What’s a waterproof phone?

They aren’t very light, in fact they are known for their bulkiness which protects them from falls, liquid or any other material that might damage the hardware. In fact, they are perfect for high risk sports and are often used for hiking, climbing, and canoeing among others.

The Telstra Tough Max 2 is a re-branded ZTE smartphone that offers protection against drops, knocks, dust and yes, water.

Huawei P30 Pro: IP68

[clear]

Once a critical darling, the Huawei P30 has suffered a reversal in fortunes in recent months due to a controversial US trade dispute that saw Huawei briefly banned from Google Android. If you’re willing to overlook all this (and the $1599 price tag), the P30 Pro remains one of the best smartphones that money can buy. It excels in all the areas that matter including battery life and photography. It’s also IP68 certified which means it can survive complete, continuous submersion in up to 1.5m of water for 30 minutes.

Here are the best available plans:


Samsung Galaxy Note 10+: IP68

[clear]

The new big boi on the bloc, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10+ is arguably the best smartphone all-rounder on the market – especially for fans of stylus-optimised UIs. It’s also one of the few IP68-rated phones without an external case. This translates to submersion in up to 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes. The Galaxy Note 10+ isn’t out until next week when it will cost you a minimum of $1699 to buy outright.
