Video shows Sony Xperia Z getting ego and body torn down
The Sony Xperia Z might be able to take a lot of abuse in the form of water or dust, but if you need to open it up for a repair or just because you have an issue with motherboards, it is not such a difficult chore. Rounded is a company that supplies spare parts and accessories world wide and has produced a video showing how to take apart Sony's flagship handset.

You will need some tools. Make sure you have a Phillips 1.5×45 screwdriver, a pincet, a hair drier and a suction cup. Also, a scraping tool of some sort is required. And the most important thing you need to accomplish this task is a steady hand and nerves of steel. No, you aren't dismantling a bomb so what's the worst that can happen?

The big problem is putting the phone back together. Remember, it does have that IP57 rating which means you will have to rebuild it to withstand water and dust. And by the way, if you have a part left over, you've made a mistake!
