Great article, but there are, in fact, several phones and at least one tablet that can survive in the backyard.

Sony have been leading the push for waterproof devices, with 3 phones that can survive in water. The Xperia Z, Xperia ZR and Z Ultra can all take a dip. Sony also offer the Xperia Tablet Z, an Android tablet with a 10” screen that is safe to take into the shower or a pool.

Samsung also recently launched the Galaxy S4 Active, which features a 5” screen, runs Android and is built to keep out dust and water.

What about coatings?  Companies like Liquipel, Nano coatings, Neverwet and more have some pretty neat products to waterproof electronics and other items.  I didn’t see these mentioned in the article, they would seem to be a great idea for around the pool, hot tub, spa or even just outdoors.

I’ve heard of Liquipel, though I haven’t see it in person. I’d be a little hesitant to depend on that myself, but I may just be paranoid. Plus, those coatings don’t protect the device from falls on hard pool decks.

what about the coatings? companies like liquipel, super hydrophobic intelligent coating. I didn’t see these mentioned in the article, waterproof or protective case is great and useful for outdoor or indoors protections, we used waterproof to protects the vital components of electronics. our technology was specially engineered to protect the vital component of electronics from accidental liquid damage or corrosion.
