If your Sony smartphone or tablet is waterproof to IPX8 standard*, then you can use it in a chlorinated swimming pool. However, avoid keeping the device in the pool for too long and remember to rinse it off thoroughly with fresh water once you get out.
Over time, chlorinated water can corrode the rubber seals, so prolonged use in chlorinated water is not recommended. But if you want to use your device to get underwater close-ups of a spectacular dive or your childÂ’s first swimming lesson, go ahead.
* Sony devices that are rated IPX7 or lower should not be exposed to chlorinated water.

I think if this phone wasn't 100% water proof it shouldn't have ip68 certificate, I mean if this one can handle just some dropped water or rain then it's certificate should be IPx5. When they claim their product has IP68 it mean it has to protected again drowning in water in depth of 1.5 meter and last for 30 minutes. Also note that it is protected against pure water.I guess your phone break down due to environmental situation.maybe depths were more than 1.5 m or it rest there more than 30 minutes , maybe pool water is different from pure water. This phone doesn't have USB port & 3.5 jack cover so it's not a good idea to carry your phone into pool

I got a sony xperia z5 and its very fast, doesnt overheat and the battery is awesome.Im a freak in trading phones all the time and i had the s4,note 3,lg g3,xperia z3,nexus 6,note 4,s6,htc one m9,lg g4,xperia z3+ and the z5.Lg phones are crap,htc one m9 overheated,i always like samsung and for the xperia series the z3 was good,the z3+ overheated alot and the battery was bad(kind of like lg's) and the z5 is amazing.Since i upgraded it to marshmallow its faster then my girlfriends s6, it doesnt overheat and the battery life way better then all of these other phones and i meen double in some cases.
CONFUSED, 31 Mar 2016why the hell comment on this or even click on its page to leave that comment.because he is either one of the paid trolls from Samsung that comes here to bash it's competition or he is just a fanboy who spread hate towards any other brand....
anyway I wonder why GSMARENA ignores news like these :
if it was Samsung phone to be awarded for design news would be all over the page....

Marjan1508, 31 Mar 2016yeah...but sony doesnt say that...now they are saying DONT SUBMERGE them under water...dont us... moreNO ! exact statement goes like this :
''You should not: put the device completely underwater; or expose it to seawater, salt water, chlorinated water or liquids such as drinks.''
'' YOU SHOULD NOT '' but you are not prohibited to do so and there is no way to prove exactly what someone actually did with phone. you can submerge your phone underwater and warranty will still be accepted.
the reason why they changed their policy is because most of the people don't have enough common sense and take their phone for submarine that can go trough anything like taking phone on swim 300 meters offshore in the ocean and then if phone happens to brake just walk in Sony store and expect replacement for brand new device ....
that's why new statement starts like this :
''The Xperia is waterproof and protected against dust, so don't worry if you get caught in the rain or want to wash off dirt under a tap, but remember: all ports and attached covers should be firmly closed''
In the end it means don't be a fu#king stupid and use it with some care yes use it in water but like it's supposed to be used it's phone that costs 700$ and it's not swimming duck for your bath.

There are many videos on YouTube which they have done the same thing And the result is same as me. Don't worry if your Xperia Z5 dropped into water.
i don't like this phone but i love samsung galaxy note 4 very much,because is one of the best that samsung have ever made in my opinion.
The Z5 is one of the worst phones I have ever used. Its slow, it's prone to overheating and the battery life isn't great. I was very impressed with the Z3 and thought the Z5 would be an upgrade but I was wrong. Might have to go back to Samsung.
