    • Early reviews of the Pixel phones have been positive—and looking at these specs, we're not surprised:

    • 5.5" AMOLED display with QHD 1440 x 2560 resolution (534 ppi) and 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4

    • Quad-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor (2.15 GHz + 1.6 GHz) with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM

    • 12.3-megapixel, f/2.0 main camera with phase detection autofocus and laser detection autofocus; 8 MP selfie camera

    • 32 GB or 128 GB built-in storage

    • Pixel Imprint back-mounted fingerprint sensor

    • USB Type-C port and 3.5 mm headphone port

    • Android 7.1 Nougat

    • Despite its claim to be Google inside and out, this Pixel may have had some fruity inspiration.

    • Similar styling aside, there are a few physical features that set the Pixel XL apart from its most rosey competitor:

    • No home button—Google opted for on-screen buttons, allowing for a sleek, button-less front face.

    • A back-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a single rear-facing camera (sans unsightly bump).

    • Two speaker slits—rather than holey grilles—and a USB-C port, not a proprietary Lightning port.

    • Oh yeah! It also kept its headphone jack right at the top of the phone.

    A HEADPHONE jack? How cowardly of them!

    • Given the familiarity of this iPhone look-alike, our confidence nears cockiness as we take a play from our iPhone 7 Plus guides, heat an iOpener and select our lucky opening pick.

    • After a minute of heat and a minute of prying, we lift open the phone from the top, expecting to expose its inner workings to the world.

    • But alas, a screwed-down bracket on the display cable halts our progress. Time to dust off our driver and dive a little deeper.

    • Our path to victory is clear: remove the bracket, free the display, win. Tools from the 64 Bit Driver Kit make short work of the T5 Torx screws.

    • We like to say that we break things so you don't have to. That's what happened here today. Teardowns are our opportunity to learn how a new device goes together—so we can develop guides with a repeatable, nondestructive procedure for everyone else to use.

    • In this case, the OLED panel separated from the digitizer glass a little too easily for our liking. Super-thin components and no frame or bezel behind the display make it extra sketchy to remove—but, we'll be working on a better way to get it out next time.

    • The Samsung-manufactured display bears the part number AMS546KD09.

    • And riding on the back of the display panel: a Synaptics ClearPad S3708 touch controller.

    Awww... freaking Samesong! You just can't get away from these guys!

    Is the display no longer usable or can it be refurbished?

    • This slim and rigid midframe is likely made of magnesium, and is clipped (really firmly) onto the body of the phone.

    • When we say "rigid" we expect it to not be "bendy". We expected wrong. Oops. It'll bend back.

    • On the left, the midframe holds a mysterious ribbon connector and an earpiece speaker.

    • And to the right, the rest of the phone, complete with motherboard sporting a matte black finish.

    • The daughterboard is a standard blue-green; no family resemblance there.

    To check whether it's Magnesium or not, try dripping a little (hydrochloric) acid on a scratched section of the metal, or cut some shavings off to test for more excitement.

    • Google has a different take on the "pull to remove" battery tab: a perforated portion of the sleeve that, when peeled away, becomes an impressive pull tab.

    • Two strips of fairly strong adhesive secure this HTC-made battery, but the pull tab does its job without heat. (And may do double duty as a tamper-evident seal?)

    • This 13.28 Wh battery beats out the 11.1 Wh iPhone 7 Plus, but not the Galaxy S7 Edge with its 13.86 Wh powerhouse.

    • Worth note-ing, the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note7 packed a 13.48 Wh battery before its untimely demise.

    • Time to pick a peck of Pixel parts!

    • We love modularity! All of these small components can be replaced independently, and will be inexpensive replacement parts.

    • Out first is a strange one: a combination laser autofocus and microphone board.

    • Next out: the 3.5 mm headphone jack. (Take that, Lightning headphones.)

    • And finally, the 8-megapixel front-facing (selfie) camera.

    That strange one is a "Laser-AF" module :) you can see the lights through a camera. :)

    can also solves mystery holes on the backplate :D

    Hyojae Kim - Replica

    The headphone jack - is it OMTP or CTIA? Someone on support forums elsewhere says the headphone jack is OMTP. Can't find this spelled out anywhere.

    John McGing - Replica

    I believe the Pixel is OMTP, which despite being the less popular option, is the more common sense option in my opinion. I'm only going off my Reddit scanning though.

