Xperia Z2 is waterproof and dust resistent (to grate extent)
Sony says it has IP55/58 rating.
What does it mean?
How the same phone can have two ratings IP55 and IP58
Or does it mean something else?
Also galaxy S5 has IP67 rating. So are these ratings better than those of Z2?

Thnaks in advance!!

well thats a good question which I would also like to know.
As far as the normal IP raitings go the first number should stand for the dust resistance and the second one for the resistance against liquids. Sooo why have 2 ratings?
The S5 has 67 wheras the 7 means (as far as i know) that the phone shall not be immersed into water over 1 meter.
8 should therefore be able to handle a little bit more. But 5 is way worse and does not allow immersion into the water...

So anybody know why the Z2 has got 2 ratings?
