My views on waterproof. In the market the phone manufacturers have stopped marketing their phones as waterproof phones. While many indictations online of people opening up the phones to look inside are showing that their phones are increasingly water resistant. For me I am still using my sony z2 even if they don’t cover water damage. You consider going cheap with a sony z2 or z3 or samsung s4 second hand phone if you need to use the phone in water.
