Water PROOF ?


Jun 12, 2013, 2:00 PM
I hate the term Waterproof. It implies that in no situation or circumstance, can water ever penetrate the device.

More like water resistant, which is what it should be called. Unless the phone can be used at challenger depth without leaking, it is not waterproof.

Pretty much nothing advertised as being waterproof is actually waterproof.

WOW, that's all I have to say about that comment.

It is being advertised as waterproof, so it should be waterproof.

This is like advertising a bulletproof vest by saying: "Buy our new greatest bulletproof vest, it is 100% bulletproof, unless you get shot"

If you want to get technical, it can be waterproof to XXX feet in depth.

Like bulletproof... Bulletproof, except for hollow points.

I've never seen anyone call something simply 'waterproof' without any qualification, it is always 'waterproof up to so many feet'......

I guess water proof and pressure proof are the same thing nowadays. You kids are wacky!

Common-sense becomes more uncommon everyday