    • We really just want to look at this motherboard, but we're thwarted by a (very Apple-like) fingerprint sensor cable boobie trap! Fortunately, it proves very easy to disarm.

    • Next is another mini board with microphone and the rangefinder that enables the XL's laser autofocus.

    • These smaller bits aren't always so modular; in other phones, we often find them clustered together on the main board. More modularity means cheaper and easier repairs—if a single component fails, you don't have to replace the entire motherboard or embark on a risky microsoldering adventure.

    • Teardown Update: This blue "mystery" component hanging out next to the main camera is likely a passive inductor, as evidenced by its two solder pads and copper wire coil.

    Yes but. More modular daughter boards means more unreliable connections which are also vulnerable to disconnection if the device is dropped. Easier to repair but needing more repairing?

    Isidore - Replica

    The mystery component looks more like an antenna to me than an inductor....

    Larry Chen - Replica

    The blue "mystery" component appears to be an inductive coil antenna. It is located behind the glass-backed portion of the phone, so I suspect it is the NFC antenna.

    Patrick Parish - Replica

    What component is used for the rangefinder?

    Thanks for the awesome teardown!

    • Finally, we remove the highly touted rear-facing camera! At 12.3 megapixels, it's no slouch—though it lacks the fancy optical image stabilization mechanism we found on both of this season's iPhones.

    • And here are the rear- and front-facing cameras side by side, for a little size comparison.

    • And a peep at the sensor and optics in the main camera!

    • And a bonus peep at the primary camera using X-ray vision (hat tip to our buddies at Creative Electron)!

    • Chips on the front of the motherboard:

    • Samsung K3RG2G20BM-MGCJ 4 GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor layered underneath (two cores clocked at 2.15 GHz and two cores clocked at 1.6 Ghz)

    • Qualcomm PMI8996 power management IC, and Qualcomm SMB1350 Quick Charge 3.0 IC

    • NXP Semiconductor TFA9891 smart audio amplifier

    • Qualcomm WTR4905 LTE RF transceiver

    • 3207RA G707A (looks like Wi-Fi)

    • NXP 55102 1807 S0622 (PN551 ?) NFC controller

    • Bosch Sensortec BMI160 low power IMU

    Awesome! Unnanounced Quick Charge 3.0 support

    Kimmy Gibbler - Replica

    Interesting that there's a tiny surface-mount capacitor next to the upper right corner of the Qualcomm WTR4905 chip that seems soldered in an incorrect position. Either the automated optical quality assurance systems used after the reflow soldering process are imperfect, or that single capacitor has been unsoldered and dislodged when the large shield cover plate covering that area of the PCB was unsoldered and removed by iFixit. Note that none among the other SMD caps, including much smaller ones, seem to have shifted their position at all, so it's pretty hard to tell whether iFixit (presumably careful) removal of the EMI shield plate is the cause of what looks like a soldering / manufacturing defect...

    Niklaus Rasp - Replica

    Scary catch there, fingers crossed google did their homework and don't give us the next round of boot loop issues(would be interesting to see how the Google/LG blame throwback would change if google made a similar soldering defect).

    Owen M -

    iFixit takes the utmost caution when removing EMI shields, but given this components proximity to the EMI shield's solder pads, it is likely that the capacitor was knocked off during disassembly.

    • The daughterboard pops out of the rear case with relative ease, giving us access to the USB Type-C port and the microphone.

    • This is a pretty bare-bones part, which means cheap USB port replacements. Historically, USB ports have been a common failure point (although USB Type-C may prove somewhat more robust in that regard).

    • Unfortunately, USB-C has been having, erm, other issues.

    • We found a few bits of silicon on the daughterboard:

    • Qualcomm QFE2550 dynamic antenna matching tuner.

    • AKM Semiconductor AK8789 Hall-effect sensor

    • NXP Semiconductor PTN36241G USB 3.0 redriver

    • ON Semiconductor FUSB340 USB 3.1 SuperSpeed 10 Gbps switch

    USB-C issues cited here are NOT the fault kg USB but of the retailers failing to take the time to purchase quality, certified cables. You wouldn't buy garden hose to plumb a hydraulic cylinder, so don't buy crap cables to charge your $1,000 phone from your $3,000 computer.

    • We give the Pixel Imprint fingerprint sensor a poke, popping it like a hatch from the rear case.

