We show you what a real world Sony Xperia Z5 disassembly looks like. This is a real broken phone with a visibly smashed screen, has never been taken apart before and is not a highlight film in fast forward!

While in our case we are repairing a smashed screen this tutorial could be used for many purposes including rear glass replacement, battery replacement, camera replacement, and much more.

Sadly your Xperia Z5 will not be waterproof anymore after this repair.

    i have replaced my lcd module in my z5, it starts and works proper, but the touch functionality is still not working. do you know which cable or part of the phone is responsibel for the touch ?

  2. I thank you for the best tutorial out there. I finally got this thing working after being turned down by multiple repair shops. One question though: My battery life is noticeably reduced, this phone is renowned for its long life now I'm lucky to get a day out it, did I improperly reconnect it?
