Not really, it's more or less standard in Japan and has been for a long time. This applies to all Japanese mobile manufacturers.

but but... in that case Nokia 5210, released 2002.
Sure, there has been waterproof phones, but Sony equiped it`s flagship devices with waterproof sealing, so Sony brought it, you could say, mainstream.

If going by flagships....then that would go to Motorola RAZR in 2011.
For the recent trends...for smartphones.....we can leave the Nokia phone out...lol.

One device, which probably was sold to few thousand people. But there are a lot of Sony phone models and even my own Tablet Z is waterproof.
P.S. Btw, what do you mean, by those recent trends?
56. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
The RAZR is a Droid.....those have historically been popular on Verizon. I'm pretty sure more than a few thousand people bought one...
59. kareivis (Posts: 45; Member since: 23 Jan 2012)
The difference is, that Sony devices are available globally.

Seeing picture looks like Nokia style.
But nothing is like Sony. Best waterproof device so far.

Two things Sony should do to be successful like. 1st patent waterproofing phones before U KNOW who does. 2nd Sony get your act together and put your damn devices on every carrier in the U.S.

This shows how Samsung was bothered abt S5 for waterproofing!!

if only more midrangers were waterproof

I hope there'll be a successor of Xperia Go and Galaxy XCover 2.
34. Genza (Posts: 539; Member since: 12 Mar 2014)
Xperia V and ZR is still a good options if you looking for cheaper waterproof phones.
54. buccob (Posts: 2573; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
Any old flagship becomes a good midranger eventually...
Even the Acro S can take into consideration, depending on your needs... it suits mine just fine

I believe it was SIEMENS who created waterproof trend, remember M35i?

We're talking about smartphones here.

Not without any proper OS at that time like Symbian, WM, Palm, etc.

Waterproofing is a great thing!
lol a rainstorm lasting 247 days? It's a miracle that the whole Hawaii didn't become one with the ocean lol.

247 days... only if they had a Z2 back in the day haha. I'll pick up and move after the 100th day of rain...

Water is Sony's best friend. :)
Sony should keep using this waterproofing feature, as it adds more durability to the phone. When my phone (Xperia Z) is dirty, I wash it with water.
Also, this feature is what a man want on a phone, because you can watch porn in the shower. :P

I have porn on my Z1
