Xperia Z2 is star ingredient in frozen cocktail

Z2 cocktailWe already know that the Xperia Z2 is water resistant, but how well does the phone fare in icey conditions? This is what Nixanbal wanted to find out and did in style creating a frozen cocktail with the Xperia Z2 taking centre stage.

The Xperia Z2 was placed in a box full of water, ice and fruit. It was then put in the freezer for around 12 hours. If you want to know whether the handset is ice-proof, as well as waterproof, check out the video below.

    *Behind The Scenes*

  • Johannes Kos

    Correct me if im wrong but that picture is not a Z2

  • David Hvatov

    That’s Z, not Z2. This happens, when flaps aren’t properly closed. Open flaps and wait til it’s gone.

  • Cratchit

    That looks a Z to me… As David said earlier this happens when the flaps aren’t shut or the back panel becomes raised (the former more likely).

  • ???cz

    Sure is a xperia Z but this happen to ‘waterproof’ phones even with flap are closed.

  • ???cz

    u’re right but ut just was an example (:

  • ???cz

    So Z2 its Water, Ice, Fire (due overheating) and Dust Proof Phone!

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Yes it is Z, But the cause isn’t the Flap disclosed…. This thing happens when you take your phone to a steam bath or From hot to cold weather. It happened to me….. Use Silica Gel or dry Rice, put your Phone with it into an air tight container for a day and it will be gone !!!

    My Xperia Z fogged up after some time in the water. Goes away after a while, with no harm done to my phone

  • AsadMulla

    happened to mine also when I was in a hot tub. I opened the flaps and put it on top of a radiator for a good few hours. It all cleared up. No ongoing issues. The flaps on my phone were definitely not open. I think the water got in from the loose back panel

    yup this is my Xperia Z :D

  • Wolf0491

    Yeah my Z has a raised back panel. This happens to me from water sweating off of glasses at dinner and my phone being to close lol. Usually gone next day.

  • SkyS1gn

    Yeah? My Z2 just got foggy behind the lens like dat, ALL FLAPS WAS CLOSED! Also, its my 2nd device.. still death pixel, lifted back an front panel, exc exc….

    Well I guess It’s normal most of waterproof stuff get it not only on phone, for example it’s even happen on watch even you paid it 30,000$.
    because of the condensation of the air who is inside.

  • HardyHarHar

    Water itself doesn’t short electronics. It’s the minerals in the water that’s shorting our devices hence if it’s just a condensed water it won’t do any harm on your phone. Same reason why alcohol won’t destroy your phone. Because it’s mixed with only distilled water not tap water.

  • Gary Ohanian

    It’s just normal condensation. The phones aren’t a completely sealed unit. For it not to condense in all conditions it would have to be vacuum sealed shut.

    Every time you open and close flaps you let air in and out. You’re also letting some water in. How much obliviously depends on the temperature, humidity and air pressure.

    It’s simple science. Warm moist air comes in contact with a cooler surface and once it’s dropped past the dew point, liquid water will form. It’s not water getting in through the seal, it’s water already inside your phone that was vapour.

  • HardyHarHar

    They should have run antutu while it’s on the ice :D

  • Sreekanth Namboothiri

    I Experienced this several times when i was playing in water theme park with my Xperia Z :) this is just a science logic that it can happen anytime..even it happened when i was in a high cold hill top :)

  • Vimu

    thats a Xperia Z2 men!! check your specs first! cant you see there speaker at the bottom in the 4th image?

  • FKB

    Bitch can whine about everything! Amazing!

    I have lost hope in Sony’s IP rating of phones. Fried my Z’s camera module and the power button feedback due to a few splashes and 4-5s water submersion while taking pictures in the pool last month. All flaps were tightly sealed and i charge daily using the dock. All started with the condensation on the lenses.

    Now I treat my Z Ultra and Tablet Z as normal devices, no more pool action for those 2 devices. Sony, you lost my trust. Now my Z is just a fancy paperweight on a dock :(

  • Rob

    Congratulations, you’ve discovered condensation.

  • Froh

    How do people not know how condensation works?! Condensation is not due to water leaking inside, its due to the fact that there is air inside the phone and a temperature difference with the air outside the phone.

  • Sture Karlsson

    Z is only resistant. Z2/z1 has proof

  • jokensy

    This is the Xperia Z not the Z2!

  • jokensy

    Xperia blog is always late.This video has been on youtube for about 3 or 4 days.

  • roeshak

    And the point of this is????

  • Hunter

    Dude i know how condensation works. I just want to point out that after the ‘condensation’ my Z failed on me. I was merely highlighting the starting point of my problems.

    Regardless, after taking it to the shop, they confirmed that water did came into my Z and it spoiled my camera module up top. Not just ‘temperature difference’ caused MY case of lense ‘condensation’.

  • Froh

    Still, this has nothing to do with the IP rating, of which you seemingly lost hope for.

  • Hunter

    And how did you casually conclude that? Does water coming in NOT related to IP? You talk all science-y and correcting people about condensation, yet you fail to relate water getting in an IP5x rated device?

  • ???cz

    Well dude you may know the water of the pools are full with quimicals and them f*** the water resistance of the ‘waterproof’ sony phones… sadly because sony doesnt mention that in the advertising because they focus the water resistance. very bad for sony.

  • suit up !

    show off

  • josesl16

    Um, it could just be a defective unit, you know.
