The engineers/destroyers at iFixit have taken apart the upcoming HTC One. Since there are no screws used in the construction of the body (thanks, unibody aluminum), the fearless dudes needed to turn to a heat gun (gasp!), a suction cup and a metal spudger to gain access to the internals. Once inside, they were greeted by every single component — which for some reason was covered in a difficult to handle foil, plus fasteners for the 2,300 mAh battery.
As a result, iFixit awarded the HTC One a score of 1 — it’s nearly impossible to take apart and repair.
