Sony: Put Not Your Waterproof Xperia Z5 under Water

Although the new Sony Xperia Z5 is water-and dustproof in up to 3 meters deep, Sony now warns against lowering or use your phone in just water.

Sony has throughout its Z-series of smartphones made himself noticed by offering either water-and dust density or rejection, but with the latest Xperia Sony Z5-top model is significantly more cautious with what you must expose the phone for.

Despite the so-called IP68 certification, which ensures water-and dust density in up to 3 meters depth advise against Sony quite clearly on his own website in just to lower it into the water. Exactly it says:

“You must not: immerse the device completely in water or subject it to sea water, salt water, chlorinated water or fluids such as beverages. Warranty to the misuse or improper use of the device.”

Sony has dedicated page about protection against water and dust on its products, and here it appears several times, that Sony recommends against use of the phone under the water. “Avoid using the device to take pictures while you perform any kind of activity under the water, including diving or snorkeling,” it says on the website.

In a forum post writes a Sony employee the following about the revised policy for water-and dust density:

“Movement or use of the device, while it is under water, has not been tested in the laboratory. There are also many environmental factors, which we could not assess (URf.eks. water movement or changes in water pressure during movement), if the device is in use under water. Therefore, we recommend not to lower our Xperia Z5 in water. “

The previous year has not been afraid to advertise Sony for its smartphones and tablets under fresh water, but also in use in swimming pools and in seawater – something which is quite clearly not recommended now and which can be categorized as misuse or improper use. In the gallery above is seen more pictures of Sony’s previous products in use in ways that so now could cost the guarantee with the latest top model.

It turns out even that change according to XperiaBlog goes back to may of this year and also applies to the Xperia Z3 and Z3 +. With the same stringent guidelines for using Xperia Z5 under water, it is not just an isolated case.
