Hello guys,

I'm from Brazil and here we still don't have the new Xperia Z, but I bought one in Europe and now I have a problem.

I really don't know how, but the glass on the back is cracked. It's on the inferior left corner.

The problem is that now I'm not able to use it without looking this crack.
Is there any place that has this glass??? I don't think it's easy to change it because it's waterproof, so I guess it's not that easy.


Sorry for my bad english, but I really need help of you guys.

Thank you

It's easy to change, the back part is just glued to the front part, there was a video that showed that you can remove the back part just by heating up the back part.
But I don't know where you can buy spare parts I think it will be expensive though.

Here is the disassemble video:

Here is a site where you can buy spare parts (Found in the description link of the video)

He might not, but I can imagine that it's annoying when you know that there is a crack on the back.
Same as when you do a test to see if there are dead pixels, you see some, but you only see them when you do the test, many people might be annoyed by the fact that there are dead pixels.

I'd understand if it was on the front, but this is on the back, and for some reason, when there's nothing wrong the front he feels he has to look at the back?

Hello,
The problem is that I own this phone less than a week.... so It botter me a LOT! It's really annoying when you buy something new, and it scratches, or break, or something like that.


I'm waiting for replacement parts......... hope they are available soon

    Glass of the phone is "piece of s_h_i_t". Annoying and "unlimited" finger prints makes this phone looks like $200 Chinese copy.
    Plus another problem with screen cracks like on Nexus 4.


    Great job keep it up :silly:

    Another Broken Class

    Yes same here, my back glass cracked...... Its was in my pocket then I pulled my phone out and put it on a leather couch, within seconds I heard a "Tick" I picked up my phone and the glass had cracked.

    Hot in the pocket and cold leather couch made this glass crack. also happened to my wifes phone 20mins ago when she put it on the kitchen bench.... that's what made me write this to this thread.

    Massive fault with this phone. Totally ruined the IP rating now which was the reason why I brought this phone. And there is no where selling replacements of glass yet.

    WTF man ? :mad:
    Read my post again.

    Did I said I don't like the phone?
    Did I said I don't like a design?
    Did I said I like plastic more ?


    The glass/quality of the phone is ****ty garbage. Because is getting dirty/dust so easy + hard to clean.
    Totally when the phone is dirty it looks like a Chinese copy.


    Regards.

    This could be a serious problem that could affect all devices, I always charge the phone at night, stays that way like 7-10 hours, I didn't thought that it could crack when the temperature varies. Not cool SONY!

    Wow, this topic got me worried a lot.
    After having a look at this video I tought it would be strong:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=o3yMw2L3tJA
    As that guy sure is smacking the phone all over the place without any damage left to the phone.

    I think your problem must have something to do with heat when charging.
    But that should not be a problem as this phone is also "snow proof".
    Taking it from the snow to inside should make it crack aswell then?

    Sure hope you guys get your phones fixed soon.


    Kind regards, Stefan.
