Is there a limit to the waterproofing temperature of the Z1?

I get that I can dunk it in a freshwater pool, or clean it off in the sink, but what if I spill my glass of tea on it? (It being near boiling point)

While I have no idea about limits, sudden changes in temperature are bad to anything, whether waterproof or not.

Think of it the same as how a hot cup can shatter when placed on ice.

It would be best to just ask Sony. Second hand information for something like this is a terrible idea unless someone can point directly to data published by Sony.

ist guess it wouldn`t be good to drop it in hot water. not because of the waterproof. my thoughts are about the glass. as we all know that glass cracks easily in sudden changing temperatures.

I can say that I use my Sony Tablet Z and my Z1 in my hot tub set at 104 F with no issues. I have dunked both but typically mount the tab just above the rim but it has fell in several times.

Maybe if u just spoil ur glass with hot water i think it wont do any damage..
But its a different story if u dip it on a hot water..

And like posts above, sudden temperatue change is very bad for materials..

Well its just my opinion..
