the midframe is lifted from the device, most other major components are exposed – the 3,300mAh battery, the 13MP rear-facing camera sensor, and the Snapdragon CPU. Take a look at the shots above for a better look.

When it comes to repairability, the OnePlus 2 actually scores quite high. Given that most of the device can be torn down with minimal tools, and components are generally easy and inexpensive to replace, the OnePlus 2 scored an impressive 7 out of 10 (10 being the best) on iFixit’s repairability chart. The only real negative the device got was that the LCD and digitizer glass are fused together and need to be replaced as a single part.
