It’s amazing to see someone drop a smartphone into a glass of water to check the water resistivity. How else would you know? Watch Maria Sharapova droping Xperia Play into a glass of water :
Ok. Ignore the comment about Sharapova playing. And also about the fact she doesn’t look anything like Sharapova.
We have at least two phones which are rugged and water resistant. iBall floater is a feature phone which we dropped into a bucket of water. Motorola Defy is another water resistant and dust resistant Android phone.
