On my recent trip to Hawaii, I broke two of my smartphones while using them in sea salt water to take videos of corals while snorkeling, I broke my Galaxy S9 Plus and my Pixel 2 XL. In this video, I show you what happens if your smartphone seal breaks in sea salt water and also how to minimize damage from salt water corrosion by disassembling both my S9 Plus and Pixel 2 XL. I’ve taken all my waterproof phones(with IP67 or IP68 rating) diving in swimming pools and even in 100+ degree temp spa many times but I have NEVER actually broken a smartphone from water until last week.
LG G6 is IP68 certified and in this freeze test, we freeze the phone for near 24 hours to see if it can survive to see how well its waterproofing works. We have seen that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge survived our freeze test before so if LG G6 is just as good, it should be able to easily survive this test.
Here’s an extreme test of Galaxy Note 7’s IP68 waterproof design, we put the phone in 100+ degree of hot spa water for an HOUR! Will it blow up?
