Anyone know how well the nanocoating on the D4 works? It this the same coating as liquipel?
Well, I spilled coffee all over mine yesterday and it still works fine. So either the nanocoating works well, or I just got lucky!
It's probably a variant of a durable water repellent like you see on expensive mountaineering gear like Patagonia or Marmot equipment. Results in water literally being repelled off the surface. Only issue is that it is only durable, so it wears off eventually.
absolutely not the same, that stuff can go scuba diving.... the d4 coating can protect against heavy sweating....i would highly recommend you dont do that otherwise your phone may be swimming with the fishes. I think the nano coating is just for the screen itself
Yeah that is for splashes th op post was a submersion. Hey if I am wrong I am willing to admit it. Anyone feel like making a side by side to the op post video don't forget to take the back cover off. I don't think I would submerge it, I think that nano coating is really just rainx to be honest that motorola uses

Also, read and listen to the OP video, they say DONT DO IT, so liquipel isn't any better or worse than the P2i stuff. Im not going to take mine swimming to demonstrate, Ill let P2i buy a demo unit.
Yeah, given the two videos, I wouldn't compare the two equally.
And also, just because liquipel says "Do not do this", doesn't mean they don't want you to do it. They want you to, thats why they demonstrate it. They want you to go to people and say "Holy, sh!t, this thing makes my phone work underwater! Watch!" They just say not to to cover their own ass and not get stuck with $650 bill at the end of a bad day.
Agree you can't compare the two videos. In the video it states it is for protection against those unexpected spills and splashes, not submersion, so would not test it that way. It also says powered by P2i so is different from Liquipel and is not Rainx. B-Unit, what you want them to do with a demo unit?
Read the linked article, they use the same coated tissue trick Liquipel was showing off at CES. Its the same thing. Probably a different 'nanoparticle' but same principle.
I was responding to tdpolo's idea that someone submerge their Droid4 and make a video, I suggested it would be more prudent to wait for P2i (or Moto) to demonstrate rather than risking one's own phone.
This is what happens when you submerge a nanocoated phone (cliffs: it destroys your phone)
i was being a smartazz i would never submerge my phone .... in the liquipel one they did and took the battery cover off and put it back under. i was saying that the coatings are different. i think the droid 4 just has the screen coated not the entire board and parts... i may be wrong but the way i was reading it just the screen was covered
