Refurbished Xperias still water-resistant?

hi, i would like to ask whether or not refurbished xperias still retain their water resistant abilities. Is there a standard for refurbished devices? Who can refurbish Sony phones? Can i bring a refurbished unit to a center to get it checked and get them to reseal the phone so that it can be resistant again? If yes, how much does it cost?

Hi @XperiaZ7, welcome to our forum!

As far as I know, all devices that are water resistant and that are repaired at an authorized service centre will keep their water resistance, however as this is a Global user based forum, I recommend that you get in touch with your Local support, as this may vary between regions. They will also be able to provide you with information about the location of authorized service centres in your area, local service routines, consumer laws and warranty.

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face
