  • The Asus Zenfone 6.

  • You might not remember the name, but you'll definitely remember the flip up camera.

  • It's the one that swivels out of the phone like some kind R2D2 accessory.

  • We've done the durability test and we know the camera hinge is secure and the motor is

  • rated for 100,000 flips.

  • But in order to see how it's all put together and learn how it works, we're going to have

  • to review it from the inside.

  • It's time to teardown the Zenfone 6.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • The Zenfone 6 is built like most other glass and metal smart phones with a large glass

  • panel on the back held on with adhesive.

  • There's no water resistance rating on the Zenfone 6, so I assumed it would be easier

  • to take apart, but I was wrong.

  • The adhesive holding the thing together is incredibly goopy and strong, and really hard

  • to slice through.

  • But I eventually managed to make it happen, and I removed the glass.

  • There is one long fingerprint scanner ribbon attaching the back panel to the phone still.

  • I'll pop off that fingerprint scanner from the glass and set it off to the side.

  • You'll also want to watch out for the fragile Google Assistant ribbon cable that's super

  • close to the edge of the phone.

  • I went ahead and accidentally on purpose sliced mine in half as an example of what not to

  • do and what you should avoid.

  • The phone should still work though, even if I did kill the assistant.

  • There are 7 Philips head screws holding down the black plastic plate, then I can unsnap

  • the fingerprint scanner ribbon and lift off those plastics.

  • The NFC coil comes off as well.

  • I thought at first this might make a cool looking transparent phone, but then I changed

  • my mind, mostly because the majority of the flippy camera is hidden underneath the metal

  • camera housing and would not be visible in a clear phone.

  • Let's take a closer look.

  • I'll unplug the battery from the motherboard for safety since we do want this phone to

  • turn on again someday.

  • And I'll grab the singular battery pull tab down here at the bottom.

  • But then, without even pulling, the battery falls away from the phone basically all on

  • it's own.

  • That's a pleasant flaw in the assembly process for me.

  • Thumbs up for an accidentally too easy battery removal.

  • The Zenfone 6 has a massive 5000 milliamp hour battery, which is twice the capacity

  • of the iPhone XS.

  • You can see the two pretty worthless battery adhesive strips down here pretending to do

  • their jobs.

  • I'll unclip the two extension ribbons like little Legos, then the metal camera housing

  • up here at the top is held in place by 4 more screws.

  • Two additional screws already got removed with the back plastics.

  • Once those are out, I can gently lift away part of the metal structure from around the

  • top of the camera and I can slide the little edge of the bracket out from underneath the

  • motherboard.

  • Even with that support bracket now gone, the camera is still solidly in position.

  • We can see a bit more of the motor and gear as the camera flips back and forth.

  • No long stepper motor shaft this time around like we've seen in some of the pop up camera

  • phones.

  • The Zenfone 6 has just one gear going straight from the motor to the camera.

  • The camera control ribbon connector is also very different.

  • It's not like the little Lego style this time around.

  • I'll remove the one motherboard screw and disconnect the 3 additional ribbon cables,

  • and two more wire cables, and then lift the motherboard out and away from the frame, revealing

  • yet another motherboard like some kind of high tech Oreo cookie with pink frosting inside.

  • There are two different motherboards.

  • I'm not sure what the overall goal with that thermal paste is though.

  • Each motherboard is heating up and transferring the heat right back into the other motherboard.

  • I'm no expert, but using functional motherboards as heat sinks seems counter intuitive.

  • There are two more screws holding down that flippy metal camera unit bringing the total

  • up to 8 screws.

  • Then I'll detach another one of those strange connectors, and after a bit of shimmying and

  • unplugging the motor connector, the whole camera contraption can come out of the Zenfone

  • 6.

  • It looks like these odd connectors can be unplugged, but the appear to be a bit more

  • fragile and require more finesse.

  • Not a huge fan.

  • Either way, the camera is out now and we can get a close up look at the attached motor.

  • Positioned off to the side, it has a direct connection with the hinge of the camera.

  • The brackets that secure the camera require 8 different screws, which I imagine is what

  • kept the camera so structurally solid during my durability test.

  • Let's take a quick look at the bottom motherboard.

  • The dual SIM and SD card slot is on the lower motherboard, with a circular white water damage

  • indicator next to the opening.

  • The loudspeaker is down at the bottom of the phone and has 6 screws holding it in place

  • over the lower electronics.

  • And once it's removed we see another water damage indicator on top of the headphone jack.

  • There is one screw holding down the charging port board, along with one more large Lego

  • style ribbon connector.

  • Then the charging port can lift up and out of the phone.

  • The USB-C charging port does have a black rubber ring around the tip to help cushion

  • the port and provide some water resistance, but as a whole, the phone is not water resistant

  • at all.

  • The front screen is permanently glued to the metal housing like we've seen in a lot of

  • other glass and metal phones.

  • It can be replaced, it's just difficult.

  • It's time we get everything situated back inside of the Zenfone 6 so I can clean up

  • the mess I made with all the internal guts spread out everywhere on my desk.

  • Before putting the motherboard sandwich back together, I do need to clip in the strange

  • camera cables that Asus is using.

  • Still not a huge fan.

  • They don't slide in easily like the Lego style ribbons, and it makes the whole repair much

  • more difficult.

  • Finally, after hopefully getting it clicked in, I can put the Oreo motherboard halves

  • together with the strawberry frosting in the middle.

  • Then I'll get the black camera cable plugged in, along with all the other more normal Lego

  • style connectors for the top motherboard.

  • The metal camera bracket gets secured onto the camera housing with it's 4 remaining screws

  • holding it in place.

  • Then the battery can get set into the phone and plugged in, along with the fingerprint

  • scanner and back plastics.

  • The fingerprint scanner gets placed directly back into the rear glass panel, and I can

  • set the whole thing back down onto the phone.

  • And luckily everything still turns on.

  • Overall I'm a fan of the Zenfone 6.

  • I like seeing phones do new and unique stuff.

  • Yeah, the motherboard sandwich is kind of strange.

  • We should watch that for overheating, but the internal camera and bracket both look

  • pretty solid.

  • I'm not a fan of those camera connectors though, as it appears my camera is malfunctioning

  • at the moment, but at least the phone itself still works.

  • You win some, you lose some.

  • It was still worth it to see the insides.

  • Would you rather have a phone with a flip up camera, or a pop up camera?

  • Let me know down in the comments.

  • Come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter.

  • And thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.
