    Taking it to the beach should be ok if you are careful. Sand can scratch the screen if she doesn't have a high grade screen protector on her phone.

    I would not allow for the phone to float in water, I don't think it is designed to "go swimming" but can withstand drops into water, rain, etc.

    Have fun!

    Yes we went to goa(india) a coupla weeks ago & did some photos underwater at the beach & u cant save it from sand,if u see the edges of the phone closely,ull notice it has gaps including the earpiece mesh & bottom mic mesh.so the deal is,the sand gets in there but doesnt harm the set.u need to rinse it later with tap water & if need be,remove stuck sand with air spray(room temp) dont use a hot air blow dryer,it might damage it.otherwise the set is gud to go on a beach.

    It is my understanding that salt is corrosive. But since the XZ is sealed, it shouldn't matter. It'll be good for the occasional dipping or wading through sea water. Just don't take it scuba-diving or snorkeling.

    I would, however, wash it with fresh water after being exposed to the beach. Salt water has this tendency to form salt crystals when left to dry and these could get trapped in the phone's orifices (speakers, mic, etc.). Could be nothing... could be bad. Best just to wash it whenever possible.
