    Maybe your phone doesn't die in water with a 7 rating but it sure does screw up ur speakers if they just get wet for a second or 2. A bottle of water spilled on the bottom of my 7 and the speakers were totally muffled for 2 days. The sound did come back but not as good as before it got wet. Hopefully the X is better.

    Which is reasonable for about pool depth instead of kiddie pool.

    Use scenario, will the iPhone X be ok on the handle bar of a motorbike in heavy rain up to say 70MPH or will it need a cover?

    Still handy when it rains, though.

    You guys must have never watched how some youtubers tested the iPhone 7 vs the Note 7 for water resistance last year when it was just launched. The iPhone 7 survived longer than the Note 7 even though the Note 7 supposedly has a higher IP rating.

    If Apple can underpromise and overdeliver last year, there’s no reason why they can’t do it again this year. Maybe even better than last year’s 7.

    And I don’t see how a glass back affects water resistance. In fact I think it made it harder than a unibody aluminium body. Because there’s now two gaps to plug rather than just one.

    Note 7 doesn't even count as a phone after last year. Null and void....

    Both case are irrelevant since neither Samsung nor Apple warranties cover water damage.

    I miss it too. Was a season of life where I got to drive down to Mexico every few weeks for a weekend of surf and water sports. Definitely would've broke an Apple Watch on those jet skis though xD

    You’re just diverting the attention away from how Apple’s IP67 rating is severely underrated. I don’t see how a combustible battery in the Note 7 affects the water resistance of the phone. There’s no correlation at all.

    Why's it so tough for people to take their Apple watch off before showering?

    Geez.

    I don't recall I did mention anything about Samsung in this thread.
    I did, however, mentioned Xperia XZ.
    Here is the link to what Sony has to say about their warranty.
    https://www.sonymobile.com/us/products/phones/xperia-xz/specifications/
    Note:
    "Abuse and improper use of device will invalidate warranty. The device has been tested under Ingress Protection rating IP65/68."
    In other words, they would honor the warranty for water damage if it is NOT abuse and/or improper use.