    • Up close it looks different from, but reminiscent of those found in Google phones past.

    • With nearly everything out of the case, we've seen almost zero evidence of this phone's HTC manufacturing origin.

    • Despite being a major smartphone brand in its own right, this time HTC appears to have left its mark on nothing save the battery. As Google's silent partner, it has been relegated to the same status as Foxconn.

    There is a major difference though. HTC is a quality OEM in their own right... just not one with a very good design record as of late. Foxconn is just a slave labor factory.

    Matt - Replica

    Are there any disassembly instructions on the back glass portion?

    Fred Ting - Replica

    • Still affixed to the Pixel XL's chassis is the oscillating linear vibration motor—and that's right where we want it, because a little X-ray magic shows it in action.

    • Our esteemed co-conspirators at Creative Electron rigged up this sweet video comparing the Pixel-powered motor with the latest Taptic Engine from the iPhone 7 Plus. Check it out!

  16. Google Pixel XL Teardown: passo 18, immagine 1 di 2 Google Pixel XL Teardown: passo 18, immagine 2 di 2
    • Teardown Update: You asked and we answered—here's a closer (and less shakey) shot of that vibrating motor.

    • We weren't too impressed with the vibrators plain-shiny-metal-box exterior, so we took a rotary tool to the casing in the name of science.

    • Disclaimer: We were armed with X-Ray images to guide our journey and stumbled upon exactly what we expected: a itty weight between bitty springs.

    • Linear oscillator is the technical term for a weighted magnetic core shaking between two springy metals. The rate and travel of that vibration simulate tactile feedback, which translates into a virtual click without any external moving parts.

  18. Considerazioni Finali
    • Many components are modular and can easily be replaced once the display assembly is removed.
    • The battery has a removal tab and is adhered by a modest amount of adhesive, making its removal painless.
    • All of the screws are T5 Torx screws.
    • The opening procedure requires prying up a thin, poorly-supported display assembly making it difficult to open the phone without damage.
    • In addition to screws, the midframe is secured by snug, press-fit notches that make its removal (and subsequent repairs) laborious.

I was looking for the same thing.

pateluren -

It appears to be mounted in the rear frame of the device. They didn't remove it or the main speaker from the rear frame nor did they remove the earpiece speaker from the midframe.

I'm 99% sure that the vibration motor is the part I indicated in this photo:

Did you guys see the Phandroid video of the Pixel in water for 30 minutes?? How is this possible without glue and a good seal?

Dave Sullivan - Replica

Keeping a phone alive underwater for short periods of time is not difficult—if the water is relatively pure it will not be highly conductive (and therefore not cause shorts). The real damage will show up weeks or months down the line when residual moisture causes corrosive damage. Although their ingress-tested Pixel seems to work fine now, I'd wager it won't be fully functional a couple months from now.

It looks like a fuse of some sort. I wonder if its a fuse that blows if the system is modified. Kinda like what samsung has/had?

shanereynolds0746 -

We added a close-up shot of that component and it looks like an inductor.

Evan Noronha -

This might be the what I was looking for. This might be their IMU. It should be noted that in order to provide the same accuracy and sample rate as the Gear VR the would have to bring one of the more expensive IMUs possibly from Bosch, which is also used in the Oculus and HTC HMDs

Gary Norton - Replica

I don't know if there is enough resolution for me to check the other components on the board in your large images. If not, could you check to see what IMU package they are using?

One thing that sets the Gear VR apart is running its IMU at 1000 Hz and being externally shielded from the internal RF, heat and magnetic fields of the phone itself. It would be interesting how they counteracted these effect in their design as well providing the same accuracy and sampling rate.



All Things 3D

Have you thought of talking with Google about some small changes that would improve the repair-abilty?

Seems to me as though some of this would actually be cheap, and high repair scores would seem like a big marketing win (as well as happier customers).

Apple don't care, but Google just might - another way to differentiate themselves.

Why would they make the screen so brittle? And what is the point of the midframe, if it's so flimsy does it really do anything?

The thermal engineering looks pretty bad when compared to Samsung's recent products or a lot of other devices.... I wonder whether it throttles.

Larry Chen - Replica

Hello Guys really appreciate what you are doing, very neat and educational ... after discovering ifixit i never buy electronics without seeing the interiors first, you make it look like art. the phone looks pretty good from outside, but on the inside I find it more RF oriented than heat dissipation, i find that pretty HTC-esh and was actually surprised because i thought the aluminium and glass blend was more functional than that.

