Four water-proof smartphones you’ll want right now

Lots of people tells you electronics and water cannot mix. If you work outdoors, tired of being afraid of having something spilt on your precious phone; or you just want to Tweet while you shower. Whatever the reason, an IP67/IP68 rating smartphone should be at the top of your shopping list. The following is 4 waterproof smartphones I would recommend.

water-proof smartphones

iPhone 7 / 7 Plus
Although iPhone7/7 Plus have released without big surprise on the appearance which almost looks like the same as old version type iPhone6s/6s Plus except for adding 2 new color and redesigning back antenna, there are still some new features impressing people. Aside from iPhone 7 Plus coming with dual rear cameras for the first time, what appeals to me is iPhone7/7 Plus finally come with IP67 rating water and dust resistant which allow for briefly dunking in the water after Apple’s opponent Samsung has long since made its flagships feature IP67. Beside, iPhone7/7 Plus come with the most powerful specs especially like A10 processor that is almost double faster than iPhone6s/6s Plus, it is safe to say iPhone7/7 Plus is one the best smartphones in the world. When you are looking for a smartphone with water and dust resistant, taking iPhone7/7 Plus into account is reasonable.


Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung has made Galaxy S5 feature IP67 since 2 years ago, and now Galaxy S7 Edge is advance in featuring IP68 dust and water proof over 1.5M and 30 minutes in the water. As the best android smartphone after Galaxy note 7 suffered disastrous failure, not only is Galaxy S7 Edge equipped with the high-end specs but also has the gorgeous appearance with edge to edge AMOLED display and metal material on its body, and the performance of its cameras is very likely to be the best of all the smartphones includes iPhone7/7 Plus. Galaxy S7 Edge definitely deserves being considered by everyone who is into Android phones.


Sony Xperia XZ
Sony Xperia XZ as the latest addition to their flagship X family features the general rectangular slab-like design, with glass up front, an all metal back plate, and of course, an IP68 rating for resistance to dust and water. In terms of specs, Xperia XZ comes with a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of on-board storage, 23 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras, bears 2,900mAh battery which is good enough for a full day of use. This device is priced at $699 which is in the same price range as Galaxy note 7, I would say the price is a bit high, but if you want a high-end smartphone with IP68 rating and you don’t like Galaxy S7 Edge, then you can’t ignore Sony Xperia XZ.

Nomu s20

Nomu S20
After introducing 3 high-end flagships, now I am going to recommend a budget rugged type named Nomu S20 which comes with a 5-inch HD display, 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras. Under the hood, this phone comes with MediaTek quad-core 4G LTE processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM and is packed by 3000mA battery along with fast charging tech. Nomu S20 features IP68 rating just like Galaxy S7 edge, but unlike those three above, Nomu S20 is a professional rugged phone. It is able to survive by dropping from the 1.5 meter height, which those high-end flagships are too fragile to do so. Also, -20℃-55℃ working temperature allows you to use it in most of the places you can reach, you can feel free to use this handset without worrying most of unexpected conditions. What’s more, $169.99 price point make it the most affordable waterproof smartphone. If you do not have hundreds of dollar to spend, maybe Nomu S20 is a good choice for you.
