Whenever I hear about a phone being able to work underwater, I think that it’s great for those rare moments when you drop your phone in a sink, or spill a glass of water on it while it sits safely on your desk.

Apparently, others think “challenge accepted!” and use the phone to shoot their snorkeling session instead of getting a GoPro. Surprising thing is that it works:

While the quality isn’t on par with action cameras that are designed to take these types of shots, it’s not too bad, either! I’m surprised to see the phone handle so well underwater.

Side Note: Looking to start your own website/blog? We highly recommend using Bluehost, and you can get started now at $2.95/month, which is an exclusive deal only available here on Updato!

But as it says in the title, don’t try this at home! Just be glad somebody else made this test, electronic devices – sturdy as they may be – don’t get along too well with salt water.
