Damn, I did not expect that. It seems that Google has come a long way.

Jerry says that the Pixel 6 Pro is the second most repairable smartphone of the year 2022, the only phone being more repairable is the Fairphone, which is literally designed to be repairable.

The biggest argument in favor of the Pixel 6 Pro is the fact that the front panel can be disassembled in less than 2-3 minutes, Jerry even claims 60 seconds should be enough when the repair is done by a professional. That's awesome to hear in case the screen breaks. An easy repair is a big pro.

Skip to 02:19 for the Pixel 6 Pro part.

What also should be noted is the fact that Google opted for a plastic clip system underneath the display (additional to the ever present glue)- meaning you could even swap out the panel and put everything back together, simply by clipping the panel into the phone chassie, WITHOUT glue. Now, that is not recommended, but it's good to know that there is more holding the phone together than a couple drops of glue.
