Sony Xperia Z3 Takes and Passes the Coca Cola and Nutella Tests, but Why Would Anyone Do That?

So, it looks like this year will be known as the year of weird smartphone tests. After #Bendgate, #Gapgate and a few more others, it looks like we have another set of tests that doesn’t imply the “gates” word.

If you thought that bending a smartphone to find out how solid it is just for the kicks is a bit out of the ordinary, then you will probably laugh very hard when you find out that someone thought it would be wise to make a Coca Cola test. Yep, you hear that right. YouTuber adriansen felt there was a need for Sony fans to find out how much the Xperia Z3 could endure before collapsing. Given the fact that Sony Xperia Z3 is IP68 certified and can withstand being submerged in over 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes, one would think that our YouTuber would actually test this feat and see if what the Japanese company claims is true. But no, the test that we’re writing about involves Coca Coal and Nutella. Although he specifically says that we shouldn’t try this at home, he basically washes the Xperia Z3 in Coca Cola for a few minutes.

Upon wiping it out, Sony’s latest flagship smartphone does not seem to have any issue and it looks to be working fine. However, the buttons might start being harder to press after the sugar in the Coca Cola starts strengthening. This can be easily solved by washing the smartphone, once again, but this time in fresh water.

Well, if that wasn’t enough, adriansen though it would wise, and without question a smart thing to do, to bathe his Xperia Z3 in Nutella. After being covered in Nutella and then cleaned up with towel paper, the smartphone did not seem to have any major issues except for the sound which suddenly became a bit laggy. However, the sound problem disappeared a few moments after the smartphone was cleaned, which means whatever the issue was, it fixed itself. We can’t help but wonder why anyone would do these kinds of tests. Who does it really help to know that his/her Xperia Z3 will continue to work if dropped in Coca Cola or bathed in Nutella? Now that we’ve eliminated Coca Cola and Nutella from the list of potential tests for smartphones, it will be interesting to see what’s next. What other liquid do you think would be worth spilling on the Sony Xperia Z3 to see how rugged the smartphone really is?
