After taking my z1c to a indoor swimming pool (higher humidity) there was condensation on the inside of the camera window for three days. while using the phone in the pool the screen was not very responsive and it suddenly kept turning the screen on and off as if i was tapping the power button. after a couple of days everything was back to normal and since i need my phone for work i didn't bother to send it back in. after another swimming pool visit the same happened, except this time te condensation only stayed for 1 day. and everything returned to normal. then after a month or so the phone became wonky. it would charge overnight to 100%, but if i detached the usb cable while the screen was off, it would not turn the screen on anymore. i would need to do a hard power off. after which it turns back on but wouldbe stuck in a boot loop until i hard power off'ed it again. when it turned back on, the battery would be around 16%. also, during normal use sometimes the screen wouldn't go back on either. at this time i sent it back for repair to some company that does the repairs for sony in my country. they sent it back to sony (or some other repair center) and after 3-4 weeks i finally got my phone back (probably took longer because of xmas and new year). When i got it back it didn't say anything about what had been repaired (wankers), but found a small sticker somewhere on the packaging that said "swap approved", so they gave me an all new phone.

let's hope this one is waterproof....

No offence The Phone is waterproof but not idiotproof and if ur taking it to the swimming pool well u arent smart then. This waterproof has special conditions that are wrote in the instruction and i bet u broke them twice . No offence again but i wish they would void ur varanty maybe u would learn something, or maybe not. Like i said Phone is waterproof but not idiotproof

Hey, buddy! You should be a little more polite on the forums. Calling people idiots will not bring you any fans you know?

This is the Toyota hilux of smartphones. Had this phone for a long time and been under water various times been dropped many. 5 days ago i put it under a tap to give it the ol monthly clean and then moments later parts of my screen started changing colour. Then my phone started playing up really bad and the screen was non responsive, it was much dead so i opened the flaps nothing came out. I assumed it was dead so planned on buying the z3 compact then i tried turning it on today and its alive! The screen still looks weird but it works. The Toyota Hilux of smartphones!
