Galaxy Xcover 2 is Samsung's first shot at rugged telephony for the year, as the Android handset sports water-, shock- and dust-proof certifications.The Xcover 2 upgrades the specs of its predecessor, and throws in some neat features, like a dedicated shutter key and an Aqua mode in the camera interface that lets you shoot underwater without special housing...

You need to remember that the Xperia Z is water and dust RESISTANT... This is water and dust proof... difference there.

look! I want a mobile able to face daily situations perfectly and water resistant and with a good look I don't want an ugly mobile with horrible design and bulky I won't put it in the microwave for 2 hours for example
sony mixed the durability with good shape and performance
and see this video you will see the Xperia acro s was amazing even when a car walked on it more than twice so it's not weak

haha so full of sony right now :D
panda 123 is right, and this xcover is also shock proof, this phone is intended for people with heavy and complicated works/undertakings like mining people that when they used xperia Z, it can be destroyed immediately!!!

they still got 8 though.. functionality over looks i think..

I think it is unfair to rate this 8 when the much better though older Sony Xperia Acro S gets a 7.8.
And I just tested with a full weekend of pool, video and photo shooting. The acro s may not be shock proof but the 720p screen and 12mp camera totally compensated
And price is under 400.

Is this shock proof? I'd like to throw it around.
