A new report from Sony may leave possible Z5 buyers a little skeptical. Going forward, users who fully immerse their Z5 handset in water will have their warranty voided. We’re not sure as to why Sony is doing this mainly because its Z5 handsets are listed with an IP68 rating.
This goes for all three of Sony’s upcoming handsets, the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Premium and the Xperia Z5 Compact. The company has been advertising its recent flagship’s water proofing capabilities for years now. However, the company has changed its mind when it comes to fully immersing the handsets in water. This could have been due to an obsessive amount of complaints with past handsets. If you still decide to purchase one of the above Xperia Z5 handsets, make sure you understand your device’s limitations. Unfortunately, Sony will no longer refund your money nor give you a replacement device if they have any reasonable suspicion to water damage.
Following Sony’s statement, it uploaded a dedicated page on its website indicating the water and dust limitations. The company highly advises users not to use the handset under water. For more details, check out the source link down below.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Sony should continue advertising underwater photos in its ads if it’s not willing to replace handsets with water damage?
