Modern day smartphones usually sacrifice form and functionality for design as we’ve seen on numerous occasions. However, the #BlackBerryPriv seems to be an exception to this. A new teardown conducted by a popular YouTuber has found that the Priv has easily replaceable components, including the display, battery, headphone jack and other components.
The fact that the display is easily replaceable is welcome news as most current smartphones usually glue them to the glass panel in order to cut down on the thickness. But given the form factor of the Priv, we see that the company didn’t have to take such drastic steps with regards to the design of the device.
The display is apparently bound together with a couple of screws and very little glue to keep it intact with the glass, but nothing out of the ordinary. This essentially means that should you damage the display on your Priv, it can be fixed/replaced easily without much worry. You can watch the entire teardown video below to get a better understanding of how the test was conducted.
