I'm using this device from 27 march 2013.
Thinking to change any new phone,but don't have any reason to do so.6 month back I faced problem in my ear speaker but it starts working normally on its own,and 2 days back something happens which I can't believe till now,my phone's
USB & headphone port cover(waterproof flaps) are not working from last one year due to there wear and tear and white stickers are turned into red.So 2 days back I faced sudden rain in which my phone got wet,water flows inside through USB and headphone space,then water droplets are visible in lenses of front and main camera,USB charging was not working headphone was not supported supported,proximity sensor was always on due to which it was hard to make and receive calls.I thought now it's gone and will need huge amount and some bad days at service centre.But in withing few hours each problem solved on it's own first charging start in two hours, then after one more hour proximity sensor stared to work normally,and then headphone supported,after 7-8 hours water droplets also disappeared from camera lenses. I never thought this device can withstand upto this limit,and also my phone has fallen on marble floor,road but nothing serious happen on body except few scratch and wearing of corners.

If you have issues with the Sony xperia Z go somewhere else stop posting comments that are subjective, have been using sony for many years and it does not disappoint me.

But Z is water resistant only for 1 meter pressure and as you you said its not enough good to swim with it after 5-6 months and as you said it's kind of advertising
Anyway The Xperia Z has IP57 and it can protect your device in 15cm to 1 meter
Take q look at this my friend :
I hope it helps you in future.
Basra420, 11 Jul 2015 I am still waiting for lollipop 5.0.2 update its 11 july 2015 plz tell me about release dateIt released about 3-4 month ago.
There is 2 way to update your device
1. Use pc and PC COMPANION SOFTWARE
2. Wireless update in your settings
In both cases full battery charge and free internal storage are strongly recommended
Mansoor, 10 Jul 2015Tell me which previous software is best for xperia z plz tell meBest version for now is, 5.0.2
But if you don't want to update your device to lollipop then 4.4.4 kitkat is also very vey nice
Be careful to use OFFICIAL rom
My Sony Xperia Z phone obtained water damage and is now not functioning. I find this unacceptable as the phone is advertised as waterproof enough for the company to state it is capable of taking underwater video. I understand that all connections must be sealed tightly, which they were, and yet water still got inside my phone and caused damage. After calling the support center I was told that the phone would not be covered for this kind damage under warranty more than a year from purchase . This is very disconcerting due to the fact that the device malfunctioned, not as a result of misuse/ abuse but as it not preforming in the capacity that the company states. Under this logic the phone should really be advertised as waterproof for a year only, being if any water damage is sustained by the phone the company will not take responsibility past one year. This is very upsetting.
I am still waiting for lollipop 5.0.2 update its 11 july 2015 plz tell me about release date
