The owner of the channel PBKreviews completely disassembled the Samsung Galaxy M13 smartphone and evaluated it for sustainability.
The first thing you need to do after removing the rear case cover is to unscrew the 16 screws. Only then can you get to the “insides” of the smartphone. To replace the screen, after unscrewing all the screws, you will need to disconnect the flex cable from the main and slave boards, and then warm the front of the smartphone and actually replace the screen with a new one.
You will have to buy the battery yourself, because the M13 does not have tabs to help you with this. You will need to apply isopropyl alcohol to the sides of the battery and wait for about 30 seconds or a minute. After that you can remove the battery.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy M13 received a repairability score of 6.5 out of 10. Of these, 1.5 points out of 2 for location and repair time of parts, 2 points out of 2 for ease of finding all parts, and 1 point out of 2 for ease of finding all parts. Ease of screen replacement, 0.5 out of 2 for easy battery replacement, 1.5 out of 2 for easy replacement of other parts.
Among other models, the Samsung Galaxy M23 5G received a score of 6 out of 10 for maintenance, the Samsung Galaxy A03 6.5 out of 10, and the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G 8 out of 10.
