bought this phone at sony centre, aeon bandaraya melaka.
been using it for a year.
everything is good except the waterproof claim by sony.
i used it underwater (swimming pool) for search & rescue of my friend engagement ring by turning the flash light on underwater. the phone immersed maximum around 50cm from water level, average 20cm to 30cm. Nearly 20 minutes underwater the phone started to flickering, becomes dims and i immediately turn off the phone. i dried my phone using towel but it seems that the water already inside the phone as the camera lens becomes hazy.
next, i open the covers besides the phone, and water already damages the phone as the indicator of waterdamages turns to orange colour.
i came home to find my warranty. it seems that sony doesn't cover any waterdamages.
i sent the phone to authorised sony centre in mahkota parade melaka for checkup and repair.
i have to bear the cost of repair estimated around rm500++ (they need to change battery and several cables inside the phone, the good news is the motherboard is safe). i bought that phone around rm1700.
the bad news is until now i didn't have my phone. nearly 1 and half months in sony service centre in mahkota parade melaka.
for all user please make sure to not use this phone underwater.
they can say that it is our fault that didn't close the covers properly or what even we hold the coves properly underwater.
do not trust advertisement 100%.
water don't friends with electronic items, they ruined them.
the display becomes dim and back to normal automatically . and the power button is not responding. i cannot turn on my phone using it... can anyone help

Amal v Pillai, 16 Oct 2015can anyone help. my phone has a dot on its back camera . looks like fog . i have put my phone ... moreIf this happened recently then I would recommend to wait and see if the moist disappears on its own due to phones heat. But if this problem is from long time and the phone is in warranty then just visit SONY Service Center in no time they will repair it on the spot and solve the problem(depending how the Service Center works in your locality). If your phone is out of warranty you can still get it repaired for low cost as there is no replacement of any part.
Anil, 16 Oct 2015Please compare Xperia z and z1 in term of appearance and display qualityBoth are almost same, the only difference you will find is in brightness XPERIA Z1 is brighter then Z.
cha54, 16 Oct 2015hi...can i ask a question?...i am having a problem with my phone xperiaz1....i try to downgrad... moreK....let me guess you have older version of Z1 which you upgraded to Lollipop and then downgraded either because of slow reaction time or faster drain of battery life. Now you are having trouble with Kitkat then don't worry visit to XDA developer and downgrade to Jelly Bean instead of upgrading to Lollipop if you are having any trouble with Lollipop like battery drain.(or if this is not correct prediction please give more details about the problem and I will try to solve it)
Please compare Xperia z and z1 in term of appearance and display quality
