DON’T DO THIS AT HOME! MWC 2013 official Sony Drop Test. Of course I got to take a whack at it too lol. This phone is very well built and incredibly strong on all levels. Front is most likely Dragontrail glass by Japanese supplier Asahi, while the back is most likely Corning Gorilla Glass.
Make sure to keep all your ports tightly sealed when exposing to the elements! If water gets passed any of the flaps, a moisture sensor is waiting to claim misuse, seemingly at your expense. Sony doesn’t want to claim responsibility for misuse. Still this is a great phone that will appeal much to the accident prone and adventurers.
