Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge is a royal pain to repair

You're probably aware that you can't easily pry open the Galaxy S6, but what's it like if you do try? It's something of a nightmare, if you ask iFixit. The repair-it-yourself shop has torn down a Galaxy S6 Edge, and it's pretty clear that Samsung didn't design its latest smartphone with fixes in mind. While most of the parts crammed into that thin frame are modular, the glass on both the front and the back makes it hard to get inside without cracking something. And you can probably forget about replacing the battery at home -- it's glued to the back of the display, beneath many of the other components. The S6's design may be sleeker than ever, but you're losing a lot of the accessibility of years past.
