Most of Sony's Xperia devices are both water- and dust-proof to some of the highest standards. It's a nice feature that most manufacturers have avoid, though Samsung has produced some devices like this, too. Some people don't find the proofing necessary, but it helps ensure that a smartphone won't become damaged in extreme weather or other situations. I wish most smartphones came like this.

Considering that many people take their smatphones to the beach, it makes sense to offer such protection. The great thing about Sony is that they are consumer electronics company at heart, that's what made them successful in the first place. They understand that their mobile device consumers are not going to spend all day in a clean, isolated office away from the elements. Water and dust-proof smartphones should become a standard feature for all brands from now on.
