The handset also comes with three cameras, one 8 megapixel camera on the front for Selfies and video calls and two 12 megapixel camera on the back.
The guys from iFixit score devices on a scale of 1 to 10 on their repair index, one means that the device is very difficult to repair and 10 means that it is fairly easy to repair. How did the new Galaxy S9 Plus do? It only managed to score 4 out of 10, this means that the device is fairly difficult to repair.
Whilst a lot of components in the handset are modular and easy to replace, the battery and display are hard to replace, this is what the handset ended up having a lot score. You can find out more details over at iFixit at the link below.
