TUFF Phones | Leading retailer of waterproof mobile phones
Chances are that you know of at least one time when you or someone close to you – whether a parent, child, sibling, friend or colleague – dropped a smartphone in a pool, puddle or lavatory, spilled a drink on it or found it drenched in a bag, perhaps because of a leaking drink.
As such, it is surprising to say the least that waterproofing is not yet a feature of the mainstream smartphone. Sure, there are now mainstream models that are beginning to fill the void, but the Galaxy S8 and the Xperia range are still very much the exception at a time when most handsets will begin to malfunction if you so much as expose them to a tearful telephone conversation.
Of course, there is always the option of a waterproof mobile phone case, but the reality is that such a route represents only a half-measure and offers nothing like the protection provided by a bona fide waterproof mobile phone such as those available from TUFF Phones.
According to a survey by SquareTrade, an American extended warranty service provider for consumer electronics and appliances, two of the five most common phone accidents involve a device being "immersed in liquid" or having "liquid spilled on it".
As such it is somewhat astonishing that manufacturers are not doing more to give consumers what they require in this regard. In fact, given that so many phones suffer the same fate, is it reasonable to suggest that every phone should be waterproof?
Consumers have the right to feel aggrieved that manufacturers aren't doing more to ensure their devices are waterproof. After all, the vast majority of watches that are equivalent in price to a smartphone are waterproof, so it is clear that the technology is there; perhaps the only thing that is missing is the will.
Fortunately, there are manufacturers out there who do make waterproofing a priority. In fact, so much so that if you buy a waterproof phone from TUFF Phones you can rest assured that it will come with a warranty guaranteeing its waterproofness.
