But don't worry about it. The page linked at the end may help, though the question was for the Xperia Z. I feel the best answer is the 7th post dealing with the service menu apk: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-z/help/xperia-z-water-proof-test-menu-t2355374
It's gonna be great to use this one........ i always like xperiaaaaaaaaaaaa but this one having a most sensitive screen i ever seen
Guys why does my xperia zr tells it's not water proof when checked thru *#*#7378423#*#* settings..is it common or i have a defective device?

Leaving apart the problem of heat, zr is one of the fabulous phone I hav ever used. ZR gives the perfect pictures nd videos. No other phones in category would provide such facilities... Really a great phone that would give me the best use of my work and personaliEd apps

And most of the videos from the net are black for the first second. There's nothing wrong with your phone.
kimboss, 05 Apr 2014My Xperia zr have problem of heat anyone face this problem :/ ?My phone goes to 43 degrees while playing dead trigger 2 for more than half an hour outdoors(it's really hot now, Chennai, India)
And it cools all the way from 43 to 33 within 5mins after turning off the screen.

You can get to 4.3 jelly Bean.. it doesn't have such issues.
The fix for the Wi-Fi, Hotspot issue is take out the battery while on, and snap it back in. After that, no more issues for me. Updated to build ...101 and JB 4.3. All stock, non-rooted. The ZR is still the only phone to bring flagship experience without the flagship price tag. Stock memory is a little under 5GB of 8GB. RAM is 1.89GB. All I can say is the alleged viewing angle drawback is overrated.
HVS, 03 Apr 2014Yes. You can use it. There's no harm to the phone but before you go there understand under wat... moreThanks HVS for your review. Got my ZR ! I'm using it on 4.1 but when I open albums I can't see thumbnails for videos. they're just black..I have to open each vid to see which one I'm looking for... so is there any way I could help my vid thumbnails visible or is it available in 4.3 update??
Updated to 4.3..
Cool features.., Happy wid it.
I had a problem with bluetooth, submitted to service centre and to my surprise they solve it wid a full dedication.
Now it's almost half a year I'm using this device, l must say this is a superb, superb phone.
i've use my Xperia ZR for half year n im not facing any problem on it.. jyeahh ;) my current android version is jellybean 4.3
This mobile is having Bluetooth and NFC problems. Even brand new mobiles also having this problems. Camera is also not upto the mark. Except these two this is good.
jhosh, 03 Apr 2014what is the difference between planned upgrade and upgradable?? tnxAccording to my knowledge, planned upgrade means the mobile company has planned to upgrade the device and the update will be available soon or their next devices. And upgradable means the device can and holds it's capacities to upgrade but the company has not yet launch the update.
