No one appears to have asked something this specific so here goes.
Conveniently I cracked the glass back of my Xperia Z1; and was just curious as to how a crack here will affect how waterproof it is.
I assume it's no good now, however I would like to confirm, particularly with anyone who has pulled one apart.
Will be calling Sony tomorrow to try sort this out too.

Cheers guys.

Sorry for the delay, had to find something to take a photo with, and a decent light source.

I bumped it off a table onto a wooden floor, don't mind forking out some cash for repairs though (just not sure if I can cope with not having my phone for a few days, sorta need it for work).

I have also emailed Sony, but I don't think I'll get a reply until tomorrow.

Attached is picture.

are you sure the glass panel is cracked ? or it is the crack on sheet above it ?

I didn't know the sheet above could crack the way this did, unless it scratched on something when it fell. I don't particularly want to take the ASF off as I've heard it voids warranty, however you have got me thinking, it does look like just the film on top.

It'd be nice if Sony sold replacement films.
