The most difficult electronic product to repair is judged by its ease of removal. And the spare parts are also replaced by ordinary people or owners of these products (consumers), not technicians or 'service workers'.
With the tools that you can buy at various online stores, can we, as users, do our own repairs?
3 of the most difficult electronic products to repair by iFixit
Samsung Galaxy FoldThe first electronic product that is the most difficult to repair iFixit version is a smartphone with a folding screen from Samsung. Yup! Samsung Galaxy Fold seems to still have to get special treatment from its users.
It is unlikely that ordinary users like us can easily uninstall and install. Samsung Galaxy Fold gets a 2/10 value from iFixit.
To open the outer casing alone you must be very careful because if carelessly will damage other parts, especially the flexible part or hinges to open and close the screen. Not to mention the other parts that are in it, besides the spare parts are still rare, other parts are also new to the technicians.
But this is very reasonable because the type of smartphone with a folding screen is very new on the market and its distribution is still limited. Hopefully in the future the process of loading and unloading HP folding will be easier, huh.

MacBook Pro (2019)Value of 10/10 seems that this Apple product will be a nightmare for those of you who want to fix this laptop yourself. It is easy to open the outer casing of this laptop but after opening the case, the real challenge will be seen.
Almost all important parts in this laptop are patented by soldering or gluing together. Only small parts use bolts to remove them, the rest use permanent adhesives such as glue and solder.
If you've seen YouTube content named Louis Rossmann, you've certainly seen how he opens and repairs an iPhone or MacBook. Must use a variety of screwdrivers to open it, as well as other difficulties that can only be done by the technicians.
Apple AirPods ProIn the last position there is the latest wireless headset from Apple that is Airpods Pro. iFixit gives a value of 0/10 for ease of loading and attaching this device. This wireless headset is the most difficult product to repair iFixit version.
It is reasonable, because in addition to being difficult to dismantle, this second generation wireless headset is also very difficult to replace. This is because almost all parts of the headset are glued together by very thick glue.
So to unpack you have to damage or remove the glue that is in it, and if you want to put it back together you have to replace the broken glue.
So get ready for those of you who will or have bought a wireless headset from Apple, if it breaks you have to provide money to buy a new one. hehe
