Waterproof Phone: Sony Xperia Z (VIDEO + PHOTOS)

Sony had a lot to show for at CES 2013.

The new Sony Xperia Z not only has a 5-inch, 1080p screen and quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor it can also survive underwater!


The Xperia Z features a glass polymer body and Bravia-engine enhanced display. According to Sony, the Xperia can survive underwater for approximately 30 minutes.



The superphone’s resolution also shined with bright colors and sharp images on the 5-inch display. It even has a feature where it shows the difference in resolution on a split-screen.


The Xperia also boasts a 13-MP rear-facing camera which can shoot on burst mode at 7fps continuously. However, the phone does not have a “best shot” feature like HTC has in its burst mode.


Other specs include 2GB of RAM, LTE radio and 16GB of internal storage. In addition, the Xperia Z has a microSD Card slot for storage expansion which many of its competitors have taken out.

Although Sony’s phone has a slim design, battery life is about the same as other competitors. The Galaxy Note II still has a better battery life. However, disabling background services may extend the Xperia’s battery life.

Of course, the most striking feature of the Xperia is the ability to work for up to 30 minutes submerged in up to 1 meter of water. That will take care of those toilet incidents! Of course this doesn’t mean you should scuba dive with your phone.


During a test by Avram Piltch, LAPTOP Online Editorial Director, the phone can be used without drying it off. The display can detect wet fingers on the screen.

And according to Sony, the phone is also dust proof.

So, will Sony’s Xperia Z put the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 underwater?
