Hi, today i bought xperia z ultra and i like to play games on it and i was thinking about testing it in water before i go to take a bath with it, is it really safe to put it in water?

Please someone tell me if it is safe.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for my bad English.

A while back I did some looking around in the Smartwatch2 threads and seen posts about bathing and showering while wearing it. There was some speculations that soapy water may have different properties allowing it to penetrate the seals, and that steam may be able to make its way in easier as it is a vapor.

Water goes in mine through the speaker. Still works like a champ! It drowns the music volume and I have to give it a view minutes to get back out. I think I poked the membrane or something but it's still visibly there.

Just be aware that some people have had issues with the "waterproofness", resulting in a non-functioning device and zero warranty.

I would honestly record the whole test on video in case something goes wrong. That way you'll have proof that it was a hardware defect that killed your Ultra and not stupidity.

and remember that the tests are on static water, not a shower, water with out surfactants (read soaps), and clean seals with NO dust on them
