After the motherboard removed, the metal roll cage is exposed, the corresponding position of the motherboard is also affixed with copper sheet, but unfortunately the chip did not apply thermal grease, the machine’s overall thermal design is more general.
Next, I heat the screen through the hot air gun, and then use the same way to dismantle the screen module, this time you can see the corresponding position of the fuselage posted a large area of graphite thermal paste.
The light distance sensor is under the black apron.
At the corresponding position of the screen, we also see the hole of the light sensor. And we found that the screen really dug out from the middle, but did not affect the surrounding pixels display, and had to admire Sharp’s technology.
We find that the smartphone’s screen module hasn’t arranged the driver IC on ribbon cable, which means that screen module need to debug together with the smartphone’s fuselage in the design phase. But ordinary manufacturers can’t do it.
In general, Sharp AQUOS S2 internal workmanship is very good, we see the engineers cleverly arrangements for the handset, the light distance sensor and the front camera, so that they can in a limited space to complete their mission, you Know that this is a full-screen mobile phone has been facing one of the most core design problems, and the phone’s internal structure is very compact, the connectors fixed enough solid, corner thickened can resist strong impact. If there is nothing worthy of improvement, I believe that if the chip uses thermal grease to help heat dissipation, and in the open area to enhance the sealing design will enable this phone’s workmanship rise to a new level.
