So if you do not care about IP rating, you should go for this smartphone. However, I must warn users that the device is not waterproof or splashproof at all. There are no official IP67 or IP68 ratings for the device, which strongly suggests that it is not a waterproof device. Furthermore, all of our tests failed because the device does not have any active water-resistant coating or any other protective gear to protect it against liquid.
