Here in Europe the Sony Xperia Z1 shipped with a polished polycarbonate rear panel, not the glass panel found in some versions worldwide.
This replacement is manufactured from the same material as those found in the European version and is a touch, scratch resistant polished polycarbonate.
Original water repellent adhesive is included and already fitted on the battery cover, to fit you will simply need to remove your old cover, peel and stick the new cover on.
We do also stock the glass versions of the Z1 compact rear if preferred.
Part: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact rear cover
Manufacturer: After-market, made to original specification
Warranty: 12 Months
Compatibility: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact
When fitting the new rear panel please take the following into consideration:
If your old rear is hard to remove try using a hair-dryer to soften the old adhesive
Ensure you have removed your old NFC antenna from your old rear, this is currently held on using a mild adhesive
Ensure that all old glass and adhesive residue is completely removed from the phones chassis, if needed you can use IPA cleaner or any alcohol based solution (even nail varnish remover!)
Once the new rear has been fitted we recommend using clamps to hold the rear in place overnight to ensure the new adhesive bonds OK, if clamps are not available a heavy book that can place even pressure on the rear will also work fine
