Google to sell replacement Pixel phone parts via iFixit

Anonymous Coward


I can see two things coming out of this, neither is sustainability.

First, this is Google's defense against right to repair laws. They can legitimately say that they allow users to repair their phones.

But I wonder if there's a second, more profitable angle? They sell the user the parts, the user messes up, and Google then charges the user for a factory repair or even a new phone if the user manages to brick theirs.
