    This seems to be a common problem with water resistant phones & devices.

    First all this is dependent on having all the proper covers, blogs, etc in place and functioning properly. If they are just a little off or worn out then you have water entering and water damage. Second I look at it that your taking a huge risk regardless of the OEM selling and advertising the phone as water resistant up to xxx amount of depth. Time I'm sure plays a factor too that the longer the device is subjected to these conditions the seals and such may tend to give out.

    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.

    It's water resistant to fresh water without strong chemicals. It's not water resistant to sea, pool, ocean water because of salt/chemicals. You haven't read the manual? It's everything there in what water you can put your phone. It's the same with every other water resistant phone on the market, read manuals people
