One of the big strengths of the Sony Xperia Z is its water and dust resistance. It is one of the key features that is likely to separate it from other flagships in 2013. Sony says that the handset is water resistant up to 1 metre and that it can be submerged for 30 minutes. Well if you’re wondering whether it is resistant enough to take to your local swimming pool then the video below has the answer.
It was taken from the team at SoyaCincau, where it was submerged in water up to 1.5 metres in depth. The phone wasn’t treated with kids gloves as you’ll see in the video, so it’s encouraging that you will be able to use it in the pool or the beach and take some great footage with family and friends. The handset cannot be operated under water, therefore the record button needs to be pressed before being submerged. The quality of the video is great all things considered and you can tell that the mic can pick up a lot of audio too. See the video below.
