  1. In your i/o water tests your table shows that the ear piece and mic does not work, does that mean once the phone was removed from the water source the ear and mic didnt work or does it mean that while under water these things didnt work?

    1. The device is not officially waterproof. But according to our test, it is dust resistant and splashproof to some extent. Avoid going to pool, lake or beach with this phone.
