Nexus 4 is opened by iFixit
-- In less than 1 hour from selling the Nexus 4 sold out in all countries where it was available online, in both its versions as the 8 GB to 16 GB. The editors of the site iFixit were one of the lucky buyers and they have not lost the opportunity to break the fourth generation of the Nexus line. Inside the machine, interestingly, the site found that there are radio chip compatible with 4G networks.
Yes, that's right: the Nexus 4 is sold as capable of HSPA +, and Google explained the reasons to opt for LTE version of the device. However, LG has used the Qualcomm chip MDM9215M, the same as the Optimus G, which works with GSM, CDMA and LTE. This does not mean that the smartphone runs on CDMA networks, or LTE, since there is no signal amplifier for these technologies in the device.
This phenomenon has happened in other smartphones such as the iPhone 4 CDMA, which has a chip capable of running on both GSM and CDMA, but only works on CDMA networks in other technical limitations.
The device is not hard to open: just a flathead screwdriver and a piece of plastic removal to remove the back cover. The site says that it takes a little care when removing the battery: it is pasted with very adhesive, so remove without pierce it can be difficult. Still, the screen is fused to the display and frame, i.e., break the glass will need to replace the entire screen.
The Nexus won four indexes 7 of 10 repair ability, one point more than its older brother Galaxy Nexus. Check out the complete dismantling of the site iFixit.
