During the IFA 2015, Sony introduced its new equipment: the Xperia Z5, the Xperia Z5 Compact and the Xperia Z5 Premium. One of the great advantages that has characterized the last teams of the brand is the fact of being water and dust resistant thanks to the IP68 certification, however, it seems that it should not be trusted.
Yes, it happens that, although the new XperiaZ5 has this certification, Sony recommends not to submerge the device. On the official site of the product, the Japanese company said that although promotion of the water resistance of the Z5 is made, contact with the liquid is not the ideal condition for the equipment.
Therefore, the company warns that the new flagship product It should not be completely submerged under water let alone expose it to the sea, or to substances such as chlorine or beverages, since the guarantee of the telephone will lose its validity.
This warning from Sony does not make us wonder if the equipment is waterproof or not, and if not, why is it certified and why is it promoted as waterproof? Undoubtedly, the information provided by the brand contradicts the IP68 certification, which indicates that the mobile can effectively submerge up to a meter deep without problems.
