Nintendo Switch Gets A Teardown from iFixit, Reveals Impressive Level Of Repairability
The iFixit team has once again found a gadget to tear down, and this time it's the popular Nintendo Switch device. The team tore down the gaming console alongside its Joy-cons and dock. At the end of the teardown experiment, the whole system got a very good repairability score.
Nintendo Switch Repairability
Basing on the teardown result, the Nintendo Switch was given a repairability score of 8 out of ten. It's quite a high score and it simply means that the said console is easy to repair when the need arise. There were also a few more things that have been revealed during the teardown.
Nintendo Switch Internal Parts
As per GSM Arena's report, the Nintendo Switch uses tri-point screws. These are uncommon screws that the majority of people may not have the proper screwdriver for. Nevertheless, this isn't exactly a deal-breaker and this is also the only complication that the Nintendo Switch hardware has.
The iFixit teardown also revealed a comprehensive cooling system alongside a substantial 3.5V battery with 4310 mAh power capacity. There's also a microSD slot that augments the built-in 32GB storage. Additionally, the NVIDIA X1 system has also been confirmed alongside the 4GB LPDDR4 DRAM.
Further details revealed that the Nintendo Switch has its stereo speakers inside and the console's display isn't fused with the glass. This means that if the external glass gets broken for some reasons, the actual display has a good chance of remaining undamaged, thus, making repairs cheap.
Nintendo Switch Accessories Teardown
The teardown has also revealed that the controllers aren't exactly identical on the inside. The right one has an added NFC antenna for Amiibo. Additionally, it also houses a camera and LEDs that are necessary for motion-detecting games.
Nevertheless, both the controllers have an advanced vibration motor and a 525 mAh battery on the inside. Meanwhile, the dock has a simple board that consists of two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, power input and one USB 3.0 port. It then plugs into the console via a USB-C connector.
