Nowadays, the mobile phone has been used almost as long as we are awake. At times, rain and sudden splashes of water may cause damage to the internal mechanism of phones, leading to degradation of the phone. Waterproof means how much water your device can resist. Here we are trying to bring some of the best waterproof phones in 2021, which will amaze you with their latest waterproof features.
iPhone 12 Pro Max
It has a water and dust resistance rating of IP68 like all other phones on our list, but that’s not what’s made it set its place on the top of our list. Unlike other phones with an ip68 rating, the iPhone 12 Pro Max has been tested to last under 6 meters of water level for a maximum time of 30 minutes, which is so far the maximum underwater depth a smartphone of such calibre can last.
Apart from its incredible water resisting capability, being powered with Apple’s A14 Bionic (5 nm) chipset, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is insanely powerful. The company claimed that it is protected against water splashes from all directions because the IP rating in this phone is maximum.
This phone gives one of the best waterproof quality output even under the pool to date, costing around $1100.
iPhone 11 Pro Max
Despite being a phone launched in 2019, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has grabbed the second position of 2021’s smartphone list. The reason is, it is rated IP68 water and dust resistance and can last underwater up to 4 meters for 30 minutes! It has a hydrophobic coating near the surface of its screen.
It has Apple’s A13 Bionic (7nm+) chipset with complete waterproof properties in the circuit board, which can compete with some flagships of 2021 even after almost two years of its release.
Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
It is the latest smartphone on our list. With IP68 water and dust resistance rating, it can last up to 1.5 meters underwater for about 30 minutes, which is enough for a regular user. The inside of the phone contains an adhesive gasket around the corner of phones. And because of that, that resists water to pass through. On the front, there’s a 40-megapixel wide lens. Its price is about $1100.
LG V60 ThinQ 5G
It is a 2021’s flagship phone by LG, and it is the only phone on our list with is rated ‘MIL-STD-810G’, including an IP68 rating. ‘MIL-STD-810G’ is a standard military rating given to a phone after it is tested through harsh conditions like submerging underwater for hours, sprayed water from the tiny holes of the phone to evaluate the estimated time it can resist water.
It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G (7 nm+) processor. It has a triple back camera costing around $450 only!
So, these are the best phones with a high waterproof property. However, very few manufacturers commit to warranty about water resistance because water can degrade the adhesive and chips.
Nevertheless, we have enlisted some phones you can use even underwater while swimming and capturing your memories to make it livelier.
