    A 360 has like 16 screws and then it's open while an iphone is much smaller with less screws but much much much easier to destroy if you are not very careful. I would not advise doing it yourself while a 360 is a piece of cake

    360 for sure. I've fixed like 3 360s. They're pretty easy to work with.

    360's are the easiest and safest to take apart. I wouldn't take apart an iPhone, they're horrible to get back properly and it's really scary considering it's worth so much more.

    You can do it yourself; just be careful and take your time. Follow a good guide as well and have the right tool(s).
