If you already know how to test waterproofing without placing your device in the testing waters, you can skip this. This is for the ones who aren't acquainted with the method yet.
You can actually test your device's waterproofing without dipping it in the water. You need: (1) Pressure sensor. (2) Working and tight flaps.
(1) You need to get a program that shows the live values on the pressure sensor. Other than accessing it from the call menu, you can use the app CPU-Z.
(2) Make sure you are able to view the live values on the pressure sensor.
(3) Open a/the flap/flaps. Press on the screen. If the pressure doesn't rise, well and good. It shouldn't rise.
(4) Close the flaps tightly. Press on the screen. If the pressure rises significantly (at least 8 numbers) and drops while you are still pressing it, well and good again. It should rise and drop.
(5)Do a number of pressure tests with the flaps closed just to see if the pressure really rises on some amount.
If you passed (3) and (4), then your device should be waterproof.
I did this on my Z2 though it can't last for long underwater because of the loose flaps. Have to hold them tightly in place just to be safe.
FOR, 14 Feb 2015Guys plz tell me which is the best for me between xperia z2 and s5....plz post ur opinionHey, i used both. screen wise s5 is better, whites are white and white in z2 is a bit of greyish yellow (watch the youtube video for the comparison of both screen)..
also another thing is s5 uses the latest tech on camera which is they call ISOCELL sensor, watch the video on youtube for camera comparison. it even better than note 4. s5 is the only smartphone that uses isocell, note 4 uses CMOS sensor from sony.
the only disadvantage of s5 is the front camera and the build quality.. z2 is made up of metal while s5 is pure plastic..
FOR, 14 Feb 2015Guys plz tell me which is the best for me between xperia z2 and s5....plz post ur opinionBoth Z2 and S5 are beasts but Z2 has advantage on following points only
I will never say that it is better than S5 because S5 has a lot of sensors.. So it depends on you which feature YOU want..
do not buy this phone it is not waterproof!! it got water damaged by RAIN and sony refused to replace it!! awful experience

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2015Please No hardly tech comp comparison to Sony Z2! But the fact is that it has and runs 5.0.1 smoothly. Even 4.4.4 in xperia does not have art runtime option.
Can someone please tell me when the handset will receive lolipop update in India.

georgeasi99, 12 Feb 2015Which one do you think is best? Sony xperia z2 or motorola moto x 2014? Once you get your hands on Z2 you won't like any other phone.

vikkygame, 12 Feb 2015Dear if you run asphalt 8 on any other smartphone then it will also gets hot same like xperia ... moreThanks for your information! I admit that Asphalt 8 is a very big and it causes heat to all types of smartphones but the thing is when my phone ran 4.4.2 android I also installed this game on my phone. I noticed that I played it for about 30mns and my phone was actually not hot as it is right now and it consumed only about 4-5% of the battery. Right now, it consumes as much as 5% for only 5-10mns of playing time. Really want to go back to 4.4.2 android but let's see how android lollipop can change the things. Anw, hope it comes out at around the end of feb, but i heard it may come out in the beginning march.
