Google recently launched the Pixel 5a 5G mobile phone, and this mobile phone is jokingly called by netizens as the most affordable Pixel mobile phone, its price is 449 US dollars, and is equipped with IP67 waterproof performance.
At its core, it uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, and is equipped with a larger 6.34-inch OLED borderless screen and a 4680mAh battery.
The rear camera uses a dual-lens module, equipped with Google’s imaging algorithm can bring a good shooting experience.
For this model, many users can only understand its external structure. For this reason, the professional disassembly team PBKreviews announced the dismantling video of Pixel 5a 5G on the Youtube channel. And also scored the difficulty of repairing this model.
In order for the Pixel 5a 5G to have an IP67 dust-proof and waterproof rating, Google covers the side of the mobile phone with an adhesive. The waterproof capability of this adhesive should not be underestimated.
When disassembling, it is necessary to heat and soften the adhesive immediately, and use several prying tools to pry the components of the screen.
After prying open the screen, we can see a huge black graphene film covering the 4680mAh battery, as well as several covers on the motherboard and other internal components.
When digging deeper, you need to use some alcohol to finely rub the parts, and the pull tab of the battery is also easy to tear, so be extra careful when you need to pry out the battery.
It is worth noting that some parts are covered by tape, and the screws used inside are not uniform, and some more complex screwdriver combinations are required.
Although the entire disassembly process is troublesome, it says that the repair of Pixel 5a 5G is fairly simple. The final repairable score is 5 points (the total score is 10 points, the higher the score, the easier it is to repair).
