Other big manufacturers, however, like LG or HTC, are nonchalant about it, and both the G3 or One (M8), aren't sporting any protection from the liquid elements, though we did see HTC's finest survive in water more than what's fair. Having a waterproof handset or tablet is undoubtedly a bonus, as we can think of many situations where this would come in handy, and we don't mean plopping them in the toilet bowl by accident only, or using them in torrential rain, by the pool, or on the beach. You can actually watch movies in the bathtub on your Z2 Tablet or a big-screen phone, for instance, and not worry for a second about water damage, a pretty soothing thought no matter how you slice it.
Still, in the vast majority of situations, we manage to survive with our regular handsets that aren't sealed from the elements, as they are usually in our pockets, purses, or hands. That is why we wanted to ask you how important is the waterproof aspect of a phone or a tablet for you, and whether you are considering it at all when choosing a mobile device. Tick something off in the poll below, and tell us how you feel about the waterproofing craze in the comments.
