Hello MIUI Fans,

A few years ago, you'd be hard-pressed to find an elegant, premium phone that was also waterproof. Aside from Sony's Xperia phones, most waterproof phones were clunky-looking with midtier specs.The new crop of flagship Androids boasts of letting you take photos in the pool or not worrying about your handset when it rains.


Almost all smartphones are vulnerable to liquid, unless they’re waterproof. There are a lot of new devices available in the market offering water resistance and some are completely waterproof. These days, though, most high-end flagships come with some level of protection against water. In addition to the latest Apple iPhones, Samsung, Google and LG all have waterproof marquee handsets that satisfy the IP67 (or higher) standard.


With so many companies diving into this feature, waterproofing may soon become an industry standard, and gone forever are the days when mere water-resistant coatings and seals were exclusive to bulky, rugged phones. Instead, it may soon come down to how much more protected one device is than another.

Is It Necessary to Have Water Resistant Phones?

Repliers to this thread before February 8th, 2018 will receive "MIUI Happy" Medal!

Of course, it is necessary..
Our phone is so vulnerable, imagine if we accidentally pour some water or the phone drown in a bathtub, that will directly damage the internal component of our phone..

It's not necessary, but it's a big, big plus. Most people go outside and there's rain or snow sometimes. Then, you can drop your phone into your sink, lunch, bathtub or toilet. Or, outside, drop it into a puddle of water, mud, snow etc. You can spill your drink over your phone (or someone else can do it). Some people accidentally leave their phone in their pocket and put it in the washing machine. Some people get drunk and fall into a river. Or into the sea. Some people sweat a lot with their phone in their pocket. And, some people have kids. You never know.
