To the best of my knowledge, water resistant itself is not water proof... But nice to see Italy standing up for customers.
It is my firm belief (and I'll defend it to death if you argue) that if a customer is sold an iPhone with a IP rating of 30 minutes, 1.5 meters, then the customer should get warranty if those conditions are met, because it was a selling point of the phone. A common swimming pool accident shouldn't compromise the phone.
And the strong handed manner in which we are tracked in modern world, it should be easy to verify where a customer was. 1.5 metres of water can't be found in some homes, as far as I know...
A super (far better) solution is to have a cleverly placed dry cloth layer before the phone's internals, just beneath the USB/speaker/mic slots, if this patch gets wet due to IP conditions not met, the phone should switch off automatically to prevent damage...
Otherwise, all companies will easily compromise quality later on and IP rating would be tomfoolery of the customer. And leave Apple, what about other, cheaper phone's manufacturers?
Yes it's true apple liquid protection is best so why apple not giving defect warranty for liquid damage
CptPower, 02 Dec 2020Well nicely said.
I said simmilar think on many topics where people bragging about useless I... moreThanks, I am captain unpopular opinion, so I know how you felt, people hate the harsh truth.
The issue is all the misconceptions, many think the IP rating is what make the phone water resistant, so for them saying "no IP rating" is like saying "non water resistant phone", while it actually depend on the build quality, not the certification.
Another one is people not realizing that IP certification isn't waterproof, in fact it isn't even meant to prove a device can operate underwater, but only that a device have chances to survive if it was accidentally encountering liquid.
It is crazy how, when faced with hard proof, most keep considering their personal view as fact and proof as opinion...
Note 20 Ultra, 01 Dec 2020It is definitely misleading if they don’t cover it under warranty for liquid damages. It can’t... moreAll of those ads show the phone being submerged in water, not the phone sent to the local store to cover water damage.
Consumers assuming if their phone takes water damage, they automatically have warranty is the same as consumers assuming that their crash-resistant car crashes, the manufacturer will provide warranty.
Well since no phone company or Vendor can guarantee your phone is 1000% waterproof not only water resistant and no phone warranty covers water damge i realyl think water damage resistance or IP certification is completely useless and would and should not be inluded in any description of any phone on this sites or at your local Vendor.
Demongornot, 30 Nov 2020Hahahaha, this isn't just beautiful, it is magnificent !
Thinking about all those peop... moreWell nicely said.
I said simmilar think on many topics where people bragging about useless IP resistance but noone ever heard me.
They just said i am fool and dont understand simple things.
Kudos for you.
Well if 200 countries troughout the world fills same like Italy did Apple gets 2 billion fine which would be nice.
10 millions for being not trustworthy and lying customers is like a joke for a many trillion dollar company.
Water resitance means drop on screen only you can put it under water but not too because they never told that waterproof.. Lmao
I do not trust their anti-trust. Why even have Ads in Italy??
Really OMG. What if i show a smart baby, drinking milk powder ads and can solve puzzles. So ALL BABIES get smart?? Huhhh.. THINK man.. think. If these anti-trust gets their way, they will proceed to charge all Ads in Italy..
Demongornot, 02 Dec 2020I'll try one last time :
I only do it about feature that are everywhere and that account... moreIt needs to be as you do right?
It cant get more egoistic than this,
But hey we dont understand s**t.
If that is the right way to discuss than dont cry like a baby when someone treats you the same way.
AnonD-955101, 02 Dec 2020Well there in nothing wrong fighting for features you(as you call it) praise.
But caling ever... moreI'll try one last time :
I only do it about feature that are everywhere and that account for so much of the market that other solution aren't available as a result.
In other words, I want the things that are on way too many smartphones to get LESS often made so other options can exist.
It does NOT mean I want it to disappear.
When a feature is letting other options breath, which mean not taking 50% or more of the market by itself while being invasive for the users who don't want them, I am NOT ANYMORE doing this to them.
I love pop up, but if tomorrow 90% of the phones in the market get it, I'll defend other options and say why there should be less phones with a pop up.
If almost no phones get a punch hole anymore, I'll defend it for those who want it.
And as I have already told you a bazillion times, you can't just say "Please big phone company sir, I will like you make less of this and more of that" with a children voice, it NEED to be harshly done, it NEED to be brutal, violent, it NEED to be a slap on the face, it NEED to be as I do, stating what is wrong about that, that is the ONLY WAY to raise awareness of the necessity to make diversity on the market.
You can't just respect a feature that invade everything and praise it while asking less of it is done, you NEED to talk about why it shouldn't be that often put into phones to give space for other features.
How hard is it to understand ?
[deleted post]so its ok we call u apple hater , or android fanboy , because u hate apple ... ?
Demongornot, 01 Dec 2020It isn't discussion, it is me trying to do something positive for everyone and you being ... moreWell there in nothing wrong fighting for features you(as you call it) praise.
But caling every feature you dont need or like useless,stupid and also people who dont agree with you, or that thing of yours telling everybody that they dont understand, you need to teach them, they praise the features?
No there is nothing to praise about, we just find some features usefull and enjoy using them.
There is no need for exaggeration as you do very often.
Bezels :useless and waste of space without biometrics
Ffc, ud ffc:stupid and dangerous unless its pop up.
Waterproofing :stupid, useless and unnecessary.
Simply arguing on all fronts with disparaging comments on almost every opposite opinion.
Are you getting it?
And once more :dont be surprised when people reply to you with the same lever of arogance and hostility. Nothing personal but many times you're asking for it.
