IP68-rated Ulefone Armor 2 survives submersion in a fish tank for 30 minutes (video)

by Dimitris Economou 0

The newly released Ulefone Armor 2 seems to be a good option for those who are looking for a waterproof device. But how does it perform in real-life scenarios? Well, we find the answer in the 30-minute waterproof test made by folks from Ulefone.

In theory, featuring IP68 dust and water proof certification, the Armor 2 should survive submersion in water up to 1.5 meters for up to an hour, and meet customers’ need in day-to-day usage. In the video, the tester sunk the Armor 2 while playing a video, into a fish tank. As you can see in the video below, 30 minutes later, the tester took the Armor 2 out of the fish tank and found it remains intact and works perfectly well. For those of you who are taking a wait-and-see approach, the test video could greatly dispel your doubts.
