Each time that a new device, be it smartphone, computer, console or any other electronic device, the guys at iFixit put hands to work to check if it is repairable and what are the different components that are part of the same. The last console from Nintendo that is already available on the market, just went through the hands of iFixit. Being a modular design, it was expected that the possibilities of repair would be high, something that has been confirmed by iFixit, giving it a score of 8 out of 10 on the scale. Unlike other manufacturers, only glue is present in the digitizer and the display, this console is assembled by means of screws, which raises the possibilities of repair.
As mentioned above, the modular design allows us to quickly remove the components, another thing will be to find components to be able to repair it. As we can see in the video, the battery nor is no problem if we feel the need to replace it since it will be one of the elements that can wear out over time more. However, if the screen breaks us thing is more complicated to be glued to the digitizer, but fortunately this rebate the price of a possible replacement although it raises the price of labor.
Regarding the controls, battery is really hard to replace in comparison with the controls of the Wii, but it is possible. According to iFixit found the negatives in that Nintendo has used own three-headed screws, which will force us to buy a special unscrew to do so. The other negative point found in the amount of glue between the screen and digitizer that requires warm up before can be removed but we want to we break in the process. Final score: 8 out of 10.
