Waterproof Mobile Phones

Water damage is one of the most common types of physical damage mobile phones are subjected to. That’s what Vice President Ben White from Optus reported. While smartphone insurance grants some amount of coverage, the actual cost of taking out insurance tends to bloat the handset cost. This may not be a cost-effective option for those who are considering a budget. Plus, the hassle of having to make a claim and waiting for repair or replacement can be quite inconvenient. Fitting water resistant mobile phone cases and skins is wise, but you may actually do better by shelling out the extra money towards getting some sort of waterproof mobile phones to begin with, especially if you are a heavy phone user who handles his phone 24/7.

Water Protection with the iPhone 7

Apple officially gave its first water-resistant claim with the release of Apple iPhone 7 mobile phones. On fine print, the rating of iP67 means the phone can remain underwater up to a depth of one metre and for 30 minutes maximum. Quality of audio, however, lost some richness to it. The screen remained intact, the buttons remained fully functional and the microphones worked as intended. The iPhone 7 also handled underwater photography and videography well. The camera focus and sound recording remained clear.

Water Protection with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Samsung lovers have a number of choices for a waterproof mobile device; you can get either the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. S7 Edge gives 5.5 inches of display while S7 models give you 5.1 inches, both granting Quad HD quality. For the S7 Edge, you get a 3D glass that curves on the sides. Camera features are the same on both models. You shoot with a 12MP dual camera. You can capture panoramic motion. The 3600 mAh battery can accommodate your game apps. The rating on these Android phones is iP68. You get extra coverage of half a metre. That’s 1.5 metres deep of water resistance for a maximum of 30 minutes.
