why settle for iphone or Samsung when SONY has already made quality waterproof phones...FOR YEARS already?
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2016Why when people talk about waterproof phone they always bring up samsung or iphone, people son... morethat because samsung fanboy and iphone fanboy always exaggerated everything..
Why when people talk about waterproof phone they always bring up samsung or iphone, people sony has been doing it for years already this is an old feature! Just shows other brands are 2 years behind sony!
It appears that the answer is both 'yes' and 'no'. The ads all say that "spills" are covered, which is supported by their support page: https://support.google.com/store/answer/6283618 but the detailed TAC excludes "spilled liquids". So I guess that means that if the device gets wet you can have it replaced but if it gets wet because you spilled something on it you can't? Strange indeed. I guess that means just don't claim you spilled something on it!
I once dropped my HTC M7 in a bucket of water one evening (in kitchen n thought I lost it) and found it next morning. Stayed a good 7-8 hours submerged in water and survived! Still works fine!
AnonD-126854, 23 Oct 2016BTW the iPhone7 speaker also was gone even after 32min. under the water.(32min instead of 30mi... moreI guess you missed the waterproofing issues Samsung had on their S7 Active then. If they are so good at waterproifing, you would think they would do better testing on their "rugged" phone.
Why settle for a blown speaker when you can get a proper water resistant IPhone 7 or Galaxy S7. Pixel doesn't look any bit better with or without this test.
for daily usage, as long as my phone can survive heavy rain and splash-resistant/spill resistant, that's enough
He also did note that the speaker was working again after it dried, water probably only made it to the mesh.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2016Sony has been waterproofing a lot of their Xperia models long before Samsung decided to do so.... moreDidn't I mention Sony? Go and read again.
BTW Samsung made S5 water resistant even with removable batteries. Who else did it?
Also Galaxy S7 is water resistant too(in small body).
So what was the point of your comment?
My main point was, that iPhone7 lost it's speaker in only 30min(what time was in Apple's ad) but with this article GSMA are exited anyway.
I am yet to meet a person who carries his phone in swimming pool or a shower,
This is ideally a wrong way of marketing an element of a phone,
Yes phone is one of the Accessories now a days for either of the gender... And yes it's a status statement to carry Expensive Accessories.
Let's keep it simple and talk more about what are these gadgets
Indian, 23 Oct 2016No One Will Pay Money For This Ugly Design Phone ............... Even 2 Year Old Galaxy S5 Far... moreI guess it depends if someone want a device primarily for showing off or to actually use....
Personally the looks of the device is the LEAST interesting quality of any device.
The compromise between Usability, Portability and Sturdiness is what matters to me. But of course I'm an old guy way beyond teenage concerns...
But that said, I do agree that the design is more appalling than appealing...

May be, Samsung's waterproofing resulted in their exploding Note 7 as they cramped too much hardware in the tiny enclosed space...
