HTC One (M8) and Nokia Lumia 930 tackle the Ice Bucket Challenge
Just the other day, the Samsung Galaxy S5was drenched with ice water as part of the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. At the same time, Samsung's flagship model challenged the HTC One (M8) and the Nokia Lumia 930 to take the challenge. But the Galaxy S5 has a big advantage here. That device has an IP 67 certification, meaning that it can withstand being submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.

The HTC One (M8) has an IPx3 certification. That means it offers no protection from dust, but does offer protection from water sprayed up to 60 degrees at 10l per minute, pressure of 80-100kN/m2 for up to 5 minutes. The Nokia Lumia 930, as far as we know, is not safe against splashes like the HTC One (M8) is.

While Samsung was hoping that neither rival could survive the challenge (which made it a great promotional idea on Sammy's part) both the HTC One (M8) and the Nokia Lumia 930 managed to live on past the drenching. See for yourself by watching the video below.
