Default Waterproof test Sony XPEIRA Z1 Compact

Because i have some time this weekend, i try to test water resistance of Sony XPERIA Z1 Compact. I make same test many times before with previous version Sony XPERIA smartphone and now test Z1 Compact. Phone pass the test without problem and one very important thing - after you keep phone from water, water is going out very quickly so after few seconds you can control your hone as normal. It is much better and comfortable than on XPERIA Z or XPERIA Z1. Do you just test water resistance of Z1 Compact?









If i help you, hit thx button. If i help you much, donate to buy new devices...

No, for the reason that just because you can doesn't mean you should, and being aware of the users in the Z section that have had their water indicators change during normal use and/or from doing these types of tests I'll not take the risk.

On the Z they are under the port covers which I assume is where they'll be on the whole range.

The Z1 Compact is only safe underwater in fresh water correct? I’d love to take it out in the ocean but I don’t think it’ll survive the salt water.

Strangely enough I couldn't find any water indicator sticker in the Xperia Z1 Compact. Did they just forgot to put one in my device or is this the same on everyones? I was looking for it in the ports, flaps, even the innards of the ports to no avail.

Thats what Sony writes, I've used it in salt water and others have to.
It still works as it should.
