Because i have some time this weekend, i try to test water resistance of Sony XPERIA Z1 Compact. I make same test many times before with previous version Sony XPERIA smartphone and now test Z1 Compact. Phone pass the test without problem and one very important thing - after you keep phone from water, water is going out very quickly so after few seconds you can control your hone as normal. It is much better and comfortable than on XPERIA Z or XPERIA Z1. Do you just test water resistance of Z1 Compact?

Waterproof test? You put a phone in some water and it's a test?

No, for the reason that just because you can doesn't mean you should, and being aware of the users in the Z section that have had their water indicators change during normal use and/or from doing these types of tests I'll not take the risk.

On the Z they are under the port covers which I assume is where they'll be on the whole range.

im totaly afraid of putting my z1c on a pool, despite wanting to take some underwater pics...

i thing it would be cool for users to take their experince with the phone underwater, in this thread.

The Z1 Compact is only safe underwater in fresh water correct? I’d love to take it out in the ocean but I don’t think it’ll survive the salt water.

Dipped it in the neighbours fish tank. Got a few laughs.

Rubber sealing might be coming off
I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I couldn't find a better one, so here I am.

I just noticed that my Xperia Z1 Compact had something hanging out of it at it's lower frame.
Here are some pictures I've taken of it:

[I'm a new user, so I can't post outside links, so please remove the unnecessary space!]

I am scared, because I think this could be the rubber sealing and that it is now no longer waterproof
What do you think about it? Thanks in advance!
