Locked: Sony: Donít use waterproof Xperia phones underwater

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony: Donít use waterproof Xperia phones underwater

It's bad yes but it's not that big of a deal because in the end of the day the phones still worked underwater. There hasn't been any reports of water breaking Xperia phones.

What I understand from this is that Sony is now being extra cautious since the technology isn't quite as waterproof as they thought it was and over using the phone underwater could cause problems in the long run.

Better yet, don't use or buy an Xperia device at all. Call Sony out on this half explicitived, BS brand, on the Me Too OS, and show them they have to make a worthwhile product for a respectible price if they want your business.

I had an Xperia Play, then an XZ, and finally an XZ3. All 3 were worthles, and the 3 worst investments I have ever made. Lucky, I got most of my money back on the Z and Z3. The XP, unfourtunatly, I just have to live with the regret and lost interest.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I've taken several underwater pictures with my Z3 and it still works flawlessly. But I think if there is the slightest damage to any port covers or if a port cover isn't firmly in place then you will ruin your phone. So no doubt Sony is saying don't use the phone underwater because you can't be trusted to make sure all seals are fully in place.

At first I thought this was more of a precautionary statement than anything; because there do exist people who will sue for anything that they can. Sony doesn't want to be held accountable for mistakes a person may make. However, since Sony advertised the phone's underwater capabilities in the first place; yes they are definitely in the wrong. I am more interested in seeing whether or not the early advertising will be retracted

Yeah, certainly something you want to make clear to your clients.



I use mine under water all the time. No issues here



Like on the bottle of surface cleaners where it says "99.9% of germs dead",
They are just covering their ass, they don't want to find out there has been a small defect with a component and half of their customers have submerged their phones under warranty thus leading to massive replacement orders and a division loss. This is a dissuasion technique and something that will be useful if they were ever brought to court for something.

I owned an Xperia Z and found it to be a fantastic phone and it held up under water with a lot of lime in it.... the glass was also excellent and survived many falls perfectly. The battery lasts longer than most others and the Walkman app is better than itunes. It is a huge pity more people dont buy them.

That makes sense. Basically like all those car commercials showing all the nonsense you can do with 4wd and pickup trucks, stuff I doubt is covered under normal use, flat out gets you arrested or will seriously damage your car. Maybe they should add "Professional photographer in clean water" as a disclaimer in the commercials :p



I have put mine underwater all the time and it is fine. Hell I remember reading about this one guy who had one work after falling off a boat and sitting in the ocean for 6 weeks.
