LG G4 submerged in water for 2 hours – will it survive?

Unlike the Sony XPERIA Z3+, the LG G4 is not IP-certified, which means it doesn’t have the proper protection against dust and water. This said, what would happen if someone were to dunk the smartphone in 4 inches of water for 2 hours? Let’s find out.


In this new LG G4 water test, the smartphone is submerged in 4 inches of water. Surprisingly, the smartphone survived the test unscathed. The screen did turn off at some point, but this was due to the battery almost running out of juice instead of water damage. Although the back cover did little to prevent water from seeping in, the LG G4 still remained functional.
