Thumbs up
If anyone has experienced a phone that has been submerged to water and the water has penetrated the seals, try your best to not have the phone powered on at all. The least the better. Second, have the phone submerged into uncooked rice ,e.g. a container with dry rice, have the phone totally covered and submerged in the rice for 3-5 days. This has saved me with uncertified waterlogged phone in the past. Last being s4 mini!

Well, FOUR weeks later. Yesterday I recieved a mail from the store where the phone came from. Waterdamage was not my fault and I got my money back. They paid me the price that was paid for it back in Februari (LOL) and that was 525,- euros. I bought it second hand for just 250,- so fair deal I would say. After that I walked back into the store and bought a new one, for just 399,-.

Is it me or did I get extremely lucky!

Though I think repair took way to long, it is a good service that they tested the phone and concluded that it wasn't my fault indeed. So I'm happy again with my shiny brand new Z1 compact!

Now i'm gonna wait untill I finally get my WeLoop Tommy and then I'm really a happy camper

Now that backcover of the new one doesn't seem to really seal, is that a problem? Should I return it?

Superb waterproofing
I had my Z1 Compact for well over half a year now and having taken underwater shots, using it in the shower and simply just putting my phone under a running tap to remove any oily smudges from regular use (makes my hardcore iPhone friends crazy ), I have concluded that the waterproofing of this phone will not just stand the occasional splashes, but will even withstand the daily water contact same as my wristwatch

My screen got water damaged but this is the 3rd time I used my phone underwater, was sent for repair, and after 4 weeks, is delivered back to my house. I will see it in a few days. Still under warranty.
