    Besides the LG g6 , What other modern smartphone in the past 3 years is overall the best smartphone with water resistance for the money?

    I've never owned a smart phone that was water proof. But my wife loves her S8+. If you can find a deal on it(we got hers for $679 unlocked from Best buy) then it's a great IP68 phone. And I agree that the latest iPhone has got to be up there but it is pricey.

    Glad to know that these phones are water-resistant. But I am still hesitant to give it a test run though.

    Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge. iPhone 7/7 Plus. Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Sony Xperia XZ.
    WiFi is always promoted using 'theoretical' speeds and by this standard 802.11ac is capable of 1300 megabits per second (Mbps) which is the equivalent of 162.5 megabytes per second (MBps). This is 3xfaster than the typical 450Mbps speed attributed to802.11n

    Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best water-resistant phone. My friend has it.
