With the way that technology has advanced in the past few years, it should come as no surprise that so many manufacturers have done everything they can to up their game. From extremely powerful processors to great cameras and awesome graphics, smartphone developers have gone to great lengths to provide their clients with the best possible features. It was only a matter of time until somebody would release the Best Waterproof smartphones.

Top Three Best Waterproof Smartphones

It was Sony that managed to add this feature to a mobile device for the first time and to be frank, it has proven to be quite useful. You can now enjoy your summer at the pool or beach without having to worry about your phone getting wet. Let’s take a look at the top three Waterproof Smartphones.

Sony Xperia Z

The Sony Xperia Z is without a doubt the Best Waterproof Android Phone I have ever seen. It was released early this year, and its stunning design has won the heart of many customers. The 13-megapixel camera and Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core will be more than enough to enhance your experience. Furthermore, it is not only dust-proof and waterproof.

You can actually take photos or HD videos underwater if your heart so desires. Unlike the Samsung S4 active, this phone has an elegant design, powerful processor, and wonderful features.  The only drawback to this phone is its short battery life. As a matter of fact, most Sony phones have a problem when it comes to battery power. If you are the type of person who uses his smartphone intensely, make sure to keep a charger with you at all times.

Iphone 5

The second contender isn’t a waterproof phone in the true meaning of the word. The Sony Xperia Z can be submerged underwater for 30 minutes, whereas the iPhone cannot. Nevertheless, the iPhone 5 can make excellent use of its 8-megapixel camera to capture stills and videos underwater if it is protected with the Incipio Atlas case, and as long as it is not submerged in deep water.

The protective case costs about 100 dollars, and it is worth its money. There is no need to tell you that the iPhone has a superb menu and design, the best touchscreen on the market, and an attractive set of capabilities. I may not be the biggest fan of iPhones, especially because I believe that they are usually over-priced, but there are certain unique features that these phones offer.It is one of the Best Waterproof Smartphone 2014.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

Number three on our list, Samsung Galaxy S4 active, is a beast! It is one of the world’s most popular and powerful Android flagship smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. Its camera may have been downgraded from a 13 megapixel one to an 8 megapixel one, but it was enhanced to capture underwater HD films and images. Needless to say, it has one of the strongest batteries, a speedy Snapdragon 600 processor, and a 1080 HD video recorder. A word of advice would be to be careful with drops and dings, as it is a little rugged.S4 active is one of the best Samsung Galaxy Waterproof smartphones.

In conclusion, Sony Xperia Z is without a doubt the most capable Waterproof Smartphone, but in this show-down, I wanted to present the top three smart-phone manufacturers of the moment.

  1. Nice to see iPhone 5 in the waterproof smartphone list. iPhone completely changed the mobile industry when they first launched the touchscreen smartphones and they always bring new technology to the consumer with their new iPhone versions.
