To see the full teardown, head to source #1 below. iFixIt notes that the Galaxy S 4 is easily repairable, save for the display. Due to everything being built on the back of the display, the entire phone must be disassembled to replace a cracked screen. Furthermore, the screen is fused to the glass, which means both have to be replaced, resulting in higher repair costs.
