Samsung is launching the Galaxy Note 7 in the US today, but already the guys from iFixit have got their hands on a device and have teared it down.

As with all other iFixit teardowns, iFixit gave the new smartphone a repairability score on a scale of 1 to 10.

1 is the most difficult to repair and 10 is the easiest to repair.

Using this scale, iFixt gave the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 a score of 4 out of 10 on this scale, which means it is quite difficult to repair yourself.

iFixit said the main reasons for this was because the battery was glued in, and both the front and back facing glass are difficult to replace.
