How to make Sony Xperia Z soup: simmer gently (video)

How to make Sony Xperia Z soup: simmer gently (video)
The Sony Xperia Z has seen its fare share of torture tests, but it's been bathing with swimsuit models to compensate for the frequent waterboarding it's been subjected to ever since Sony announced a flagship Android with waterproof certification.

This latest episode takes the cake, however, as someone is not just dunking the phone in water to prove its durability, but actually cooking soup with the device as the chief ingredient. 

Needless to say, the phone worked afterwards, despite the simmering temps, but check out the whole inquisition video below.

Even if I had a Xperia z I would not put it in there, why would I put a s4 or any other phones?

How I miss the old days when Sony was alongside Nokia ruling the phone industry then known with an "ericsson". Now it's closer than ever to wake up from its sleep and bitch slap other manufacturers, esp. the darn fruit. On an unrelated subject, can't wait for the ps4. :D

Sony needs to change a little bit to wake up, i have seen several Xperia Z videos and the phone seems laggy somehow and that is with a quad core S4 pro

A shark will swallow it, then 8months later, the shark will be caught and a happy butcher will find the Phone in the shark's belly. He willput it on and voila it comes on with battery warning sign. He chargés the Phone and he becomes the cool owner of an xperia z.

i believe in sony quality but i think this is just stupid. a phone that big can hardly be accidentally dropped into a pot with boiling food. well, at least in my case. as far as i know, opening the back panel of the xperia z only takes neat from a hair dryer. putting it into boiling is just dangerous. the back may detach and the battery and other parts get exposed to the heat. it's a waste of food. a waste of an expensive device.
