Sony urges NOT to use the Xperia Z5 underwater

Sony Xperia Z5

Xperia was known best for being waterproof and taking pictures under water. However, with the new Xperia Z5, Sony has changed its guidelines by mentioning ‘not to take the device under water, and if you do, the warranty will be void’

The Xperia Z5 had the highest possible IP68 rating for dust and water resistance but with this announcement, the resistance factor has become contradictory. The new rating indicates that the device has been tested by being immersed in the fresh water for about 30 minutes and up to 1.5 meters.

However, the language seems to have changed in Sony’s website regarding the Xperia Z5 to: ‘The IP rating of your device was achieved in laboratory conditions in standby mode, so you should not use the device underwater

Sony, simply, cannot gurantee that swimming and taking photos won’t damages your handset since they did not test the phone in such scenario.

“There are… many environmental factors which we could not assess [during testing],” explains a Sony representative in a forum post. “Therefore we recommend not submerging our Xperia Z5 in water.”

No matter what, the Sony Xperia series is widely known for this great feature and those who own it, know the enjoyment of taking pictures under the water.
