Sony Says Not to Use "Waterproof" Xperia Phone Underwater

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Sat Sep 12, 2015 10:52 pm

Despite Sony advertising their Xperia phone as being "waterproof", and having their own screenshots showing it being used underwater, they've now said through an update on their support page "Remember not to use the device underwater" and "You should not use the device underwater, such as taking pictures."

And yet look at their advertising:




And yes there's more.


Face Palm!

Well, here's hoping they get fined or whatever. This is false advertising at it's finest. (no pun intended :p) Like come on Sony...

I like how Sony's failing here. It's funny. Troll

You should not even put your phone near water. They must have just used a VR effect on there ad as while. Laughing

I wouldn't put any electronics underwater regardless.

But this is really a low blow for Sony. Like what the hell.

While waterproof devices like phones are an interesting concept, no one should be advertising something as waterproof if it is not true. That's just not right. I wouldn't use something electronic in water anyways. Sony, you shouldn't be going around false advertising like that.

That looks an awful lot like my phone, which was advertised as being waterproof as well. But all phones look the same to me, so maybe it isn't.

Why even bother calling it waterproof if it's not supposed to be used in water anyway? It doesn't even seem like a somewhat good idea for advertising.

Oh, dear. I hope anyone who bought it with the intention of using it underwater can get at least a partial refund now....
