Einleitung

Luckily for repairers, pulling the battery out of the Lenovo K5 Note is a simple task. Unfortunately, however, a broken display will require a bit of work for repair, thus yielding a repairability score of 6 out of 10.

Rear case is a tight fit, but with the SIM card removed it pries off with determination and a couple picks. No screws or glue. Spring contacts connect the camera flash module and presumably some case antennas.

The primary camera is firmly glued to the midframe. It might be possible to extract it without first removing the motherboard, but only with some risk of pry damage to the motherboard.

  • The selfie camera is installed on the back of the motherboard, requiring removal of the motherboard for access.

  • Both cameras are modular.

  • With the interconnect cables out, this is as far as we go. The display looks to be firmly secured to a mid-frame for rigidity and would be impractical to separate. While it's the most likely component to break, everything else mounts to it—making it effectively the last component to be removed.
