Another thread about this?

Not commenintg about the white paper, but I'm not sure what you think those images & vid actually prove. All I see is 1 photo of the inside of the backplate, and 2 seconds of someone removing one. They confirm that the backplate is thin, and has layers. What does this tell us about the material of the outside layer? Until someone actually tests it or Sony fesses up: nothing.

In the Dutch Xperia Care chat they told me it was plastic. I'm currently trying to get in the US chat for more information about the white paper edits and the camera flash bleed issue's, but I can tell you that the back is plastic.

And guys, I'm sorry for the double threads. I thought it was extra worth mentioning especially when the Japanese Z1f does have a glass back while the rest of the world gets ripped off.

These repetitive threads about already well-identified issues are getting pretty annoying.

There's a review at The Telegraph where they state it has Dragontail glass on both front and back....

If so then Dragontail is sh*t for stopping scratches.
