Need Fix for Xperia Z3 Cracked Back Cover

I bought Xperia Z3 2 weeks back. My Back cover got cracked. But the Camera Lens & Display are in Intact.

While contacting Sony Service center, they are asking for 50% of Phone cost for replacement.

I need your help guys. Is there any fixes for back cover replacement.

Thanks & Regards

Same issue cracked back got it out off my loose fitting pocket

Same problem, put my Z3 in my pocket one morning, got into work and the glass at the back had a hairline crack - it was only a month old. Sony services tells me it's a damage caused by impact or pressure - I've never had a problem carrying any other smartphone in my pocket. This is only down to poor choice of material and an inferior build quality. It's been a consistent problem since the first Xperia Z, so why the keep manufacturing it with the easily cracked glass is beyond me - I'm never buying Sony again. Worst smartphone ever, and they call it a flagship... you can't even use it without reinforcing it with covers and $@$*.

It's cheaper if you can DIY repair and you can get Xperia Z3 replacement parts here http://www.witrigs.com/replacement-parts...

But the disadvantage is that you can't ensure the phone still waterproof. So i think the reason why cost so much to Sony Service center is that they can give you the promise that your phone still be waterproof.

So you need to make a decision.

you can fix it, ensure it, then replace it for "software" issue (no deductible) T mobile does that. so look into that.

You can take it to a Sony centre, if you have one locally. They charge £25 for the repair and it doesn't effect your warranty. Much cheaper than sending it to them for the repair, and safer than doing it yourself.

that's utter bullshit then, that's $170 for labor n $10 for parts/p&p. A back glass costs less that $10 and can be bought on amazon/prime next day delivery (mines coming tomorrow.) Front cover on the other hand is another matter due tot he LCD being attached, and i'm sending my phone to get repaired the second i replace the back. I want my phone to be IP6 again, but every time it overheats cos of poor OS compatibility after lollipop update the adhesive isn't keeping the screen on the device.

honest answer,

You can DIY for less than a tenner from amazon.

the replacement glass back just needs to be removed using heat then clean with alcohol based wipes cue tips /nail varnish remover. insure the contact area of the device is clean and dry before you apply the new back cover. Covers are up on sale for less than 10 pounds from amazon and you can replace it with the color of choice etc. as it won't revoke your warranty to replace it yourself as long as none of the Electronics are removed or seals on them broke (the battery has a a seal on the bottom right you should avoid pulling that tab.

I cracked my screen today and the screen doesn't work. I can't do anything but I can still see my display , it's just messed up. I looked up how to replace it and it seems easy I can definitely apply the DIY method but will it even work ? Is that all my phone needs if I cracked the screen? Just a replacement ? Will my display screen be fixed and will the touch sensors work again?

I don't want to pay the deductible with T-Mobile because this would be the 5th time I would have to replace a Sony phone.. I've had all the xperias in the past and I'm sick of this. Is it possible for me to fix it on my own? Will my display work again with normal touch function and everything?

The Sony xperia m5 has a plastic back instead of aluminium or metal. The reduced build quality means a better price point but at a loss of toughness. My M5 was less than 30 days old when a split appeared on the rear of the phone. This is unacceptable particularly since it was sold as a waterproof phone. Both Sony and my telco provider were unhelpful saying such damage is not covered under warranty. I would ask what does their warranty actually cover if these sorts of problems are left to the consumer to work out? It's a design fault of the phone and they don't want to deal with it. This is the last time I will buy a Sony make phone. I had to buy a temporary replacement budget phone and it only cost me $30. It is a full LCD 4inch smartphone and it works fine. What a joke these so called flagships have let themselves become. My xperia was.. $600
