Google Pixel lasts up to an hour underwater despite only IP57 rating
When the much talked about Samsung Galaxy Note 7 first launched, it was talked about by a lot of people and part of the things that got a lot of people excited about this one was the amount of sensors that was packed into one single device and as well, the kind of water and dust protection rating that it carried – the IP68.
With this kind of rating, a premium flagship was set for the market because it meant that it could stay underwater for up to 30 minutes and about one feet of water likewise.
When Google then introduced its Pixels with just IP57 ratings, it was a little shocking to most of us, given the asking price again.
However, the Pixels have shown that they can be stretched to the limit because in a new YouTube video, the device was placed in a bowl of water for up to an hour and it still survived this test, an amazing discovery given that IP57 only guarantees you protection against spraying water.
Even though it was only a bowl of water that was used, the device still held its own pretty well and we should start giving Google and HTC less stick about the rating they opted for.
