Hello there people, I decided that I/we should have a topic specially for those who want to buy the Xperia Z or want to know certain things.
The forum (Xperia Z section) will grow and grow because more and more people will buy the phone and many of them will have the same questions, so to prevent them for making the same topic over and over, they can find their answers in here.
I'm just going to make a q&a( question and answer) list so that some things can be cleared up for the people that are still in doubt.
Everyone is free to post some questions (and answers) in this topic, I will edit them in the first post.
Q: Is the Xperia Z water resistant or water proof? A: The phone is water proof, you can hold it under water (1 meter/ +- 3feet) for 30minutes.
Although its not advised that you hold the phone in water that contains acids like sea water which contains salt.
Q: Since the phone is water proof how will the warranty system work? A:
Q: Does the touch screen still works while it's under water? A: The touch screen doesn't work while the phone is fully under water, so the touch screen will work while you're taking a shower, as long as there aren't too many drops on the screen. The screen itself will keep working so watching a movie for example shouldn't be a problem.

A: Yes it does [Confirmed] (Thanks to: hush66 )

Q: Oleophobic coating? What's that?
A: Source: Wikipedia. A lipophobic coating is used on the touchscreens of Apple's iPhones since the 3GS, their iPads, Nokia's N9 and Lumia devices, various Samsung phones such as the Google Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, the HTC HD2, Hero and Flyer and many other phones to repel fingerprint oil, which aids in preventing and cleaning fingerprint marks.
Q: So does this phone have oleophobic coating?
A: The screen protector which comes with the phone does, the glass screen itself doesn't. (Still needs to be confirmed)
Q: Can I use this phone without a screen protector?
A: Yes you can, but it's suggested that you use a screen protector (The phone comes with a screen protector already applied on the phone)

If you read the faq your question would be answered (Third question)
The reason that I made this topic is so that people read the faq first before asking questions/making topics.
Can someone confirm that please ^
My question is different with the Third question. The third question inquires whether the touch screen still working when the phone is under the water. But I'd like to know does it support floating touch feature, that means even if some wet on the screen surface, not fully under the water, is the touch still available? You know, surface of glass screen may not always dry, especially in a warm room when it is winter. Anyone can confirm this?
