Sony Xperia Z: waterproof and chocolate-proof?

Culture
-Okay, so, we're here at Dandelion Chocolates. You are kind enough Greg to let us submerse the Sony Xperia Z, which I have here in my handy-dandy apron pocket and multiple kinds of chocolate. -Indeed, we're going to use both chocolate directly out of melanger. The melanger is what we used to grind the cacao and the sugar down to make the chocolate itself and then we're also gonna take chocolate from the tempering machine and that's the final chocolate that we make bars out of. -The Sony Xperia Z as you probably know, the selling point for this phone is that it's supposed to be waterproof, so we obviously thought while waterproof must also mean chocolate proof? How likely do you think it is working here in this factory everyday that one of these phones could end up in one of those big vats of chocolate. -At some point, phones have certainly ended up in vats of chocolate not here, but somewhere. -You have to really careful. -We're very careful. -So, we should get right to it and before we start, I just wanna say that I really like the Sony Xperia Z and so I hope it's okay I'm gonna give like a little mwah, like a blessing. Okay, first up, we've got a little chocolate container and we're just gonna pour some chocolate there. -All right. -Oh my goodness. Watch your shoes everybody. Oh my God. Oh, sorry Sony. Remind me again what temperature this chocolate is at? -This is probably right around 125 or 130 degrees right now. -Okay. -Yes and there's a phone buried somewhere in there. -There is a phone in there so we get a spoon and get it out. Again, it's [unk] first. There it is. Oh my God. This looks so cool. [unk] Come on out Sony. It stuck to the bottom a little bit. The back is totally on chocolate so that's good. I mean [unk]. This phone is like the funniest thing I've ever done. See? This is where once again the awesomeness of the raised power button comes in to effect as if it comes on. Oh, totally. I can scroll through the menus. It doesn't seem particularly works for wear. Now, this chocolate is so thick that there's really kind of no way for it to get into ports But certainly, the water proofness should prevent that. I'm gonna try to take a picture. Camera is working fine, okay. So, I think test 1 a resounding and delicious success. Okay, so we have tried our kind of raw, viscous chocolate. Now, we're gonna for tempered chocolate. The temperature is a little cooler, more about like 110 degrees, but it's a lot less viscous. It's meant to be made into a bar so I think it could be a little slippery, but also get in the cracks a little more. We're gonna put it in our container here then I'm gonna cover it with tempered chocolate and then it's gonna go into the freezer to set up into a nice yummy chocolate bar. Here we go. Oh wow, that's a lot-- Oh gees. Oh-- Oh, that's so much chocolate, not a nice thing to do to a phone, right? Come with me over here. I wanna make sure my phone is well and truly coated and we're gonna make it into a chocolate bar by putting it in the freezer. Oh, beautiful! Here we go. See you in 15 minutes. Let's see if our Xperia Z chocolate bar is nicely setup. Oh, yeah. That is looking delicious. It's so healthfully right in the shape of a chocolate bar. Oh yeah, look at that. Nice! That's chocolate phone art and it looks super tasty. Very hard. Very chocolatey, really hard on there. It's not actually mouthful. Okay, I like 'em. I think there is really only one way to break this chocolate up and get it out of here and starting a crack a little, but I'm assuming we're just gonna have to do like a mini drop test. Give me one more. Okay, one, two, three. It's kind of like ice. We can give it as [unk] to its origin. Okay, really the key is just to uncover our power button, which I think I have done. It's like a little stuck, a little frozen/encrusted. It doesn't really wanna push. Oh, I got it. It thawed. How's it doin? Oh! It's okay. It's fine. It's on. That's great. But you know there's still really a lot of chocolate on here so I think it's gonna need like a little bit of a box. Let's go wash it off. Let's do waterproof just like the least of the things that could happen to it today. And there's hot water, really peel this chocolate back here. Oh yeah, we're getting some meltage. I see our screen is going a little crazy. Yeah, chocolate is messy stuff As you might imagine considering it's supposed to be a waterproof phone, it's not having too much trouble at the water here. It's mainly just the chocolate in its joints. Okay, let's see. I will say this is pretty-- It is pretty remarkable to give a phone like a complete sink back and have it just not have a problem. It could use in detailing, but all in all I think our Sony Xperia is he has passed the chocolate test with flying colors.
