So what does the crowd say? Well, apparently, there's a pretty significant split in opinions. Most of you (47.71%) consider IP certification a massive plus, but it's also telling that almost as many people (43.36) feel as if that's nothing more than a perk and nothing beyond that. What's more, 8.93% of participants feel as if the resources spent on designing a waterproofed phone could be better spent elsewhere. To them, IP certification is virtually useless.
So what do these results tell us? In all honesty -- nothing that we didn't suspect already. There's a very obvious split, almost 50/50, between those who value IP certification, and those who do not. Perhaps the most compelling argument for the former that we've come across, is usage in the bath tub and at the beach. Underwater photography sounds pretty fun, we'll tell you that.
