Make A Splash With These Waterproof Mobiles

Oops, i dropped my Nexus into a puddle. It’s raining and I shake it, hoping it hasn’t suffered any damage. Maybe I should just get a waterproof phone?

Haven’t we all wished technology had advanced enough to not be challenged by a little splash? Sure, we have water-resistant phones today but where are those really waterproof ones we need when we spill our drink on it? Or drop it down the toilet?

We scouted through the best smartphones launched recently and those that are going to be launched this year, to bring you this list of mobiles designed for the swimmers, water babies and yes, us clumsy ones too!

Check them out and share your experiences with smartphone vs water battles with us!

Samsung Galaxy S6 ‘Active’

Samsung’s smartphone, unveiled last month and rumoured to be launched soon here in the UK, has a rugged exterior so even if you drop it while chatting with your mate while having a bath you won’t have a panic attack.

A stronger version of the S6 (which isn’t water compatible at all), the ‘Active’ boasts an octa-core 64-bit processor and packs a whopping 3500 mAh battery. Samsung claims in The Independent that the body of the smartphone meets military standards and can be submersed under 1.5 metres of water for 30 minutes.

Moto G

Motorola’s uber popular series has an IPX7 waterproof rating, which is what good GPS units use. As an indicator of immersion capability, the IPX7 is superior to IPX6 certification by allowing for heavy splashing and rain, as opposed to splashing from a puddle or a quick dunk.

Sony Xperia Z3+

Sony’s latest Xperia – the Z3+ – floats above the rest with an IPX8 rating and exquisite looks, along with a solid battery life of 2 days. Let’s say no more and invite you to watch this video instead:
