Got mine from Sony Store Canada and I've been taking mine into the shower daily to just clean the daily mess of bacteria it probably picks up and it's been fine. I've also been splashing and running water on it to show it off to friends and luckily it's still alright.

I even took a video with it sitting in the water

Hopefully I don't run into any issues like others have!

I called EE who have a 14 day replacement policy should the phone be defective. On trying to explain to them, that the phone has water in it as it is somehow defective, they didn't want to know. 'Sorry sir, that's water damage and is not covered by warranty'...'But the phone only has water in it, as it's defective, as it's supposed to be water proof' This went on for many minutes, I asked to speak to a supervisor but they fobbed me off. So I escalated it to a complaint. The phone is even advertised on EE as waterproof.

Though I did before speak to Sony who said they would pick it up and fix it under warranty, though whether they try and wriggle out of this when they have the device is another matter.


Phone works fine, but there's clearly a lot of moisture around the camera lense on both sides and the flash. Plus the flaps keep filling up with moisture too. Gonna leave it in some rice tonight in the airing cupboard see it it drys out any.

On close examination of the top of the screen, there are slight streaks evident of water. Will post a pic when I made 10 posts

The white paper bits inside the sim slot is still white, and the one on the Micro SD slot looks white to me, there was however condensation on the inside of the flap. The flap was firmly closed, and both were checked before I put it in. Not a happy bunny
What white paper bits you are talking about? My z2 hasnt got the water detecting strips on any of the slots...
Is it just me ?

Ye it has, but they are well hidden, there's a tiny white strip inside the sim slot, and there's another one inside the micro sd slot, but you have to pull the tray out to see it, but it's there.
