TheNeighbor, 03 Mar 2014Sheesh! "... the Xperia Z2 can be dunked in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1... moreNo,you should use an independent web site which is only about ip rating,since most webs imitate gsmarena,and 90% are based and full of errors,,and Sony said its waterproof too.
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..

Just open your eyes and look around.I'm using it for one week and there's really nothing I wanna ask extra.
"... the Xperia Z2 can be dunked in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5 metre, Sony claims, due to dust-resistant and waterproof IP55 and IP58 certification."
AnonD-237389, 03 Mar 2014It's all about ip58 and ip67, Z2 has ip58,which mean it can withstand water immersion Below o... moreSoo, what are you think about human body. It is waterproof or water resistant?
Actually, s5 is the ugliset phone from the s2 and note 2.the note 3 looks well, but this phone (s5) is noting spectacular and it's just ugly.i'm a tech fan and i'dissapointed...

How about downloading torrents via LTE? I average some 7GB of tv and full HD movies downloads on heavy days.
How about listening to internet music?
Watching those videos.
How about getting and sending Whatsup messages?
Wifi Hotspot for my PC.
Taking notes with S Notes.
Drawing with Sketchbook Pro.
Taking GIF pictures.
Man, I hardly make calls or SMS. I said accumulated, not dead straight on screen, and mixed use. I average 10 to 12 hours from 100% till it goes to 1 to 5%. I then change to a fresh battery in the afternoon. you can never say that with an Xperia premium. My Samsung stays wireless all day. It takes just above a minute to change a battery.
I charge the spent battery on a desktop battery cradle charger, plug in the Note 3 on a timer plug for 3 hours.

"can't differentiate between looks of samsung phones"
from galaxy star to galaxy s5 all have same design and even same plastic material used in low end to high end flagship..lolzzzzzz
i know you samsung fans are very disappointed but not showing....as all the rumors of metal body,64 bit chipset, QHD display, eye scanner were fake....
and samsung announced a bullshit this year.....lollllll
TheNeighbor, 03 Mar 2014Really? Self created reasons? So, Sony is ABSOLUTELY correct in having their most expensive de... moreIt depends on wha you call heavy use. What is heavy use for you might not be for others. Nonetheless, there's no phone I'll use heavily and it wont need topping up everyday. Which phone do you use anyways? Can you chat online with your phone for upto 7 consecutive hours non stop? Unless you use Lenovo p780 you probably cant do that with any other phone
AnonD-188202, 03 Mar 2014same as z2 not water proof only water resitantZ2 has ip58 rating means it can be dipped in water for an unlimited time and that's called waterproof.
while s5 can only go upto 1 m depth for just 30 minutes.and that's called water resitant.
is it clear now?
Z2 is waterproof and s5 is water resistant.
I really like samsung galaxy S5 it's an excellent smartphone and its features are wonderfull......♡♥
