Four water-proof phones 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 are 4 waterproof smartphones I would recommend.

iPhone7/7 Plus

Although iPhone7/7 Plus almost looks like the same as iPhone6s/6s Plus except for adding two new colors and redesigning back antenna, there are still some new impressing features. Aside from iPhone 7 Plus coming with dual rear cameras for the first time, what appeals to me is that iPhone7/7 Plus finally come with IP67 rating water and dust resistant which allow for briefly dunking in the water. Besides, iPhone7/7 Plus come with the most powerful specs especially the A10 processor that is almost twice as fast as 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 resistance, taking iPhone7/7 Plus into account is reasonable.

Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung made Galaxy S5 feature IP67 2 years ago, and now Galaxy S7 Edge is also IP68 dust and water proof (30 minutes in water over 1.5 m deep). As the best android smartphone after Galaxy note 7 suffered its disastrous failure, not only is Galaxy S7 Edge equipped with high-end specs but also has the gorgeous appearance with the edge to edge AMOLED display and a metal body, but also the performance of its cameras is very likely to be the best of all the smartphones including 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 2,900 mAh 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 donít like Galaxy S7 Edge, then you canít ignore Sony Xperia XZ.

Nomu S20

After introducing 3 high-end flagships, now I am going to recommend a budget rugged phone 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 with 3000 mA battery along with a fast charging feature. Nomu S20 has IP68 rating just like Galaxy S7 Edge, but unlike those three above, Nomu S20 is a professional rugged phone. It is able to survive a drop from 1.5 meter height, which those high-end flagships are too fragile to survive. Also, -20℃ to 55℃ working temperature range allows you to use it in most of the places you can imagine. You can feel free to use this handset without worrying in the most unexpected conditions. Whatís 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.
