One observation is that the components that were very much soldered together and hard to replace on the Z3 are now pretty easy to remove and repair, which is good news for home-DIY’ers. Everything else is pretty much as you’d expect, with the Snapdragon 810 processor taking pride of place, despite the overheating issues.
