Samsung is trying hard to acquire the budget smartphone world with the launch of budget device3s such as Galaxy A10 & A10s. With these devices, customers seem to be very interested as they will be enjoying premium brand products at a fraction of a price. Today in this article, we will talk about the waterproofing capabilities of the new Samsung Galaxy A10s. W will also conduct Samsung Galaxy A10s waterproof test to find whether it is waterproof or not. So without further a do, let’s get started.
Samsung is offering IP68 waterproof features to almost all of its flagship range smartphones. However, we have never seen any waterproof features in any budget-oriented smartphone from Samsung before. So customers are very excited and want to know weyther the new Samsung Galaxy A10s is waterproof or not. Well, the new Galaxy A10s is an upgraded version of the original Galaxy A10. So many customers have hope that Samsung will provide waterproof and dustproof security to this device.
Did Samsung Introduce Galaxy A10s has Waterproof and Dustproof Ratings?
A modern smartphone is only considered waterproof if it has special IP ratings for the device. The IP Code (or International Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as Ingress Protection Rating*) consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. It mainly tells us whether the device is splashproof or waterproof. Every officially waterproof smartphone has IP ratings which prove its waterproof features.
Anyway, you will be slightly disappointed to notice that the new Samsung Galaxy A10s doesn’t come with any official IP68 waterproof ratings. This means that the device is not waterproof at all. At this price range, it is not surprising that the device is not waterproof. However, it might be splashproof and dustproof. So, we will still conduct our Samsung Galaxy A10s waterproof test which will reveal whether the new Samsung Galaxy A10s is waterproof or not.
Samsung Galaxy A10s Waterproof Test
Since the official website doesn’t contain any reliable info about the device waterproofing capabilities, so we are going to conduct our own test. However don’t keep any high hopes, since it is a budget smartphone there are very fewer chances of it being a proper waterproof device. Get ready for the Samsung Galaxy A10s waterproof test. But before that, have a look at device specifications:

After conducting this test, we can say that this phone is not waterproof. So you must take proper care since nay accidental water or coffee splash can ruin the device and your sensitive data along with it. We strongly suggest you to buy a waterproof or full body case for the device. Since Galaxy A10s is not officially waterproof, you must take proper care while sitting near water ponds, lakes, beaches and swimming pool.
Samsung Galaxy A10s Dustproof Test
In our dustproof test, we will keep the device in a sandy environment with lots of grain and sand particles with a running fan around it. This situation mimics dust storms and will check how the device holds in such conditions.
|I/O ports||Little dust, but ports still work fine|
As you can see from the test results above that the new Samsung Galaxy A10s is fully dustproof. This is because it doesn’t have any moving mechanical parts like pop up camera etc.
