For sure, it is clearly tested that this phone is NOT waterproof. Don't be fouled by the advertisements. Sony tends to make smartphone by low quality material and a bit overpriced.
rate the SONY XPERIA ZR high on the VOTING RESULTS i.e Design:10 Features:10 Performance:10 to create a buzz and attract the GSMARENA TEAM for a review of this phone.
XPERIA ZR Is NOT A WATERPROOF PHONE
My xperia zr got problems while in the rain..on the second day of purchase.. its NOT WATER PROOF.. i have my phone spoilt, and sony customer support says that the warranty will not be honored if water gets inside. [try talking to the sony support centre and check before buying]
dont get fooled by the advertisements. I bought my phone from croma.. and let me tell you they will not respond to you properly even the next day or on the phone.. it took me 20 minutes to get the croma guy to get a complaint number.
basically i am stuck with an INR 30k phone. I don't know what will happen to mine.. xperia zr sucks and so does croma for giving me a defective phone.
I will keep this phone to remind me never to buy Sony again
SID S, 24 Jul 2013horrible handset
this handset is the biggest farce ever.
i've had this handset for under... morereply to SID S:
i also own this phone and i have tested it under water and it works perfectly under water. it must be your fault that you had not tightly covered the external ports and the back cover must also have been fixed loose. dont blame sony for your fault.
this handset is the biggest farce ever.
i've had this handset for under 3 weeks.
happened to use it in the rains for under 10 minutes (with ports and panels closed) water went inside the display, sensors, cameras (front and back).
sony refuses to get back to me, let alone offer a replacement.
this handset is either defective (d.o.a.) or the model itself is not water-proof as claimed by sony.
i heard sony had horrible after sales service. but this is ridiculous
avoid at all costs
someone shud plss giv a review on the wifi strength & connectivity of this device as well as the in built speakers and also front VGA camera experience
cyber expert, 22 Jul 2013My friend, it pretty much awesome, when you will make call, the voice is loud and clear like c... moreActually, the in-call volume is probably the only negative point for me about this phone. It just isn't loud enough. You can hear, but you cannot hear very well if the traffic is very noisy.
M. Z. Ansari, 24 Jul 2013Just ans me 1 qu. why we need to drown ZR in water forcefully? Sony r making water resistance ... moreYes, it does, in this case. This phone is specifically advertised by Sony as a phone which can make photos and film underwater. watch all the commercials about this phone. They all involve underwater photography. This is much more than just keeping it in the rain.
Pranav.r, 19 May 2013Friends don't complain about 8gb internal and VGA front can and thicker at 10.1mm.it is made t... moregood comment....
peoples want send 28000/- to 30000/- and want all features like Z, HTC One, S4.
practically it is not possible but peoples don't understand that...
and thy are comments TFT screen .. come-on sony... ETC....
I am already using this phone from last 1 month i think the phone is brilliant battery backup is good.. screen is great and i dont have any concerns about viewing angles becoz i always use from front. cammera is good .. phone is fast... good experience on games also.. i must say if you want fast phone in your budget this is the best choice.. it is better then Samsung galaxy S3, note before buy any samsung stupid phones jst hands on it. u will realize that. it is best....in all things.. under 28000/- price....
good work sony.....
San-D, 23 Jul 2013Either they are lying or else its there bad luck....ofcourse there will be some faulty xperia ... morepls tell me something about its music too.it is strong like sonyericsson older devices???
Just ans me 1 qu. why we need to drown ZR in water forcefully? Sony r making water resistance smartphone bcoz they provide us a smartphone to preserve from rain or any other situation in which we dropped our ph in water accidently but it dose't mean that we put it in water ourself.
Does this phone supports USB-on-the-go like xperia z? anyone had tried?
Need a review on the call quality and wifi strength of this device .....wanna buy it ASAP
Either they are lying or else its there bad luck....ofcourse there will be some faulty xperia zr in de market like 1 in 1000...de flaps are strong and air tight too....de screen works underwater and also de screen detects wet finger touches too....saw some comments abt flaps getting loose...the reason could be of opening the flaps wid pressure...never use pressure to open de flaps..as dat could cause de flap to bend causing de water to pour in...i just open de flaps lightly....so far so issues wid de device...no lags... No restarts....de speaker volume gets low when dipped in water but after 10 mins it ll be bac to normal...u ll get calls underwater too...;)
