We probably won’t get a true sense of how durable the Sony Xperia Z is until it’s released. The fact that it comes with a glass back has some people concerned on the fragility of the device. We’ve already seen one drop-test video, although we’d like to see another onto concrete to see how the glass fares.
Until then, check out the video below, where the Xperia Z is subject to a few hard knocks on the corner of a basin and then thoroughly rubbed with sand before being washed clean in a bath. Overall the phone shaped up pretty well, but what we really want to know is where the guy got that funky black Sony robe . . .
