There are two kinds of the test we will do namely waterproof and dustproof. Both of these tests will reveal whether the device is protected against water and dust particles or not.


This test is purely based on individual/team observation. This test will only give an idea whether a device is waterproof or not. So users are advised not to try this at home, as it might damage your device.

In our waterproof test, we will dip the device under water for 30 seconds. After that, we will observe the device for any abnormalities such as screen flickering, camera fog, etc.
