The #Sony #XperiaZ5 and a few older flagships come with water resistant tech underneath as we all know. However, the company has now urged its users to not use the phones underwater as it could lead to potentially damaging results. This is despite the smartphone featuring water resistance tech and the ability to sustain water pressure up to 1.5 meters.
The company’s support page mentions the following “the IP rating of your device was achieved in laboratory conditions in standby mode, so you should not use the device underwater, such as taking pictures.” It’s funny that the company would change its words now as some of its past promotional materials have endorsed the ability to take pictures underwater, like in the image above.
Perhaps the company ran into some water damage related issues in such situations. With the company’s stance now firm on this, it’s clear that Sony will not entertain any such complaints in the future. So if you have a water resistant Sony smartphone, just make sure you don’t take it swimming with you.
