AnonD-237389, 03 Mar 2014No,you should use an independent web site which is only about ip rating,since most webs imitat... moreThe last number for the Ingress Protection pertains to moisture which corresponds:
7.Protected against temporary immersion.
8.Protected against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure.
So in other words:
IP 67 Enclosures - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against immersion.
IP 68 Enclosures - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against complete, continuous submersion in water.
Except both brands enclosed with a limited time of 30 minutes, and 1.5m under water depth only. Sony even issues an IP55 rating for a lower rated model?
Even Sony shouldn't be telling everyone that it's waterproof. It's really confusing and letting people abuse the IP by dunking their phones in water. Like this particular Xperia Z lost its "waterproof" seal on the side and got bubbles coming out:

Anonymous, 03 Mar 2014Soo, what are you think about human body. It is waterproof or water resistant? Neither of them.

This is Xperia Z1 procedures and reports for IP58 certified:
[deleted post]oh plis.. so what Z2 can swim underwater unlimited time.. u want to swim with your phone? lol
but look at s5.. total dust protection, even at home you will encounter with dust. thats what make dust protection more useful rather than water resist because u will encounter with dust ANYWHERE you go.
wish it had better design. also hope battery life is good. i hoped it started from 32 gb and no 16 gb version and good if it had 128 gb version. also 4.3-4.7 inch version. otherwise good phone and hope sammy dont make 20 s5 versions. maximum 4.
Tcool, 03 Mar 2014OMG! Do you believe these lies? When did Xperia Z2 became waterproof?He says it, because you can put it in deeper water than 1 meter, but he forgot to say that after 30 minutes it is game over for the Z2 too! :D
i'm not sure about this, why all people always bad mouth of this phone.
1. If samsung really want, they can make all your dream come true. U want Octa core 3.0Ghz Procie or even Hexa core, 4GB RAM, 30MP camera, QHD, 3000mAh battery, metal casing, etc.. They can make it and be the king of all smartphone, they have technology for it.
But if Samsung make it, who wants to buy it?? u want buy it for bucks of money like 1500-2000 Euro for it?? Sure then buy it.. and come with gold coating for even premium build cost around 3000 Euro?? buy loh..
2. If samsung make even further, what about next gen phone? S6, S7, S8 and so on.. With one ultimate smartphone, there is no reason for samsung to release another phone since this is the ultimate phone.
3. what samsung want to make like apple does. They want to solve about 3 reason anyone want to upgrade their phone :
- Longer battery life (with 2800mAh and ultra saving mode)
- Better procie (Quad 2.5 Ghz > i think fairly enough)
- Better camera and video (16MP, HDR and 4K UHD recording)
- Better functionality (with fitness apps and so on)
for water ressist or not.. who care. like you want to swim with your phone..
RAM usage depends on OS, background apps and UI (if standby mode) > samsung already stated to use it anyway, if RAM not enough then phone itself will shut down another apps which no longer used.
if you want hi-tech phone then buy another brand, and not samsung.. samsung already take apple step to make useful phone not some hi-tech smartphone just to show off but cant do anything other than sms, phone call, chatting, browsing, take a photo/video, listen music where other phones can do..
