Waterproofing is one of the most important hardware feature these days. Since both Vivo Y30 and Vivo Y50 are mid-range smartphones, and it is very hard to reach a great level of waterproofing in such devices. Of course, Waterproofing Hardware requires more systematic engineering in any electronic device. This is the reason most mid and low budget phones aren’t waterproof at all as it’ll cost more to manufacture such Hardware.
Testing companies made an international Standard to provide information about smartphone Hardwear durability. This Standard is Called IP rating. Smartphones with an IP rating of IP68 are completely waterproof devices. We checked the official Website of both the Vivo devices, and there are no mentions of their IP ratings. It means officials have no confirmation about the waterproofing of both the phones.
There are several ways to test if a device is waterproof or not. Above all, the best way is to conduct the test is to do it by self. We are going to do the same, in our Vivo Y50 and Y30 waterproof test.
