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?
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.
Q: Does the phone support 64gb cards?
A: Yes it does [Confirmed] (Thanks to: hush66 )
Q: Does the phone have a notification led?
A: Yes, in the upper right corner. "It works for notifications (SMS, Whatsapp, etc) as well as charging indicator."[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.

A: The screen protector which comes with the phone does, the glass screen itself doesn't. (Still needs to be confirmed)
