Is tightness important in water resistance? For most, it is, Yes!
You will not surprise anyone with the waterproofness of a smartphone, although there are not so many models on the market that can boast of such a characteristic.
If you look closely at the lineup of some manufacturers, you will find that there are no devices with IP67 / IP68 water protection and they are not at all eager to release a waterproof gadget as soon as possible.
Many companies choose to offer water protection in their flagship models. For example, these are the OnePlus 9 Pro, Oppo Find X3 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, and the flagships of the Samsung Galaxy S21 family.
Naturally, users have to pay decent money for a smartphone in order to safely go to the beach or to the bathroom. It is quite logical that in this situation the question arises, how important is the water-resistance of mobile devices for users when purchasing a flagship smartphone?
The Androidauthority resource asked its readers this question, and according to the results of the survey, it turned out that the majority, and this is 34.9%, do not consider water resistance a priority, but at the same time they are sure that moisture protection is a blessing when it comes to flagships.
33.9% of respondents were in favor of the fact that waterproofing in a smartphone is an important and necessary function for them, and they would not consider buying a flagship that lacks it.
Another 24.1% said water resistance is one of the key characteristics they will look for when purchasing a premium smartphone. And only 7.5% said that they absolutely do not care if their gadget is protected from water or not.
What do you think? How important is water resistance to you when it comes to a flagship?
