Well, after more than a half hour my volume got back.... so people who get this same problem, i think it has to do with some protection. The speaker have to be dry to get the normal volume back

I expect this question to appear on forums everywhere as more people get this phone and try it out in water.

I must be too old and remember when everyone had a waterproof radio for the shower (as they were advertised everywhere as the perfect gadget gift idea).. Which was fine until water got on the speaker and it got all muffled. Same thing with the XZ! And perhaps why we don't all have radios in the shower anymore!

Whoops Ive called up three to exchange my Xperia Z as I thought it had developed a volume fault.

I also peeled of the screen protector as the operator had asked are you sure the screen protector plastic is still attached ?

Doooh

Now the question is to fit or not fit the new supplied screen protectors that came with in the box ??

The screen looks so much sharper and clearer without it.
