The 10 cheapest waterproof smartphones in Italy


The world of smartphones today is very varied in terms of available alternatives, with models that differ in different price ranges based on the technical specifications they offer. Among the many aspects that characterize smartphones in the current market we find that waterproofing.

Smartphones are objects newspapers, used in many situations and contexts and, even if unintentionally, can easily come into contact with water. Having a waterproof smartphone therefore provides a extra degree of safety compared to its duration over time.

In this article we go to see what are the cheaper waterproof smartphones in the current market in Italy. The ranking is ordered by price, starting from the bottom, and refers to the current prices on the market. Clearly these could also vary in the short term.

The first thing to clarify is what we mean by waterproof smartphone: clearly it is a device capable of resist contact or temporary immersion in water, which represent the largest part of realistic contexts in standard daily use. To define the concept of water resistance, we are helped by the IP certifications, an international standard that regulates resistance to external agents by electronic devices. To learn more about IP certifications, we suggest you refer to the article we have dedicated to it.

In this ranking you will find only certified smartphones IP67 or IP68, that is “smartphones totally protected from dust, sand and in general any small solid body. Just as they are protected from temporary immersion (maximum 1 meter depth for 30 minutes)”. On smartphones currently on the market we also find minor categorizations, but which are not sufficient to define a device waterproof.

Furthermore, it should be clarified that certified waterproofing refers to situations in which the device is subject to accidental events. It should therefore not be understood as the possibility of using the smartphone while diving, for example. Certifications, as you may have guessed, have different limits such as the duration of the dive and the type of water encountered. Finally, it is good to consider that waterproofing can over time come lessprecisely because the materials that guarantee protection from water can deteriorate with the use of the smartphone.

So here it is the 10 cheapest waterproof smartphonessorted from least expensive to most expensive (but keep in mind that prices can always fluctuate a little).