I find also your score of 6 is pretty generous for a phone that might -or might not- require a screen replacement if you want to replace the battery (in six steps)

Khaled Helal - Replica

The one thing that frustrated me most about this phone was the lack of a microSD slot... but interestingly it looks like the mainboard may have room allocated for one of the dual microsd+nanosim readers...

wright9999, @dmitrygr , Iliyan Hristov, check out our standard Pixel blog post, we remove the glass panel there. It's quite sturdy, and with heat and thin prying tools you can remove it without damaging the antennas, it also helps to push lightly from the inside of the phone.

Sam Goldheart - Replica

Alright - I managed to do it. Photos:

Materials: hot air rework station (220 deg C), goo gone, vodka, 2 metal spudgers, utility knife, paper towels, 3M VHB tape, tweezers, needle

Process: heat all around the glass. Suction cups will do you no good (too much glue), use thin needle near plastic antenna insert on the right side (with phone face down) to raise right side of glass. insert spudger. with spudger and hot air station work around the glass from right to left via bottom. Then carefully raise it while heating on top. Do not spudger near top to avoid hurting camera. Carefully use tweezers to remove glue pieces from glass and phone. Use goo gone to clear off remaining glue. Use vodka to clear off goo gone, and clean camera lens from debris and dust. Carefully cut out as many VHB shapes as needed to cover all flat areas on the phone. Adhere them to the phone but keep the protective film on them on top.

dmitry grinberg - Replica

(2/2) Once done, remove protective film from the tape pieces, carefully place glass on top of them. Squeeze.

Enjoy. :)

DO NOT scratch too hard against the back of the glass while you clean it. The whiteness of the white glass and the blackness of the black glass are just some sort of a coating on it, somewhat like paint. While peeling it off the phone and while cleaning it, you can scratch it and make transparent holes in said paint that look weird (see my photos - I did this a little on accident)

dmitry grinberg - Replica

I did this WITHOUT opening the phone since I was afraid of breaking the screen.

dmitry grinberg - Replica

Dmitry, so glad to finally see someone doing it! Have you seen a replacement rear glass part only sold anywhere? Unfortunately I do not have a spare one and still cant find it... looks doable, so i'd definitely try it out once parts become available

Iliyan Hristov -

Can those chips be bought separately by an individual?

Sadly, not that I know of currently. I did ask internally about it. But this did happen, at least: :)

I purchased a Google Pixel XL at Verizon but cancel service due to lack of reception. I have not paid the entire balance on the phone yet so the warranty is no longer valid. That being said, the vibration motor has stopped working. I now need to fix this. Does anyone know where I can locate the part to replace? I've called several places but don't have that part in stock. Your feedback would be appreciated.

How could I remove the 32 GB hard drive from my broken pixel and put it into a working pixel to retrieve lost data?

You really cant. There is no hard drive in phones, only flash memory. There are some places that will use a reflow station to swap the flash modules but it is usually pricey and does not always work. Unless you have data of real value it is probably lost. For the future, make good, regular backups of any data you need just in case you ever lose/break the device.

Hi! How do we reassemble the screen on the phone? We need some special glue? Thanks

I dropped my phone in the toilet. I retrieved it quickly and it is working fine again except the camera lens has water build up and clouds up the pictures. Any suggestions?

i would buy a replacement back glass as that is able to come off, get the condensation out, and put the new one in

I see no images for the back glass removal or the ribbon I just ripped during removal. It outlines the fingerprint scanner but is not associated with it. What did I tear?

Hey Michael, this is not a guide and should not be used as instructions. Our step-by-step repair guides are over here. From your description I can’t tell for sure what’s damaged, but you can try submitting a question in the Pixel XL section of the Answers forum. Good luck!

Hi guys! I have replaced my battery following this guide, but it won’t charge now. It is now totally empty, and if I put it on the charger, only the red light flashes. I tried putting back the original battery, it’s the same issue.

Also, if I not connect the battery at all and just put it on the charger, the red light flashing the same way.

I have measured the battery connector with multimeter and there is current in it (also there is still some current in the battery).

The phone eat out the initial charge of the new battery so the issue now is only with charging.

I have also replaced the charging board (bottom module with the USB-C connector in it) with a refurbished one but the issue still persist.

Is it than a motherboard issue?
