Waterproof: Can Your Smartphone Do This?
The blogosphere have been deeming cell phones as magical devices that can pretty much do almost anything-they have really contributed on changing our lives drastically. Each year competitors in the mobile industry keep surprising people with what their latest flagships can offer. Need I mention how important these gadgets are?
And so, smartphone users are then obliged to keep their phones protected as they are vulnerable. In most cases, smartphones can do a lot of things, and swimming isn’t one of them-or is it?
When you thought that handheld devices cannot swim, here is the list of mobile phones that will give you a paradigm shift. Now, you won’t have to shudder every time you drop your phone in a body of water-or you will if it had flown your gadget away. Check out the list of waterproof phones below:
#1: Sony Xperia Z1
First on the list is the Sony Xperia Z1 since it houses the top notch with a brand new 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm. This 5-incher also boasts a Full HD display and a whopping 20.3-megapixel back shooter. And finally, you can capture those underwater moments beyond 1m or for as much time as you like.
#2: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
And so, here is Samsung Galaxy S4 Active to steal the limelight from Sony Xperia Z. This handset is the waterproof version of the Samsung Galaxy S4-only S4 Active has lesser features. Nevertheless, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is very decent with its underwater credentials. With its good photographic results, you’ll definitely love snagging photos underwater for up to 1m for 30 minutes!
#3: Motorola Defy +
As what its name implies, Motorola Defy + defies the idea of usual phones being waterlogged once they are drenched into the waters. This 3.7-incher with 480x854px screen definitely boasts that it is the most recent rugged mobile that has a considerably cheaper price than that of others! With a 5-megapixel shooter at the back, snapping shots won’t be that bad. Not only that this phone is waterproof, but it is also scratch-resistant and dustproof.
#4: Lenovo A660
This 4-incher is arguably a better handset as it gets cheaper compared to Defy + with only 3.7-inch. Not only does it have the same resolution with Defy +, but it also has a 5-megapixel rear camera. It also has a front-facing camera, but it’s just 0.3-megapixel. Nevertheless, it is geared with 1 GHz dual-core processor and includes Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that definitely spell out that it’s worth a try. This handset is waterproof up to 1m for 30 minutes.
#5: Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 has almost the same specs with that of Lenovo A660. Powered by a dual-core processor, this 4-inch phone boasts its all-round toughness that can keep up with all your hardcore adventures. Not only is this phone waterproof, but it is also dust and shock-resistant. Galaxy Xcover 2 has also an inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0 that lets you connect all your BT wireless devices for up to 50m away. And like the others, this phone is waterproof to up to 1m for 30 minutes.
Water is not something mobile back cases can protect, but good thing waterproof phones have now hit the shelves! So, get ready splashin’!
