by: Bams SadewoJuly 24, 2012

Some smartphones are made more durable than others, but it doesn’t mean you should let your imagination run too wild on devising ways to torture your phone — unless you have the money and time to spend. Cue the following videos, which will show just how tough the compact Android phone that goes (see what I did there?) by the name of Sony Xperia Go can be.

Waterproof your device with Liquipel

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 6, 2012

Nano-coating could make Galaxy S3 water resistant

by: Bogdan PetrovanMarch 16, 2012

Making gadgets resistant to water has been a big trend this year, with various manufacturers choosing to fit their smartphones and tablets with water protection systems.

But not all producers use the same technology – some devices, like the Panasonic Eluga, are waterproofed, meaning that their sensitive internal components are shielded from the elements through a gasket or some other type of seal. As a drawback, waterproofing adds bulk to the device and the seal can wear in time.

Other devices are water resistant, meaning that, even if their inner workings are not insulated, the device will withstand just about any splash. This is done through coating every [...]
