    Check this out. We found a video of the new Moto G 2015 version being dunked in a bowl of water to test its IPx7 water resistance. To clarify, what IPx7 means is that the phone is not dust-resistant (indicated by the "x"), and that it is certified to be submersible in up to 3.28 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes (indicated by the "7").

    The video shows the phone... you didn't think we would spoil it for you, did you? Let's just say that you shouldn't go diving with your Moto G 2015, but it can easily survive an accidental dunk in the toilet or fish tank.

    I wish the Moto X Pure were ipx7 rated as well. I may consider buying one of these if they release a model that works on VZW, otherwise I think I'll end up with a Z3v or a Z4v
