This is our submission to the Electronics Online Challenge sponsored by Texas Instruments. We are Team 82855T of St. Theresa of Lisieux C.H.S., a high school in Ontario. We disassembled an old ZTE V5 U9180 smartphone from 2014 and analyzed all the ICs that we could identify. We faced some difficulty finding datasheets for some parts due to obsolescence, but information from other sources proved valuable as well. We learned a great deal about the various parts in a smartphone and their purpose.
