Introdução

This guide will show you how to remove the back camera from your Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. The back camera will need to be replaced if it is cracked or damaged. A heat gun or hairdryer is needed to open the back panel, which can become hot and potentially damage the phone. Additionally, a spudger is needed to lift the camera from the phone.

How do you remove it? (Seems obvious but write for any audience, and say how to do things instead of just what to do)

Use a hair dryer to heat each corner of the phone.
  • Use a hair dryer to heat each corner of the phone.

  • Alternate heating each corner for a minute to loosen the adhesive binding the back cover to the phone.

  • Don't heat one area for too long; the phone may get damaged from overheating.

Consider saying “loosen” instead of “soften” so that steps 2 and 3 use the same terms. Somebody may not know that heating the glue will loosen it, and so they will be confused reading “once the adhesive is loosened” in step 3.

Tiffany Dang - Responder

“to take off piece” change to take off the piece? Or even be specific, “pull with your hands to remove the module.”
