The OnePlus 7 Pro isn’t IP rated, but the company says the phone is water resistant despite the absence of an IP rating. We put their claims to the test to see if this is true.

    The OnePlus 7 Pro is not IP rated because of cost. Would you prefer to pay more for a phone that has an IP rating or is cost a factor for you?

    Smartphones' users should not use their phones in the pool anyway… Why would anyone uses it in the water ? At least, water resistant is good enough for every phone (splash, rain, spill, very shallow depth like the aquarium)… it's a pricey item to damage 😃…

    I don't get it… why are you blurring her name on the phone? Like what's the point of blurring it out after it was already on screen for 5 seconds before you started blurring it.

    It was already dead when she threw it into the pool that is why the screen is all black. She should show that it is still working when she took it out of the rice. Water damage will show up a week or more after the water seep inside to the electronic parts.

    What's the point of it being IP rated, if no warranty covers water damage?

    Oneplus is very smart not giving IP rating company their money. If they want money for their IP rating stamp of approval, they should warranty one plus phones. Otherwise what's the point of IP rating other then making phone buyers pay more for their phones.

    OnePlus is very smart by doing their own tests and saving themselves and there Customers money.

    FDA is also another approval company that gives nothing back for approving drugs. Now that's some bullchitz right their.

    Ip ratings are for ONLY fresh water so a pool and the ocean will more likely damage the phone.

    She dashed the phone into the pool and it hit the bottom then turned off. Not very good for a water resistance test

    oneplus wont certify the phone cause it will increase the overall price of the phones for consumers.also water damage is not under warranty for any company anyways

    These Youtubers are creating a false hype about the camera.. It's bad.. you will have to try and install a Google camera app on it and then install Snapseed or Lightroom etc.. then it might give you some shots with keeping.. it's BAD!! The overall experience of using the camera app in itself sucks.. so do the pictures.. it's not a flagship device.. comparing it with Samsung, Apple, Google is only to create the hype.. I wish I could return this for my Samsung..

    Tests are incomplete. It's more than a camera and speakers. U need to check the microphones, reciever, charging ports etc.
    And in most cases, water damages to phone takes a few days to show its effects. So wait for atleast 2-3 days to check whether everything is working fine.

    Pretty sure the air you blew into speaker killed this phone and shorted it out once water hit the rite spot inside. Willing to bet it would have made it through all your tests if not for that.

    You blew water into the phone with the can of air. There's only a screen with holes in it that keeps water out of speaker port so blowing inward with air will force water into phone for sure.

    Water damage can take days before it actually ruins a phone. So I would have liked to know after those 30min in the little tank if it actually survived and still works normal over the next week or so.

    Great, use high pressure air to blow the water deep inside the phone.

    Water resistant or water proof…in either case water & electronics don't mix. The water resistance is for accidents…like getting caught in the rain or dropping it in water or someone spilling liquid around it. Its not meant to swim with or shower with….smh. Duh

    Do keep in mind that pool water is very different from… most water you encounter, meaning that high Chlorine levels will most likely corrode the adhesive that provides the water resistance. That's why pool water resistance, so to speak, is not the same thing as water resistance.
