The evidence seems irrefutable that you did not close the flap, hence the white part turning red. It was designed to catch the liars who try to blame Sony instead of taking responsibility for their own stupidity.
got 4 phones for my family under a plan here in the philippines. 4k heats up fast not happy with JUST 10mins video, used 1 for taking picture in the kiddie pool everything okay until fog on the lens appeared and went like crazy not touching anything but keeps opening every app on the screen and shuts down. went to sony for warranty only to know it is not covered by the warranty because the white thingy went red according to sony technician. imagine that... a waterproof phone that does not cover warranty if it gets a little moisture.
last day my s5 dropped from my hand n now its not working properly
now i am planning to buy z2
plssss serious users provide some info that is it better to buy z2 or should i get another s5
Main drawback in z2 is tat we cant edit any type of file which is in sd card. Coz kitkat (Android 4.4) restricted tat iption....
dew, 25 Aug 2014why people say z2 heats and it have many problems is it true ??As you seem to love comparing it with Samsung Galaxy S5:
Z2 is far better constructed than the Samsung, heats less than Samsung, battery lasts considerably longer than Samsung, sound quality both for calls and for music is light years better than the Samsung.
However Samsung's camera, despite lower sensor resolution, is able to retain a large amount more of details, both in snapping and in video mode. On the other hand the movement on Sony is smoother than on Samsung.
Both are good phones, although Z2 looks far more premium phone than S5, and is far more waterproof (look at the "seal" of S5 and ask yourself if you'd really dare to get it wet) while S5 on the other hand allows you to change battery, which Sony doesn't…
So choose based on what's important for you.
Fari malik, 24 Aug 2014I am thinking to buy Z2 but as i have read some opinions that Z2's camera heated in 4k video m... moreS5 and note 3 can not record 4k more than 5 minutes.....while Z2 can record 4k upto 10 minutes and then it automatically turns off the camera to prevent any kind of damage due to heat.
well i can record 13minutes in 4K :/ no downclock
reason why i can 13minutes not more my internal was FULL LOLOLOL (not underwater no aircond)
dew, 25 Aug 2014why people say z2 heats and it have many problems is it true ??Because they have cheap plastic phones with high price and they have envy to the perfect of Z2:)
The phone's heating is not a problem for me because I used stamina mode for my Z2. Nonetheless, This phone is a perfect phone for me.
bahgat, 24 Aug 2014Yes my used it under water and sony device dead .It is now out of order and we set email Sony ... moreLOL:)
I took my Z2 every time I go to swimming pool and we snap photos in the pool
Sink't troll "nonsense story"
Tomazz, 24 Aug 2014Maybe I put it wrong. What I meant was that where there was supposed to be black on the screen... moreI enlighten you with one example:)
PUT Z2 and galaxy s5 and galaxy note3 and galaxy note 10.1 tablet (2k or QHD resolution) side by side
And "PLAY" "candy crush saga" game at the same time
You can find "red" colour on Amoled display (for Full HD&QHD) are coverd and influenced with "yellowish" colour
In Z2:) "red" and other colours are so real with awesome colour depth:)
In conclusion, the more the resolution is raised , the more oversaturated colour appears in" Amoled screen" and the more your eyes get troubles*
Have a good choice:)
Tomazz, 24 Aug 2014Maybe I put it wrong. What I meant was that where there was supposed to be black on the screen... moreYou should know Z2 has "IPS LIVE COLOUR LED" display:)
My old Z1's TFT display has a little poor viewing angle and black gamut has a little grey*
Z2 's display has excellent colour depth with true white&black balance
IPS has adequate viewing angle and when I use Z2 for a long time, my eyes have free from spectacles:)
I think you can't divided "being oversaturated" and "natural colour" and "contrast"
Over sharp bright colours do not mean natural ones
Z2 IPS display is very clear contrast and natural colours
Buy Z2 and feel it yourself!
