Now Is Your Chance to Buy a Waterproof Smartphone
Technology is amazing. We have come a long way since the days of leaving your phone in a bag full of rice overnight and hoping for the best after it fell into some water. Nowadays, you can just buy a waterproof smartphone and never have to worry about wrecking your phone or a bowl of perfectly good rice ever again. In the article below, we will explain what “waterproof” really means and will provide a showcase for one of our waterproof phones.
What Does IP68 Mean?
Most phones that claim to be waterproof will come with an IP (Ingress Protection) rating. All phones are technically rated in this way, but you wouldn’t want to advertise a “non-feature” by emphasising how poorly your product will perform after being submerged in water or exposed to moisture, which is why you would only usually see the rating on phones or other devices that want to draw attention to waterproofing as a feature.
The IP rating tells you two things: how resistant it is to dust and how waterproof it really is. The first number indicates the dust resistance, while the second number indicates water resistance. The higher the number, the better the phone is at surviving exposure to those conditions. The highest rating for dustproofing is 6, but the highest rating for waterproofing is “9k”, but that rating is reserved for products that are designed to withstand high-pressure water jets or other kinds of high-impact water sources. The highest practical rating for a waterproof phone is thus still 8.
For example, the IP68 rating showcased on some of our rugged phones indicate that they are highly resistant to dust and water and can still function normally after being underwater (around 1 meter) for a short time (at least 30 minutes). So, if you drop your phone in the pool or the toilet, you can simply retrieve it and forget it ever happened. Your phone will still work.
