In Splash proof test, we will test the device to withstand an accidental water splash to see whether the device survives in such condition. Since Moto G6 Play does not have any kind of proper IP68 waterproof ratings, it might or might not survive this test.
So when we subject Moto G6 Play to artificial water splash, the device seems to work fine. No damage is registered at all. However, since the device is lacking an all body oleophobic coating, it becomes slippery in such conditions. With this test, we can conclude that the device is indeed splash proof to some extent.
