Xperia Z5 Disassembly GuideThe folks over at iFixit have provided a handy teardown guide for the Sony Xperia Z5. To be clear, the guide is a member-contributed one, rather than from iFixit staff but it very clearly shows the step-by-step process involved in taking apart your Xperia Z5. If you have seen previous disassembly guides for the Xperia Z series, then you will know that removing the back cover involves heating the rear to soften the glue and using a suction cup to prise open the cover.

The teardown confirms the dual heat pipes used in the Xperia Z5. There is also an accompanying video that goes through screen replacement as well as how to fix the charging port and replace battery. Check the full guide at the source link below.

    Is there a dedicated audio chip?

  • David van der Zande

    Not any more. Uses Snapdragon built-in DSP.

    There has to be one in order to replace the previous NXP (DAC+AMP) chip. I also think all Zs came with Qcom DSP.

    For reference if anyone follows a tear down of a xperia product, waterproof is as good as gone. I am not saying it is 100% the case, but opening the case will cause the isolation to not be in place.

    this proved sony is freaking bullshit to make those huge bezels
    and stop sayin that the top and bottom bezels are big because the dual front-facing speakers, nonsense!

    Pay attention to 3.19 (first video) & the picture at the bottom. Having two speakers is going to need some bezel.
