The Xperia Z4 features a pair of notches that flank the display, and seem good candidates for prying. We used them as our point of entry, however, the glass soon shattered.
The display could likely be removed safely if a guide had been provided. If we tried again, we might also be able to remove it safely with more heat and caution. That said, the front panel is much more delicate than necessary.
After extended prying, the device is opened, a simple press fit connector secures the fused display assembly to the board.
