Counterclockwise: water resistant phones

31 March 2019
There have been rugged, adventurous handsets since the dawn of cell phones. It was flagship smartphones that made the genre popular, though.

Only chlorinated and especially sea water damage the watertight seals with time. Sony advices to clean your device with tap water if your phone gets in contact with any other liquid other than tap water.
So no..

Sony making great water-resistant smartphone. The competitors just has much deeper marketing.

Never understood the need for water-resistant phones. Even they can be still be damaged by water internally. We'll never get waterproof electronics. Every time you dip your phone into water, the water resistance will decrease. Some would argue that it is still better than no water resistance and there would be less worry if a phone gets in contact with any liquid but repairs and repair costs would increase, years ago we never needed a heat gun or hairdryer to remove adhesive from our phones. If a phone has been in contact with liquid. I heard this girl at high school talk to one of her friends about the fact that she dropped her phone (water-resistant) in water to see if it would still work. That is just wrong and it would decrease the water-resistance of her phone. Stupid kids.

Cheap band aid style plastic .... Even low ends like Galaxy Y, Pocket and Core had better materials.
It needed even the jack to be closed.
4K recording limited
Yellowish oled
Mono speaker
Slowest UI ever
Poor updates policy, took months for new androids
2Gb ram
Micro sim
Poorly implemented FPS

For example, Google Pixel is not available in many countries (including mine) but would that stop me from admitting it has one of the best cameras (at least according to the tests and reviews)? Nope.
Same goes for Sony.

The point is that Sony has exited multiple markets so it's pretty pointless to come here saying how good Sony phones are and persuading people to buy them. Many people can't buy them even if they want to without sacrificing the warranty.

S5 was a crap model having water leakage in it, being a top device took by the people I know they tried it in water. Xperia was expert in water resistance and still!

I had 2 Xperia Z. The first one I bricked in day 7 trying to root it. I took it to the service center and told them I found it dead in the morning. They asked me if I placed it in water. Told them no, so they replaced it for FREE.
So the warranty actually is good for something!
Just because you never used it it doesn't mean it's not good.
