    Default is there a waterproof phone coming better than the Casio?

    Any rumblings of a good (like the Samsung S4 Active) water-proof phone coming soon? I'm about up for my new every two and my Razr Maxx is sucking, but I don't want to get a non-waterproof phone if one should be coming soon.

    Thanks!

    Before someone jumps on the S5 as water resistant and not water-proof, it is rated to one meter under water for 30 minutes. Should be okay for a water drop and rinse.

    probably not enough water protection if someone accidentally falls into the pool with the phone in the pocket?

    Our fearless leader (Phil Nickinson) had a S4 active in the pool a few months ago....I watched his mobile nations YouTube vid and he was swimming with it.....sounds like it's pretty water resistant to me.

    No guarantee, but it isn't like the seal would immediately disintegrate once you go over the rated depth. It would just start to leak. So if you fetched the phone right away and put it in rice then there is a good chance that it would be OK

    You may also want to check into the Sony Experia 2. I read an article which can be Googled which is how I found it after another article I read about the phone which is rumored to be coming to VZW as an exclusive. These are rumors for the most part. I would also think the Note 4 might have water resistant and dust resistant when it hits shelves as well. I am waiting to see what happens with the Sony because of the camera.
