Sony Xperia Z2 lives after being submerged in salt water for 6 weeks

Sony was one of the first smartphone manufacturers to embrace the idea of waterproofing its handsets. We still remember how the Sony Xperia Z caught everyone's attention at CES 2013, with a display that showed off the waterproofing of the phone. The Sony Xperia Z2 happens to be certified to withstand a submersion in water to as deep as 5 feet, for as long as 30 minutes. That is fresh water, by the way. Keep that in mind for the rest of this story...

yeah sure. my friend swam with it in the sea and got it broken after a few minutes. I don't believe sony because many of its users complained with the water-resistant feature it has.
