Best water resistant Android phones you can buy
One trend that's been growing in the smartphone market is water resistance. As users take their handsets with them almost everywhere they go, it’s great to know that they can live through an accidental dunk in the pool. Here are a few phones that are the best water resistant Android phones that you can buy as of September 2017.
The *Galaxy Note 8* is at the top of the list because it’s the newest and most premium, but it’s also the most expensive smartphone. Samsung has been a leader in getting its flagship phones high IP ratings so that its customers can use the devices almost anywhere they go. Samsung continues this trend by making the Note 8 IP68.
The *LG G6* also comes with an IP68 water and dust resistant rating. The best part about this phone is that its price has dropped to the point that it’s half of the cost of the Note 8.
If the Galaxy Note 8 is either too big or too expensive, you might want to check out the *Galaxy S8 or S8+*. Both of these handsets have almost identical specs to Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone, but you will be missing out on the dual rear-facing camera setup and 2GB of less RAM.
The LG V30 has everything that people loved about the G6 but included performance improvements, a 32-bit Quad DAC, high-sensitivity microphones, and a 16MP camera sensor featuring an f 1.6 aperture.
HTC U11 features a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and a top-of-the-line camera. Its main differentiating feature is its squeezable frame that acts as an input method for launching any of your applications or hardware functions.
Unlike the rest of the devices on this list, the HTC U11 is only rated at IP67, but that should still be enough to protect it from the rain and taking a quick shot under the surface of your pool.
And if none of these handsets fit your fancy, you can always check out
LifeProof’s collection of water and dust resistant cases . These cases do add a bit of bulk to your phone but are handy if you’re ever heading somewhere where your handset might get wet or dirty.
