iFixIt has performed a teardown of the Google Nexus S for those interested in the device.
The Nexus S is a variation of the Samsung Galaxy S, sporting more or less the same hardware specifications as its brethren. Notable changes to the Galaxy S include NFC (Near Field Communication) support and a Super AMOLED Contour Display.
● 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 Hummingbird Multimedia Applications Processor based on the ARMv7 architecture.
● 16 GB internal storage capacity
● 512 MB total RAM
● 5 MP rear-facing camera and a VGA (640x480) front-facing camera.
● Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
Nexus S Repairability Score: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
● Battery is very easily replaceable -- just remove the back cover to swap it out.
● The motherboard comes out easily once you're inside, as it's held in place by regular screws and connectors.
● A lot of the phone's components are modular, meaning that they're simpler to replace, but will cost more as replacement parts.
● Front panel is attached with adhesive instead of screws, so it's harder to take off than on the iPhone.
● If you shatter the front panel glass, the SAMOLED has to be replaced as well -- they're fused together
