    Best Waterproof Android smartphones in 2013

    Durable design helps you to have a phone which can work for longer time under rough condition. It commonly happens with all of us, sometime our phone fell from our hand or you drop water on it. It happens with me regularly. I was working on my lappy with coffee in one hand. I kept it aside and just next to that was my mobile Xperia ZR. My cat bumped on the tab and the entire glass flipped. Thankfully Xperia ZR is a waterproof phone. It didn't have any issue. I cleaned it with wet cloth and it is working fine.

    So here I am making this review just to give you the list of all durable phones in the market. Mobile accidents are very common and if anything breaks then it is a huge repair cost. Today most of the phone comes with IP57 & IP56 certification. This is not just numbers they are the standard through which the device has passed. They pass a dustproof and waterproof test. So if in this year you are planning to buy a new phone then why not go ahead with a durable model. A model which can tolerate water and dust. I am making a small list below and also expect new updates on the same from others.

    Maximum model which I had listed below are all durable. They give you industrial level protection. They are durable and strong offering you great option to deal with dust and water. You can use them in rain or in rough weather without worrying about liquid problem. Water is one of the most common issues which spoil an electronic instantly. So almost all high end phone according to me must be waterproof. Because it is a huge waste of money if that mobile stops working and does not give you proper output. So here is the list of best Android based waterproof smartphones in the market:

    Sony Xperia Z:

    This is a good mobile according to me. You will be happy with body and other internal features. This phone offer you a big 5inch TFT display on the front side. Big size screen offer you high resolution and smooth performance. You can get a maximum resolution of 1080x1920 pixels on the same. You can play HD movies and videos on the same. The phone has a 1.5 GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU on the same. It is a high end CPU capable of handling all multi-tasking output. The phone also works well on Android 4.1 Jellybean OS. The optimized UI is fast and add more to the performance. For camera you have a 13.1MP camera on the backside with led flash support. You can get amazing videos and photos out of it. It allows you to record a full 1080p HD video. Which is not bad at all. While the front camera which is a 2.2MP is not bad. This model passes the IP57 certificate which makes a durable model. The cost of this mobile phone is Rs.34,9990.

    Panasonic ELUGA Power:

    This phone remains somewhere in the dust not so acclaimed like others. It has a 5inch screen on the front side. The LCD screen is good for doing different work. The device is also powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core QUALCOMM snapdragon CPU which is good for multi-tasking. It comes loaded with a secondary gpu support that boosts the graphic output. It is an Adreno 225 graphic card which is amazing it comes loaded with Android 4.0 ICS. For cameras it has an 8MP camera on the backside which is great enough for watching videos and for playing games. This device has an IP57 certificate that makes is durable. The cost of this phone is around Rs.30,000.

    Fujitsu Toshiba Regza:

    Another budget phone with 4inch screen but durable features. This phone is having a bit better CPU. It is a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU looks powerful enough to give you long lasting solution. But it has a Gingerbread OS and does not look to be getting any update. This phone is handy for those who need a durable model for long run. The phone is waterproof and works really fine. The cost is not revealed yet. I found the design big impressive here and at a low price you get a waterproof power.
