Hi do you think it's worth putting my phone in water just to check its waterproofing. So can send back under warranty before i start modding,
As someone at work apparently put there z1(not the compact version) in a jug of water to show off and his phone stopped working.

So i was just wondering if it was Common for waterproofing to fail on these devices, and worth checking now rather than worrying about later.
Thnx

Yes I would. I did dunk mine into a bowl of water and let it sit there for like 5 minutes, there was no way I wouldn't have just to make sure.

I have read quite a few horror stories on the sony forum. I am not buying this phone to take a few silly pictures under water but just in case I need to use it under the rain or I drop it somewhere by accident. I am not gonna do any extreme tests unless I am forced to.
