    only company he really hates is apple. I have watched all his videos since he started phones on his channel. He bashes any flaws regardless of company. BB is nothing special, you should watch his stuff.

    Ip67 is splash and short-term accidental immersion resistant. IP68 is submersible.

    In other words something rated IP68 is expected to survive CONTINUAL immersion, where something rated IP67 is expected to survive accidental, short-term immersion (e.g. being dropped into a toilet) along with lesser liquid insults (e.g. being rained on.) Both IP67 and IP68 typically have conditions associated with them as well (e.g. "depth less than 1 meter", "all covers must be secured", "mating and unmating of connectors while submerged prohibited", etc.)

    The first digit ("6") refers to dust resistance ("dust-tight"; no ingress permitted.)

    In my opinion people should take these claims with a grain of salt and treat their phones as if they weren't equipped as such. Look at it as hopefully a "free pass" if the inevitable does happen.

    IP67 doesn't mean that the device is completely water proof.

    You should look at the battery tests that GSM arena does. The Motion is bested by lots of phones . That does not make it bad but not exceptional.

    Yeah but nobody said it should survive drowning in the ocean, he just says compared to other IP67 device he thinks Motion has not very much adhesive material.


    But perhaps they developed a very good one that is more resistant than others.

    Quantity != quality. Never mind that excessive amounts of adhesive can make a phone essentially unrepairable.

    And again, the salient point here is that an IP67 rating does not imply or state that you can use it underwater or intentionally submerge it and expect everything to be ok. It means that it should survive accidental immersion and lesser environmental insults, such as getting wet if you have it in your pocket and get caught in a nasty downpour -- or if someone spills a beer on it in the bar.

    If you want a device that can survive intentional immersion then IP68 is required, and pay attention to the footnotes, because with both IP67 and IP68 there always are footnotes (such as "all covers must be properly secured", etc.)
