Pioneer K88L tear-down

by Frank Tu 1

The Pioneer K88L phone, which costs 1799 RMB (293.04 USD), is one of the few 5-mode/13-frequency devices to use a processor from MediaTek. It also comes with an NFC function and Dolby Audio. It sports a 5.5-inch HD display screen, an octa-core processor, and 13mp camera.

 

Having said that, let us take a look at what this phone is made of. Behold! The Pioneer K88L tear-down!

This phone boasts a unibody design and you will need a tool to unscrew the rear case. Furthermore, the rear case and the phone’s body by a strong glue that makes it hard to separate them.

On the rear-case is a thermal graphite sheet which can temper the phone’s battery heat.

The motherboard is located at the upper half of the phone where the battery takes up the most space.

Do you like to take nice scenic shots? Use the Pioneer K88L’s 13mp rear-facing wide angle camera (left). If you are vain and like to take selfies, use the 5mp front-facing camera (right).

Overall, just as you would expect from a Chinese cellphone company, Pioneer never forgets to add NFC chips and many others as well as producing such a sturdy phone.
