We don’t really know what happened to Sony with its Xperia Z4 (in Japan) – or Xperia Z3+ in other markets – and why they suddenly took a low profile when their past flagships, particularly the Xperia Z3, was deemed as one of, if not THE best smartphone around a year before. We hope Sony bounces back from this so-so effort this year. But in case you want to see the Sony Xperia Z4 being torn down in a video, this is the place to be.

There have been numerous teardown articles of Sony’s current top Xperia device, and we’ve featured some of those here. But if you want to get a closer look, and have everything in moving images, then check out the video below.

Technicians and first time DIY-ers might benefit from this teardown video, especially if you haven’t tried to fix or open up a high-end smartphone before. The Xperia Z4 is as high-end as they come, so check out this video if you’re not feeling too confident about your teardown attempt.

The Sony Xperia Z4/Z3+ came out with the first iteration of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, which – whether they admit it or not – has a lot of overheating issues. The overheating thereby causes the phone’s software to start throttling the processor’s speed so that it won’t damage the chip. That comes with a huge dip in performance as well. Some modders have actually taken to using regular kitchen foil to fix the issue.
