Sony XPERIA Z2 owners in Singapore have been complaining about gaps in between the panel and chassis, raising concerns about the smartphone’s waterproofing. They are also complaining about overheating issues when recording 4K video, which sometimes causes the camera app to close. Sony Mobile Singapore has responded to these issues.
Speaking about the gaps, Sony Mobile told Singapore’s HardwareZone:
We are aware of some users’ concern on the waterproofing capability of the Xperia Z2 due to the presence of gap(s) and are currently looking into this issue. In the meantime, users who wish to [sic] may bring their Xperia Z2 to any service center to have our staff conduct a water resistant test.
Speaking about the overheating issues, Sony said:
We are aware of some users encountering issues when shooting 4K video for extended periods. Shooting movies in high quality 4K resolution can make significant demands on your phone’s processor and battery life, as well as phone memory. Therefore for the best experience, we recommend you install a high capacity SD card (Xperia Z2 can take a card up to 128GB) and shoot 4K video in short bursts of no longer than a few minutes at a time.
With these problems plaguing the Sony XPERIA Z2 in Singapore, we can’t help but wonder if these issues are causing the delay in other markets, including the UK. In some markets such as Hong Kong, the Z2 launch has been pushed to June.
