Some of us carry our phones around with us all day long and forget it's still sitting in the top shirt pocket , have you ever bent over to lift the seat up and seen your phone going for the swan dive ?
I can tell you accidents happen
very easily .
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2017No. People used it. If course some people abused it That happens with any tech. But when p... moreyeah but with sony they were advertising the waterresist as a key feature..and they couldnt keep replacing any and all phones that may have been damaged by foolishness from the user's part..so they revised it..unofficially all xperias still have some amount of water resist
viveksubhash, 22 Feb 2017No i mean people started thinking that Xperias can take on water immersion for extended period... moreNo. People used it. If course some people abused it
That happens with any tech.
But when people actually put it under water and the water tightness fails they don't want to pay
This waterproofing thing is an old technology from SONY,what if SONY wanted to bring about some new technology, it's pitty that SONY is not eager to show us some technology in it's mobile division
[deleted post]Even the midrange Xperia go was waterproof, my friend has the videos by Xperia go in the pool,the video can be sent to any of you upon request
[deleted post]GSMarena, please block users, IDs or IP addresses that posts only betrayed comments.
I am from Azerbaijan. Not an active user who posts comments. But I follow GSMarena and its comment section for more than 7 years. Continuously! Unfortunately, in recent months I found too many betrayed people who posts negative comments against LG without a reason. For example, LG teases its water&dust proof feature, and some betrayed person suddenly comments on asymmetry of top and bottom bezels. Just why? Bezels are not the topic, man? or someone hates to non-removable batteries. You might not like it, but you are not obliged to comment on it if it is not topic of the shared news that you are commenting on.
My observations show that most of such propaganda is against LG and most of those propagandas are financing by Samsung.
I am not a fanboy of LG. I donÂ’t care profit of its shareholders. All I need is value that I get in exchange of the hardly earned money. I donÂ’t understand fanboys at all. But most of haters are not fanboys of other companies. They are betrayed people who get dirty money in exchange of unfair comments. People donÂ’t sell your personality. Be fair man!
Moreover, as I user of various smartphones over last 8 years. I thing LGÂ’s nexus models were king! LG G series were way better than all other smartphones. SamsungÂ’s best value and quality model was S3mini. Thereafter, no any Samsung model was good enough. Sony is absolutely unreliable. Apple is just someone who makes you to pay their glamour bills. So why I should let apple to charge me so high prices for worse phones? HTCÂ’s pricing policy is not good either but ONE series are way better than all Samsung&Apple models all the time. 900+ LumiaÂ’s were great but it is also matter of taste. Thanks GSMarena for professionalism for the years. Keep it up and block betrayed users and comments please! Cheers!
Davood57, 22 Feb 2017This is What SONY offered four years ago,bring something New not some stolen technology Check Motorola defy please that was launched like 7 odd years ago
Davood57, 22 Feb 2017This is What SONY offered four years ago,bring something New not some stolen technology Yeah not stolen. Google Nokia 5500 sport then return. It's like a decade old now

Why would you want to prove waterproofing by dropping it in a toilet?!
Why not do it in a clean water environment like a glasstable of water or the sink?! This thing has to be used next to your face / mouth!
BTW - is it me or does that G6 part of the logo look a bit naff and dated? Kinda like something from a cheap kid's game logo...
Potentially awesome phone though - kudos LG.
JordanBaby, 22 Feb 2017Sony doesn't just recommend using it underwater, but it doesn't mean it can't do it because it... moreBut why take phone to toilet in first place?. Even my sister's Moto g3 survived a dunk in water tho it's ipx7 rated btw
LynX-007, 22 Feb 2017why everyone hated G5 so much? why no one talks about it anymore?Coz it looked ugly (unlike v20) , it's USP was a half as*ed effort and wasn't implemented properly, it's battery life was terrible and it had really huge bezels. also, waterproofing.
Zenodroid, 22 Feb 2017And their next video will be : don't swim with the phone, bc we don't cover water damage. Just... moreI also can't get what is so important about going with your phone underwater. It's just for the peace of mind. Better to have it than not.
