Summary

YouTube channel PBKreviews has a new Moto Razr and has already ripped the thing apart despite the phone not officially launching until tomorrow.We can't imagine the phone will be easy to repair, since the first step is heating, picking, and prying at the glued-together shell, a process the video described as "pretty difficult." You get at the phone through the back, where the top and bottom halves can be popped off, and you'll have to slowly work your way down to the flexible display, which, assembly-wise, is one of the last parts to get removed from the phone.Once you're inside the phone, you'll find it held together with a ton of screws—PBKreviews pointed out 25 screws in the video, and that's not even counting the hinge, which, unfortunately, didn't get disassembled.There are two batteries, split between the top and bottom half. The top half, which doesn't have to deal with the mainboard, houses another battery, the smaller front display, and both the front and rear cameras.The star of the show is that flexible display, though, which is ridiculously thin and delicate looking once you get it out of the phone.
