Sony Xperia Z water resistant dunking test
Certainly it’s not something we tend to see on a showroom floor, Sony set up a simple contraption that basically dips the lower portion of the Xperia Z in a small pool of water. Pressing the button, the machine comes to life and lowers the arm, where the handset is attached to on the end of it, which then places the device briefly in the menacing water. Needless to say, most handsets would incur some serious damage doing this, but seeing that the Xperia Z is IP57 certified, the occasional contact with water isn’t going to fizzle out this beauty.
Knowing that, it’s going to be interesting where people will start using the handset – heck, maybe even the shower at this point? Well, whatever it is, the water resistant aspect of the handset is truly unique that’s not commonly found with high-end devices. So if you’re ready to see some splashing action, check out the video below!

Yeah. I am totally with rabih_z. How do we even know that is water? They need to submerge the whole phone in that liquid and show a few fish swimming in that water. The fish have to be fed periodically and they need to poop regularly. We should also have a couple of vets standing by to certify the health of the fish and ensure they survive in that liquid (which they say is "water").

im ok with the fish since 3M has mad a fire retardant liquid that looks like water but its not, and any electrical can be submerged in it without any harming.
this liquid was on display in Gitex Dubai 2012.

Its not even important if its water, as long as its any liquid, it will damage (or in this case not damage) the phone in the same way.

Now you don't have to worry when taking your phone out when it's raining or when you accidentally spilled some liquid into it! Great job sony!

This is one of those awesome features you'll hopefully never need, but be glad it's there just in case.

why not throw the whole thing in water? that is really water resistant.
