i dont care what it looks like i think the biggest let down about this device is that they upgraded the s4 to a s/d 800 not long ago
there were so many variants it was really impossible for us to really tell the difference
sadly i think this phone may flop big time and it does not deserve to
hawraman, 03 Mar 2014Sony never said xperia z,is waterproof But said its water resistant,go and check Sony siteLOL.
And Sony still had a claimed that XZ can be submerged for a certain maximum time, and certain depth.
In Xperia Z, they had this MISLEADING picture of the XZ plunging into water:
The picture above should be the picture for the Z2, but instead they used this one:
LOL. Sony again has a disclaimer:
"In compliance with IP55 and IP58, Xperia Z2 is protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. Provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed, the phone is (i) protected against low pressure jets of water from all practicable directions in compliance with IP 55; and/or (ii) can be kept under 1.50 metres of fresh water for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP58"
So, it's low pressure of water like faucet running water, and can can only take 1.5 atmosphere pressure (1.5m) of water, and only up to 30 minutes.
So Sony or any other company shouldn't be claiming or misleading that their products are "waterproof" or giving out pictures of being dunked into water.
The water resistance is there against rain, accidental drop to a wet ground, and not meant to be abused by silly acts like putting it in beer or an aquarium just to see if it survives. Only noobs do that.

sukh1, 03 Mar 2014check ip rating first.
Check this site first:
[deleted post]LOL! You check it for yourself:
"...Only in freshwater up to 1.5 m for 30 minutes."
"...can be kept under 1.50 metres of fresh water for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP58"
Not "unlimited time(continuous time)" as you claimed!
You are the one who's wrong, not GSMArena.
Now who has scattered informations?
hawraman, 03 Mar 2014No,you should use an independent web site which is only about ip rating,since most webs imitat... more"...Only in freshwater up to 1.5 m for 30 minutes"
That is from the Sony Global web pages for Xperia Z2:
Say all the hell you want to say, water resistance, fire resistance, OIS, 100gb RAM, gold design. We love Sammy, stop hating. Its not compulsory you must say something, if you feel xperia Z2 will give you everything you want, go for it and if it's Htc M8 teh go for it, it's your choice, stop all this useless noise. Nobody need you to comment here. Go for what you want and stop having headache for another person's problem. If S5 is not up to what you want then go for your expensive icrap, xperia or Htc whatever and stop making noise here clowns!
