One Sony on the rocks, please! Xperia Z2 spends 12 hours as a frozen cocktail, check out the results (video)
The recipe for this refreshing summertime cocktail is simple - sliced lime and lemon, a few strawberries and mint leaves, and... one Xperia Z2. The IP58-certified waterproof marvel of Sony engineering was put to the test yesterday, and went for the deep freeze after being mixed up with the above ingredients.

Sony touts the waterproof abilities of its handset as able to preserve it during a dive in fresh water for more than an hour, and we've seen it pass this test with flying colors already. As if to prove that the Z2 is the perfect phone for your summer vacation, the tester below went even further. He not only plopped the Z2 in water, but also piled ice on top, and stuck it into the beach bar freezer. 

Twelve hours later, and the Xperia Z2 was taken out in the form of an ice block, frozen in time like a woolly mammoth in Siberia. Chop those rocks away, take the Z2 out, and try to power it up - what do you think will happen? Check it out in the video below.

Yeah but that is a notification of an incoming call. Every Xperia does that.

That's due to the difference between the camera's frame rate and the rate at which the LED's voltage is modulated, not because the LED was malfunctioning. A similar shivering effect occurs when you take a video of an old CRT monitor.

Yeah that's one thing. Anyway it doesn't make the device itself any worse. Let's just hope it won't re happen.

Sony needs to get their releasing strategy together. If they can achieve shorter time frame between announcing and release and also more uniform global release date, Sony can be on its way to the top spots within a few years.

Yeah. Their problem right now is not the products, but pretty much everything else lol.

If that doesnt proof Z2 it's an outstanding product then IDK. Sony has the chance, the means, and god knows it has the engineers to make Sony a real threat to Samsung. Here in Portugal I'm glad to see more and more Xperia devices, from low to mid and flagships.

Prove* Idk what will* Samsung and sony use the same camera modules in their phones and sammy gets better pictures .. shows who has better engineers. Also sony has bad screen to size ratio. Great for sony. I actually would love to see sony grow. Hope sony gets it clumsy pieces together

The Z2 and S5 have the same horizontal sized bezels. Sony would be great if they didn't bog their phones down with all their useless sony apps. I'm in no way a Samsung fan as I hate them for their Tounch Wiz.

Sure about bezels? Actually.. touchwiz is the most productive and feature rich skin out there. They just need to make it look mature.!

Sure about bezels? yes Z2 has 69.19% vs S5 70.12% If you remove the 1/2.3" sensor and replace it with 1/2.6" sensor, stereo speaker to mono speaker on the back, and reduce the battery (from 3200 mAh to 2600 mAh). the Z2 would have better screen ratio than S5. And until this day i never seen any samsung phones with better screen ratio than Xperia ZL. i agree Toucwhiz is the most feature rich skin but it also has the worst real life performance if you turn on all the feature in samsung phones it will drain the battery really fast, overheating, laggy performances (this is my real life experiences with samsung phones S4 and Mega 6.3).

Hmm.. possible! What about camera? Why does sony produces inferior photos despite having same module? Battery drain, overheating, lag ... I have heard it all from many people and I find it utter BS. I am using my phone for more than a year now.. and it still has to over heat.. or force close a system app on me.!
