I got a refund. Got my money back and I no longer have a Z2.

I recomend that prospective buyers try it at several stores so they get a feeling of its average build quality and buy at one that allows refunds just in case.

I am disappointed by the build quality and I wish those 50 grams they saved from the first Z were used to reinforce the body instead. The original Z tablet was light enough already.

In all other regards, however, the tablet was the best Android tablet experience you can buy.

ok I just got my new replacement I think this issue is from the production line or somehow its a design flow, this is the 2nd one im feeling and it feels diffrent then my first, the first that I had replaced had the issue from the right side and now this one has the issue from the left side but its diffrent, no more crackling sound under the bezel, but this is just like a loose feel more over then the one from the past, I guess the more tighter they make it the more crackling sound u will feel when handling device. I still didnt test the touch screen and water proof, im going to be using this daily on water and give a later feedback on touch screen and anything else, atleast its less frustrating then my previous one which kept sketching crackling sounds on the right side of the bezel whenever I pick it up with 1 hand from the right.

OK until now was under water for 15min lots of bubbles was coming out of it from the bezel where their was no port it was weird unlike the first one. Its not an iPad the gaps loose feeling from the design is the only problem. The back feels is not enforced proper to the whole build quality. It's like ablowfish,medium pressure presses can make you feel the sway of the build qualities loosness of the chassis /back. &screen

Water goes in the bezel feels heavier after its set under water and I am not sure please verify with your tablet

New update...

Yes water goes in just verified now the crackling sound is back when it used to be a gap of air is now a crackling sounds. The bezel body of this build design is not reinforced perfectly. This is an obvious glitch Sony please wake up.

If u guys want I can demonstrate what I mean and how I knew water goes in from the right side of this tablet.
Once I diped it in my bath tub theirs bubbles lots of little bubbles coming from the upper right edge of the bezel... Meaning air is released....

Their was no sound when I used to carry this tablet with ( one hand) from the (right side edge) on Landscape

But now that first issue still arises..

It's the same issue with the one I had replaced.

Sony is not aware of this issue please help shoutcast to people like Engadget and the review people to reach Sony since Sony support line and emails are dense to react to whom.

i have a same problem on my LTE version SGP521. feels like cheap poorly made device when I hear that cracking sound and I have a feeling that could compromise water tight seal. I talked to sony support and they gave me retarded respond saying give it a time. WTF Sony???
I'm gonna start calling them up until I get replacement I'm not waiting this will not get fixed itself magically.

Myne is same model tablet , the sgp is Singapore base and this issue is the same issue that z2 phone owners are experiencing in Singapore.

if u Google gap screen z2 Singapore, the results will show z2 phone owners 2months ago complaining about the gaps and water resistant.

Sony did not fix Singapore past problem with the z2 phone owners, if this issue is just Singapore I hope so then I'm returning my tablet and ordering one from UK or USA.
