The Motorola Edge+ is the company’s latest and greatest device to launch, and it’s apparently incredibly difficult to tear down. YouTuber PBKreviews specializes in disassembling smartphones of all sorts, and his latest subject is the Motorola Edge+, giving us a nice clear look into just what exactly is going on under that glossy hood.
The first thing he notes is simply just how sparse and uninspiring the packaging of the device is. For what’s essentially a top-of-the-line flagship, the phone comes in an extremely plain box, with basically nothing but the charger in it. Keep in mind that this phone goes for $999, you’d expect more for such a price.
He then heats up the back plate off screen before prying it with cards and plastic picks. According to to him, popping off the rear is absolutely no easy task, and we’re inclined to agree. The back panel is made out of glass, and there’s no flex to it, which is reassuring.
The disassembly process then begins proper, as he slowly and methodically begins to remove pieces from the device one by one. It’s quite impressive to watch as he removes the main board from the device, with all the components still on it.
The important things to note are the sheer amount of antennas everywhere in the device, courtesy of 5G support, and the 108MP camera module being huge. The battery is also firmly glued into place, making replacing it a painfully monumental chore.
If you’d like to take a more in-depth look at the video, you can check it out on PBKreviews’ channel. He does an excellent job of dissecting every possible thing in the device, and is very thorough with it. In the meantime, for all things Motorola, stay tuned on Giztop.com.
