Are the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and Galaxy A34 5G waterproof?
The Galaxy A54 and Galaxy A34 are pretty awesome mid-rangers. Both come with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage space and deliver good performance. Additionally, they pack big batteries that give them good battery life and screens with a 120Hz refresh rate. Also, the phones take beautiful photos with their main cameras.

However, since we bring our smartphones everywhere we go, including to the bathroom, it's important for our trusty handset to have good durability and as much water resistance as possible, so we have to ask: Are the Galaxy A54 and Galaxy A34 waterproof?

Is the Samsung Galaxy A54 waterproof?


We must note that no smartphone is truly waterproof, and the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G isn't an exception. However, it has an IP67 water resistance rating, which means it's fully protected from dust and can be submerged in water up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes without any damage.

In other words, the phone will definitely survive an accidental drop in the sink while you are doing the dishes because it's water-resistant.

Is the Samsung Galaxy A34 waterproof?


Similar to the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G, the Samsung Galaxy A34 5G also has an IP67 certification. This means the Galaxy A34 5G also boasts complete protection against dust and can withstand submersion in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

However, it's important to keep in mind that despite the Galaxy A54 5G and the Galaxy A34 5G's water resistance, seawater should still be avoided, and it's not recommended to submerge your Galaxy A54 5G or A34 5G for an extended period of time.

What does IP67 mean?


The IP (Ingress Protection) certification rating shows how well a device can resist damage from liquids and small particles. The code's first letter shows protection against solids, while the second letter shows protection against liquids. A higher number means better protection, and "X" means the device hasn't been tested for that specific protection.

In the case of the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and the Samsung Galaxy A34 5G, both phones have 6, which is the highest number for protection against solids, and 7 for protection against liquids.

The highest number for protection against liquids is 9, which signifies that the device can withstand high-pressure and high-temperature water jets without any harm. However, most high-end smartphones, like the iPhone 14 and the Galaxy S23, have only an IP68 rating, which means they are fully protected against solids and can withstand submersion in up to 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
