Firt off all..there is no such thing as water proof..only water resistant..if you all read the listed features it says "dust proof and WATER RESISTANT"..second a master piece can also be made by a cheap plstic as long as it is used properly with excellence..sony's back cover is made up of metal without plastic inserts according to a review i've red..so the plastic materials are all in front..or inside..i have only one question..how much time can the battery last in 4g lte and gaming..?
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2016You must watching the iPhone, Samsung flagships and China flagships bend test, their back cove... moreHahahahahaaa. bend test esily breaks the cheap plastic frame. and dont forget, very simple scratch test makes the plastic fingerprint scanner to stop working.

[deleted post]And also to "update" some fanboys
That Sony Ericsson FOMASTICK SO902iWP+ from 2006 ran symbian OS
As stated here:
Released may 2006, same time as first Nokia waterproof symbian phone
So yeah, Sony and Nokia first waterproof smartphones.
You just got owned fanboy
[deleted post]Ok, SE2010, Kyocera wasn't before Sony, u feel better now?
Motorola Defy, Casio G'zOne Commando and Fujitsu F-01A water resistant smartphones were released before Sony. That puts Sony Fourth, not second. But Sony copied as usual.
BTW, your second link even says that there were many other water resistant Smartphone brands before Sony, including Nokia. That would put Sony back to fifth...You really should read your own links properly as you are only humilating yourself here.

Motorola Defy released in September 2011. Water Resistant Smartphone running Android Gingerbread. IP67 certified....2 years before Sony water resistant smartphones.
Kyocera HydroC5170 released in 2012 Q3. Water Resistant Smartphone running Android 4.0 icecream. IP67 certified.
Fujitsu F-01A released in January 2009. Water Resistant Smartphone running Symbian. Touchscreen, Gps, digital TV tuner, micro sd slot....rated underwater for 30 minutes in up to one metre.
These are the Facts, sorry to hurt your ego...so far, that puts Sony at fifth in releasing Water Resistant Smartphones...Obviously Sony copied the water resistant idea.
NikoLasdi, 21 Nov 2016Dude you always make undeniable statement..You must watching the iPhone, Samsung flagships and China flagships bend test, their back cover seal break through, these quality are crap no matter what material they use, the bend test make them shame even they make of titanium with gilding, their back cover lose in the bend test too cheap.
Tann Hauser, 21 Nov 2016Yet, all the cheapest phone copycats copy material and design from either apple or samsung....... moreReally? Cause this phone just look exactly my lumia 730 and 920 just exacyltly, huh
Gboy, 20 Nov 2016I am planning to buy this phone. How's its battery life and the camera? Does this phone drain ... moreAbout the performance and camera for sure it's better than most of flagship android phones in 2016, Specially front cam is best of all. About battery life it's bit low than my previous Z2 and yet I am able to use it a day easily. Love the battery care function coz mostly I am used to charge the phone overnight. When I plug it to charge at night it automatically calculate the time battery will be fully charged after charging brake during night, the time I normally remove the charger.
Xscrambler, 18 Nov 2016Well well well, I checked the quality using these: 1) B&O H6 2) Audio-Technica ATH-ESW... moreBTW my personal headphone is MDR XB650 BT. I am quite satisfied with the audio quality of the headphone connected to XZ, but the day I tried it with MDR 1000X I was really impressed with the audio quality. Because this headphone noise cancelling tec is superb even though XZ gives some great bluetooth audio too.

Live with the fact...
Sony first to bring waterproofness to premium mass produced smartphone territory, instead of just making a feature phone. First to create capless waterproof headphone jack and first to create capless usb charging port.
So yes, Sony is the industry leader in phone waterproof innovation.
I know its unbearable to you, being a hater and all, but you'll just have to Live with that fact....

The XZ is a masterpiece and the Casio G'zone commander is not. Yes it won the first release of waterproof smartphone but Casio shy to announce that because it isn't a masterpiece.
