Sony Xperia Z2 submerged underwater for six weeks and lives to tell the tale

Xperia Z2 Water

We know that the Sony Xperia Z2 is water resistant and can handle water of up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. But what if the device was lost in 10 meter of water for six weeks? Well, one would assume the device would be far beyond functionality, but that’s not the case for Alexander Max√©n who lost his phone in the ocean while vacationing in Sweden. And a friend discovered the phone at the drop spot six weeks later while scuba diving in the area.

It is said that although the phone died of juice after being in there for so long, it was fully functional after being charged up again, even to the extent of making phone calls and performing regular tasks. The back however appears to have¬†visible cracks, but that’s not something which would concern the owner much.

Regardless of the outcome, we can put this down to sheer luck and we suggest you refrain from taking it easy with the Z2 underwater. But Sony would certainly love this PR boost coming from an actual user.
