Is Oppo F7 is a Waterproof Device?
Oppo latest flagship F7 doesn’t come with any official IP rating. However according to tests and various experiments, it is noticed that the smartphone is indeed waterproof, but to only a limited extent. But this is not enough to know the full extent of its waterproofing capabilities. It is important to know for customers whether they are buying a proper waterproofing device or not. As a smartphone company who advertises their smartphone being camera smartphone; waterproofing seems to be a necessity. So today in this article we are going to check whether if Xiaomi Mi 8 is a waterproof device or not.
Oppo F7 Water Splash Test
When the latest flagship by Oppo is subjected to minor water droplets, it works flawlessly. However, when large water droplets or a mini shower is thrown on a smartphone, it starts to malfunction. This only includes the ghost touch from the display as it does not support touch inputs on a slippery surface. After wiping up the screen with a piece of micro cloth, everything seems to work fine. So Oppo F7 is splash resistant. But what about Water immersion test?

Oppo F7 Water Immersion Test
After the water splash test, it is time to test the water resistance to the full extent. When subjected to water immersion, no air bubbles were detected. This means that the device is not trapping any kind of moisture while immersing in water. However while in the immersed state, the user cannot operate device’s screen. This makes the device unusable under water. So people who were looking to take some great shots underwater might feel a little bit disappointed now.
I/O Waterproof Test
The main component of checking a device water-resisting capabilities is to subject its I/O ports in water for few minutes. In Oppo’s F7’s case, there is not any kind of problem with I/O because of water. However, I recommend users to quickly dry up the headphone jack and charging port in order to avoid unnecessary damage or sparking.
Oppo F7 Washing Test
When subjected to shower water or a continues stream of water, the device starts to trigger random apps. This is because of ghost touch issue. The camera and screen work perfectly under water. However, the user can not operate the screen under water.
So it turns out that Oppo F7 is entirely waterproof. However, there is no official documentation or declaration of this fact by Oppo. It is splashproof to some extent. However, it will cause the device to behave abnormally with several ghost touches
