Save money, fix it yourself: Vernee Thor (Video)

by Dimitris Economou 5

Nowadays, more and more users become familiar with fixing their smartphones for a variety of reasons. Either it is because of expensive official support or the lack of it locally, many people buy their repair parts online and fix -or at least try to- their smartphones. The most common repair is the display replacement as, unfortunately, no display is shatter-proof.

But, as manufacturing process evolves and companies try to differentiate from its rivals, tearing down a device has become harder and harder. Take the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for example, as it is considered by many the best smartphone right now. Apart from it beautiful design and capabilities, iFixit, the well-known site for amateur and professional technicians, gave the S7 Edge a repairability score of just 3/10, meaning it is one of the most difficult devices to repair right now.

Yesterday, Vernee uploaded a video, demonstrating how easy it is to tear down the Vernee Thor. In the video we can see that disassembling the device is almost a piece of cake by just unscrewing a few screws and disconnecting a few connectors for various parts like the camera module, display, charging port, etc.

It’s nice to see that there are still devices that one can fairly easily repair by himself at low cost. Below you can watch the aforementioned video. So, do you repair your devices on your own?

    Cracked screen 🙁
    So easy to crack. Had dropped once before and protector for badly scratched, so removed. Corner was cracked. Then just now dropped on wood floor from around 70cm and now have 3 cracks reaching more than half way across screen. If you have this phone, always keep a screen protector on it and buy a case. Damn!

    I was very happy with my Thor until I broke the screen. I bought a replacement screen and followed this video to disassemble my phone. All OK until the part where I had to remove the battery (time 1,50 in the video). My battery was hard to remove, like if it was glued. Nothing easy like in the video. Eventually I managed to remove it but the cable layer underneath was tored down, so now my phone is dead. Very upsetting. Be careful, when following this video. Now I have to buy a new phone !!! 🙁

    I have a Vernee Thor with broken USB interface. From the disassembly it looks like the easiest way to deal with this is to replace the complete board that is holding the USB interface and the motor that takes care of the vibration. Where can I get such a replacement part?
