Hi, I came across a few of your posts on this forum and it looks like you had an Xperia z3 before. Any reasons why you gave it up for the S5?
Oh yeah. I bought the Z3Compact specifically for a tropical trip we were taking. It had a lower max volume then the S5, but not so much that it bothered me. Anyways, I got the Z3Compact wet on the trip, by accident, but it got wet. I immediately dried it off, wrapped it in a dry towel, and put it in the beach bag. Water got inside the "waterproof" phone, and it stopped working. After arriving home, I shipped the phone to Sony, for repair. Four days after they got it, I received it back, with a sheet saying they opened it up, saw the water intrusion strip turned red, put it back together, and sent it back to me, unrepaired. I contacted them, and talked to the support line, and they said someone would call me in a day or two explaining why. Never got the call. Called back, was told the case is closed, and they won't talk about it anymore. So I'm trying to get my money back, as all this happened in the first month that I owned it. I'm waiting for the final call from my CC company, to tell me if I get to keep my refund, or if Sony gets to keep my money. We'll see.
