When OEMs boast of their devices’ water-proof capabilities, they are still very careful to set limitations on what sort of conditions they will be able to survive. For example, Sony
said that while their Xperia Z2
is indeed water-resistant, it complies with iP58 so it can only stand up to 30 minutes under 1.5 mm of freshwater. Well, a Swede’s experience with his Z2 might surprise even the people over at Sony as it survived being under 10 meters deep for an amazing six weeks and lived to tell the tale.
