Sticky adhesive holds the display in place. Heat is required to soften the adhesive enough to pry up the display. This adhesive is similar to adhesive found in waterproof devices like the iPhone 6s/7. This device is splashproof, not waterproof. The display cable is long enough to allow you to fold the display over completely, so you don't have to support it while disconnecting.

The Lenovo Moto Z earns a 7 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair): Pull-tab on battery, easy to access once you have the device open.

    • Pull-tab on battery, easy to access once you have the device open.

    • Modular assembly allows independent replacement of many components

    • Display is adhered in place with no external fasteners, but the adhesive is weak enough to easily separate after heating.

    • Charging port soldered to the motherboard means a common repair will be very expensive.

    • Manufacturer does not provide user-accessible repair documentation.
