Water resistance is a feature that’s spreading to many devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5, but it’s one that Sony’s Xperia products have featured for some time. According to the level of resistance to water of these devices, they can survive underwater for half an hour at a time. In the case of the Xperia Z2, it can last that long at a depth of 1.5 meters.
However, someone dropped their Xperia Z2 while water skiing and didn’t end up getting it back for 6 whole weeks. The device spent 6 weeks under 10 meters of salt water, which is an experience that the phone was never intended to live through. Despite some physical damage, though, it’s still functional!
Obviously the drop took its toll on the Xperia Z2, especially with its glass back, but the fact that it still works and that the salt water didn’t kill it is pretty amazing. Sony makes a tough phone! We obviously don’t suggest you try this with your own device, but if the time comes, it’s good to know it should be able to handle it.
