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.

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.

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.

I was honestly expecting the Samsung Galaxy S5 to be more repairable

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

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

Neatly done Sony! Z2 looks like a worthy buy for 2014 :) Always was a Sammy owner, now its time for a switch.

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

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.

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

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...

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

Insanity in your comment is a subjective term.

saying something is subjective can be pretty subjective tbh.
