Four water-proof smartphones of 2015

Posted by

If you hang around water a lot and risk having your smartphone drenched or dunked, perhaps you should be looking at buying a water-proof smartphone. has got the list you need. Have a look at the following water-proof smartphones of 2015:

Water-proof smartphone

  1. Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo – water proof up to 1 metre and 30 minutes
  2. Sony Xperia Z3+ – water proof up to 1.5 metre and 30 minutes
  3. Sony Xperia M4 Aqua – water proof up to 1.5 metre and 30 minutes
  4. Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) – water proof up to 1 metre and 30 minutes

Honorable mention: HTC Desire Eye – water proof up to 1 metre and 30 minutes.

Though a 2014 device, I threw in the HTC as a bonus, just so you have more variety to pick from. The reality is that not too many brands offer water-proof smartphones. You will almost always be stuck between Samsung, Sony and Motorola.


  1. my bad. if we’re talking strictly 2015
    Alcatel OneTouch Go Play
    Alcatel OneTouch Conquest
    SONY Xperia Z5, Z5 Premium, Z5 compact
    SONY Xperia Z4v
    SONY Xperia M5
    Kyocera & CAT also make IPx certified devices

  2. It’s a rather niche market if you ask me,as a selling point it would be way down the list of most buyer’s priority features,just an added bonus..

  3. I was actually going to mention the CAT waterproof phone, and JCB also do one or two as well.

    BUT…how easy and affordable are these in Nigeria? Has Sony even bothered to have any kind of presence in Nigeria yet, like LG and Samsung?

  4. Really??? Alcatel still makes phones???
    Thought they went mute and diversified like sagem and siemens.

  5. Best said. I actually dont see myself going to the market and specifically requiring for a waterproof phone…
    Am I ever going to drop the phone in water even as it is waterproofed? I doubt!

  6. am not a life guard or a sea explorer or fisherman.. jes for the phone falling inside water threat, ain’t gonna go out specifically to buy a phone for that, then I should buy a kevlar phone cos phones fall or peeps get shot. oh well

  7. your phone doesn’t need to be dropped in water to suffer water damage. no one is asking you to buy a phone just because it’s waterproof or water resistant, those aren’t their selling points. but if you’ve ever had to replace a phone because of water damage you’ll understand why it’s useful, besides the phones don’t cost more than their competition just because they’re waterproof

  8. only story I have heard off of water damage without water involved is on this site. for Sony tho it looked like their selling point

  9. Oh yeaaaaa, I read about it on here that sagem was changing names but I didnt even think it was infinix. Good for them, nigerians are digging their stuff.

  10. It’s not their selling point. Just a major point. They give us same benchmark specs other manufacturers release and they add waterproof to it. I think that’s all, asides a little increase in price.

    Sony’s main point might be their designs…the all glass front and back ish!

  11. exactly, even without IPx ratings, SONY’s Xperia Z line would still be impressive. ideally waterproof smartphones would be the norm rather than a luxury, but the way the corporate structure is set up, any features that may reduce replacement rates and thus future sales will not be encouraged

  12. Mobility blog, through a partner, has advertised phones like the Asus Zenfone 2 and the Moto G in the past. You can make a formal request and I’m sure it’ll be attended to.
