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.

DenisXD, 26 Mar 2016sony z3 compact is your best bet in battery lifeThat is hard to find right now. Only Compact available is the Z5C.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2016Hi i am using Z5 for past 4 months , i would suggest you to buy this phone its the best choice... moreWow, its good to hear. I hope mine would perform like that too. Awaiting delivery right now. :)
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2016Z3 & Z5 heat less than Z3+ or Z2.Z3+ heats the most, followed by Z5. All thanks to Crapdragon 810. Looking at the benchmark scores can prove this. Both the phones produce inconsistent results
I have just bought my Z5 at the start of the year and I can confidently say it's Sony's best yet! love everything about it!
