Zenodroid, 22 Feb 2017And their next video will be : don't swim with the phone, bc we don't cover water damage. Just... moreSony doesn't just recommend using it underwater, but it doesn't mean it can't do it because it can, even more than other non-waterproof Sony phones (except those truly rigged ones).
Samsung commands us to not go beyond the IP rating.
Apple only claims it to survive underwater. Nothing more, nothing less. Typical Apple.
None of them said you can't use them underwater. The reason why I wanted to buy a waterproof device is because I want to impress my friends that I dropped my phone in the toilet and the phone is still 100% flawless
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2017Abusing????????? Seriously? You mean they started using itNo i mean people started thinking that Xperias can take on water immersion for extended periods of time or even survive a shallow dive..ip ratings are resists, not waterproofing
If they're able to marry the tech of trh G5, and the design of the G2-G4, I think we're gonna have something special here.
AnonD-93439, 22 Feb 2017why everyone hated G5 so much? why no one talks about it anymore?Maybe they are jealous...
The G6 is getting interesting... We'll see if they could make up for the 821. Price it right.

I think LG will have a winner with this one. Not because of the water and dust resistance, but the battery will have quite a good size for a flagship this small (3200+ mAh) and I suspect it will include a built-in polycarbonate screen protector, like the Moto X Force, which would be a great thing (even if not, the perfectly flat screen will be suitable for edge-to-edge screen protectors). That's because their released "survey" tells a lot about cracked screens, etc. So they have something in store about the screen durability, besides the Gorilla Glass thing.
So it will probably be a bullet-proof phone regarding durability. It remains to be seen whether the camera is improved (the G5 really is no match for the S7's camera) and whether the Snapdragon 821 will be optimized enough to provide good battery life, given that the 821 is a 14nm part while the upcoming 835 is a 10nm part.
AnonD-93439, 22 Feb 2017why everyone hated G5 so much? why no one talks about it anymore?Hold one in your hand at a store and you will se why. Small battery, weirdly curved screen with very thin glass, plastic feel, ugly design, large bezels...should I continue ?
why everyone hated G5 so much? why no one talks about it anymore?
And their next video will be : don't swim with the phone, bc we don't cover water damage. Just like sony/sammy and apple did.
Sony used to do ads like this.. Then ppl started abusing the water resistance.. And sony got rid of water resistance as a feature, even though the phones are technically still water resistant
Aspros, 22 Feb 2017Its really good that they have finally discovered water resistance and also jumped the IP wago... moreWell considering with either the G4 and or the g5 the made a number of specific bold face lies on things especially like the display I wouldn't expect modesty with something like this
Its really good that they have finally discovered water resistance and also jumped the IP wagon, but they should be modest about it, they came after Sony, Samsung and Even Apple! Its not like they have invented the next best thing. Only HTC and the Chinese are behind them...
