You’ve seen smartphones touting water resistance, splash resistance and all the other fancy buzzwords that are used to convey one basic message: Your smartphone should survive an unfortunate meeting with water.
But how important is that? Also, what’s the difference between water resistance and plain splash resistance? And, what’s that peculiar code that’s sometimes next to a manufacturers water resistant rating and sometimes not? Well, here’s where you can get your answers
Looking for a phone that is seriously tough? The Caterpillar S60 is a rugged smartphone that’s designed to survive hard drops, water submersion and it even has “Predator” vision. It first announced during MWC 2016 and you can finally order one here in Malaysia.
The iPhone is turning 10 years old by the end of this month and there’s one feature which Apple has reluctant to upgrade for the longest time. Despite having excellent battery life from a relatively small battery capacity, Apple has not made any significant changes when it comes to charging.
While other smartphones are pushing faster charging and wireless charging support, Apple is still bundling a basic 1Amp power brick with its current top of the line iPhone 7 Plus. The way you charge may soon change with its upcoming iPhone due later this year.
With MWC 2017 happening next month, LG is about to reveal its successor of the LG G5. To pique your interest, they have just released a teaser video which claims to bring your ideal smartphone to life.
iPhone 7 is finally official and this marks their 10th generation since its debut in 2007. The iPhone 7 and its larger iPhone 7 Plus are not radically different from its predecessors but it does come with several firsts for Apple.
Having a waterproof smartphone not only gives you peace of mind, but you can finally take it to more places like a bathtub or a swimming pool. With more manufacturers jumping onto the water resistant bandwagon, Xiaomi has refrained from doing so. In an interview, he gave two reasons why Xiaomi is holding back from waterproofing their devices.
You know those times when you’ve accidentally dunked your smartphone in water and proceed to charge it shortly after? Nope, us neither. But still, once you’ve made a device water resistant, it doesn’t hurt that you’d prompt your customers that charging is imposible (yes, say it with a Spanish slang) – when it feels that your smartphone is a little on the wet side.
CAT doesn’t just make heavy machinery and they are also in the phone business making rugged devices for industrial environment. Apart from the glam devices launched at MWC 2016, the big yellow company has also released the world’s first thermal imaging smartphone with the CAT S60.
Not only it gives you cool predator vision, it is built to last exceeding military spec.
Competing in a market with Apple and Samsung is definitely tough to do, more so when you have affordable Chinese brands chipping away at your market share. You have to juggle between innovating, designing, marketing and setting price points. So far, Sony has been on the short end of the stick but they were once in a very different position.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge had opened a new chapter for Samsung with its premium glass and metal design, along with top specs that hold well to this very day. Of course, there are many that frown upon its compromises. It was their first flagship to not have a removable battery and most critical of all, it lacks an expandable microSD slot. If you were disappointed by the Galaxy S6, there’s a lot to look forward to on the upcoming model.
