After going through the specification, it seems to be one of the high end devices. 2.26GHz Quad core processor with 2GB RAM is great. But I would like to get some review with respect to functionalities and other features.

Not so sure the Google smartphone would be great in use, but this makes a great teardown. I just can't get enough of these.

I have to say that I as much as I love tear downs (this is a good one-as usual), I'm not patient enough to click through the slides one-by-one.  It would be great if I could skip to slide 30 and then come back and scroll through the other slides.

Yes, I tend to read the last line of a book before I start on page one too.

Still some glue, but at least you could replace the battery if you needed to.

It is fun to look inside these devices.  The CPU is almost as fast as my laptop with as many cores.  Power in the hand.  This one looks well laid out.  Thanks.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10.
