Best Waterproof Phones to Buy in 2022

Perhaps everyone knows that water in general is deadly to technology. But it doesn’t necessarily have to happen that way, as there are plenty of companies that have made waterproof phones. In other words, you won’t feel uncomfortable using those devices on a rainy day. That doesn’t mean you can put those phones in your bathtub, but still, getting a few drops of water on them shouldn’t be a problem.

Today we’ve listed some of the best waterproof phones you can buy in 2022. Feel free to explore the options and choose which one is right for you:

Samsung Galaxy S22

Phones from the Samsung Galaxy S22 series are great examples of top waterproof phones! We’ll talk about the Ultra model of the lineup.

The phone comes in IP68 dust/water resistance and the rest of the specs are amazing too. There are two versions of RAM (8GB and 12GB), an Exynos 2200 processor, a massive 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display and a 120Hz refresh rate, and more.

The cameras are also impressive when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. A 108MP main camera setup is mounted on the back – a wide camera accompanied by a telephoto lens and a periscope telephoto lens. The main camera setup can even record 8K quality videos.

The selfie camera reaches 40 MP, which is more than enough for all those real vloggers who today outnumber grains of sand from all the beaches on Earth!

Apple iPhone 13

The iPhone 13 flagship line of phones built by Apple is another great example of waterproof devices. These gadgets are also resistant to both water and dust with an IP68 rating. We will mainly be talking about the champion iPhone 13 Pro Max model here, as it is arguably the best of the lineup.

Pro Max supports up to 1TB of storage, which means a lot for a phone! But the A15 Bionic processor undoubtedly takes the cake, as it is arguably the fastest chipset ever built by Apple.

iPhone 13 Pro Max also stands out for its Super Retina XDR OLED display at 120 Hz due to its refresh rate, Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and more.

There’s a 12MP quad-camera setup, with features like dual-pixel PDAF, sensor-shift OIS, 3x optical zoom and more.

OnePlus 10 Pro

Who Said Chinese Brands Are Dead? OnePlus is one of those companies that proves otherwise every year, and the OnePlus 10 Pro model is a great example of a powerful flagship. It came out in January this year and it mostly impresses for its fast charging capabilities, powerful 5000mAh battery, LTPO2 Fluid AMOLED display of 120Hz and more.

Of course, the OnePlus 10 Pro can also do its thing if you drop some water on it. The phone is only IP68 dust and water resistant when it comes to T-Mobile.

OnePlus 10 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and there are two versions of RAM available: 8 GB and 12 GB. The cameras also deserve all the attention – the device has the main configuration of 50 MP which is also capable of recording video in 8K quality. There’s also a powerful selfie camera for vlogs, which is set at 32MP.

Google Pixel 6 Pro

The Google Pixel 6 Pro certainly deserves to be on this list as well, as it is also IP68 dust and water resistant. A large 6.71-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 12GB of RAM are some of the phone’s strong points.

A 50MP triple camera setup is also mounted on the back: wide, telephoto and ultra-wide sensors. Features like Dual-LED flash, Pixel Shift, Auto-HDR, and panorama also exist.

The selfie camera consists of an 11MP sensor and is equipped with panorama and Auto-HDR. Both the main and selfie cameras reach a video recording capacity of 4K.

Apple iPhone SE (2022)

If you’re looking for a compact phone that you can maneuver with just one hand at a time, consider giving the Apple iPhone SE (2022) a try. This gadget also includes the A15 Bionic chipset built by Apple, one of the best processors of the Cupertino-based giant.

iPhone SE (2022) is IP67 dust and water resistant and the display is the most interesting part. This iPhone model has a screen of only 4.7 centimeters in length and is of the Retina IPS LCD type. The phone also has 4 GB of RAM and there are also three versions of storage: 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. Our assumption is that it’s pretty tricky these days without a phone with at least 128GB of space.

The cameras that the iPhone SE (2022) device has are not too advanced, but they may be enough for someone who isn’t really interested in taking pictures. However, there are also some powerful features that the phone’s cameras have: Quad-LED dual-tone flash, HDR and panorama.

Besides the cameras, here are other features that those who get their hands on an iPhone SE (2022) can take advantage of: Fingerprint (front-mounted), accelerometer, barometer, proximity, gyro, and compass.

There are many other interesting waterproof phones as the smartphone market seems to have no limit! Feel free to tell us in the comment section if you would choose any of the models on our list, or if you prefer other phones!
