Is Your Phone Really Waterproof?

water damage Jul 12, 2022

SUMMER is finally here!

And with summer, water sports, camping, river and beach activities are happening.

Despite most cell phones nowadays have some degree of waterproofing, water can still do some real damage to the phone.

Those of you that own a more recent Galaxy, iPhone® or Google™ phone might be curious about what kind of water-resistant technology their phone uses. Wondering if your phone is really waterproof? 

Spoiler alert: The short answer is, no. 

Don’t get us wrong; if you spill a few drops on your iPhone XR, or decide to use your Galaxy S8™ in the rain, you’re probably okay. The newest phones are designed to survive short liquid exposure without shorting out. But if you’re thinking of taking up competitive swimming and want to live-stream from the river, lake or beach, don’t plan on using your phone. 

While tech giants have strived to keep your expensive tech protected from small spills, ultimately, it’s still an electronic device filled with sensitive circuitry. By providing seals and gaskets to prevent moisture from seeping in, manufacturers are slowly perfecting new ways to keep phones from frying after a little liquid exposure. 

Even after you dry your phone, you may notice that some things aren’t working properly. What do you do? Do you think it can be saved or do you think you have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone?

The good news is that YRD is on your corner.
