Welp I've jinxed myself. Took my phone to the river yesterday, and now I have condensation in my camera lens. Phone still works, but condensation in back lens, flash lens, and front lens. Water indicators inside USB flap and SD card flap are also red now.

I think the combo of cold water + 100 weather might have been an issue. I have it sitting in rice right now, will update on what happens.

The power button and volume rockers were not meant to be pressed while under water it seemed. I have my power button set as shutter control and after a few presses the phone shuts down. Apparently the power button got stuck in the "pressed" position. Flaps were still white and no other water-related problems came with the power button trouble. Fixes itself after 15-20 minutes.

I used the Z1c in a lake for about 5 minutes. Water behind the screen, lens (front and back) and non responsive power button. Two days in a rice-bath almost sucked it dry but there is stil some stains in de screen. Send a letter to Sony to see how they are planning on fixing this because flaps were closed and there is some movement in the back cover.

Well, they should replace the entire phone free of charge. That's what they did with mine, I got a defective unit though which have a loose backcover so I'm goin to send it in.

Unhappy Romanian Saga

I bought mine from Amazon.de.
I wash it every day , even with alcohool for germ killing purposes ( work as a doctor )
Everithing fine until I broke my simcardreader . Sent to Sony Romania wich is my worst nightmare , return with a nasty squeeekinh noise and in a same condition but !
I put in the water , it fills with water . Seems that they forgot to waterseal when they open it ...
I open the back , drain the water , dry at sun for 2 days , put the back on . SURPRISE !
It works for two days or so , and then suddenly go dead .
Finally I contact Amazon , and they send me a new one in 7 days !!! Respect !

The new one is perfect for now ...

I'm currently living in Germany and planning to buy this phone, did you buy it to amazon directly or on the amazon marketplace?

I have no issues with my phone. I have been in and out with my phone from the swimming pool and lastly a freaking theme park. Took pictures in the wave pool, took it along the water rides and must admit, this is one heck of a device. It's like a GoPro phone.
