Water resistant phones

A number of phones are advertised as “water-resistant”. Be aware that when phone manufacturers say this, it only applies under a special set of circumstances. A phone’s resistance to water often depends on the clarity of the water, the depth of submersion, and the length of time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future for which it is submerged. We wouldn’t advise submerging any smartphone in water unless it is absolutely necessary.
