Sony Xperia Z2 gets disassembled – it's very easy to repair!

Sony Xperia Z2 gets disassembled – it's very easy to repair!
We already eyeballed the insides of both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8), and it seems that the folks at Mobile China want to add Sony's finest – the Xperia Z2 - to the equation. The flagship device was completely taken apart, which enables us to behold its insides.

It appears that it's rather easy to open the smartphone and repair its hardware components, unlike the already mentioned Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8). The build of the Z2 is almost identical to that of its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z1. The teardown also reveals that it's very easy to access one of the most important hardware parts, the motherboard. From there on, you can pretty much access any other component.

You can see the complete teardown of the Sony Xperia Z2 in the gallery below.

I'd buy it because it has Samsung parts and I'm a Samsung fan.

this is definitely not sony xperia z2 as it has no any sound speakers in the bottom side of the phone. plus no hole for belt on the right bottom side as well.
so my opinion it is some kind of fake phone and fake review.

How are you liking overall? Do you find the screen to be a good improvement over the Z1? When you hold it, do you find the size unwieldy at all?

Of course the are a lot of improvements.
- Snapdragon 801
- Stereo speakers
- IPS with LED backlight display
- 3 GB of RAM
- 3200 mAh battery

Thanks for the reply, but I know the specs. The questions I asked are purely based on hands on use.

Well I don't have it yet because it's not released. But I've held the Z1 many times and it was pretty comfortable in my hands. And Z2 is almost identical. Of course it's not as good as HTC One, but still good. And the size isn't a problem. Fits in the pocket perfectly and so on. Same thing with screen. Haven't seen it just yet in real life, but in all the videos and measurements it has great and accurate colours and good viewing angles so it can't be bad

At least much easier than the over-saturated AMOLED ones.

Insanity in your comment is a subjective term.

Do you read this guy Mark's comments ? He just trolls every samsung article and even in Z2 article which has nothing to do with the display he is trolling Amoleds.

Don't you see even the slightest hint of stupidity here ?!

Pic #11, it shows the battery is Li-Polymer. Why do I keep thinking it's Li-ion...

Are you trying to fool lol it clearly says li ion. Nice try though. Btw a poor choice in my book. Non removable batteries should be of Li-Po type imo. If anyone wants reasons google li-polymer vs. Li ion battery from android authority.

19. jaytai0106 (Posts: 1315; Member since: 30 Mar 2011)


I'm a fan of Li-Po as well. That's why HTC One M8 has pretty good battery life. Also, I did see the Li-Ion on the right but also and on the left side it says "Rechargeable Li-Polymer Battery" on the second line down. That's why I'm confused XD

24. Maryewww (Posts: 30; Member since: 16 Sep 2013)


The second line clearly states that it is a li-polymer rechargeable battery no fool here

It says Li-Po on the left with Li-Ion on the right side under the recycle logo. It must be Li-Po...

The only thing good from sammy is its AMOLED display. I'll give 9.8/10 score for AMOLED display and give 2/10 score for the stupid design, cheap plastic, laggy touchwiz & bloatwares

How much would a screen replacement cost? Hope its way cheeper then on the S3...

29. fireblade (Posts: 708; Member since: 27 Dec 2013)


as far as I know, IPS is cheaper than AMOLED. You can always find IPS display in $100 phone but you won't find AMOLED on cheap Samsung phones

It is amazing that sony is able to put a camera sensor that size into a 8.2mm smartphone without bulges.

Wow, sony is the king of craftmanship

I am hoping there will be a Xperia Z Ultra 2. All it really needs is a slightly better camera with a flash and stereo speakers.

guys, this is definitely not sony xperia z2 as it has no any sound speakers in the bottom side of the phone. plus no hole for belt on the right bottom side as well.
so my opinion it is some kind of fake phone and fake review.
