Sony Xperia Z survives dust and liquid torture, slow motion camera tells its rugged story
The Sony Xperia Z is a first of a kind, a flagship Android device that is also dust and water resistant, and Sony France demonstrates all this beautifully in poetic slow motion. Splashing wine on your device has never looked this good.

The Xperia Z survived in mint condition after getting maltreated with all sorts of liquids and slammed with glass-like pieces mimicking dust. Something not a single other high-end Android on the market can brag about.

Good news is the Xperia Z has just arrived in our office and we will soon bring you our detailed coverage with a full-on review and comparisons, so stay tuned!

Even if GS4, Optimus G Pro, and M7 comes with beefier hardware Xperia Z is already ruling the house.

i think the only one which can make trouble for it is S4. others can't be accounted as great rivals.

I would love to own an Xperia Z phone with the great design but I'd miss out on the GNote 2 screen size. Seriously considering the Xperia Z tablet (Which I REALLY HOPE is REAL) since I already have a great phone. Now I just wish I have cash when the tablets roll out.

So far, it doesn't look like the Z will be available on VZW. :-( Oh well.

Looks like AT&T won't be picking up the version of the Z until the fall, but Sony will most likely be selling an AT&T HSPA+ and LTE compatable version from their on line store.

Yeah, it seems like Sony didn't read the memo about expanding the number of carriers that carry your toys.

"Something not a single other high-end Android on the market can brag about."

Allow me to brag about my Razr Maxx.............

I've TRIED to scratch my screen, numerous times, with all of the keys on my keyring (I purposely demonstrate it for customers)

My phone has met face-to-face with wood floors, asphalt, and brick (those were accidents lol)

Soda has splashed on it, it's seen plenty of shower water drips, and the best of all.............it's been through the rain a dozen times (I ride a motorcycle and keep my phone in my front shirt pocket. So yeah...driving in the rain)
