Durable Smartphones

Date Written: 7/12/13

Some of the most powerful smartphones that have debuted on the market this year have some new great features behind their names. These new smartphones, such as the already released Sony Xperia Z (February 2013), the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (released June 2013) and the upcoming Motorola X (Fall 2013), are IP57 certified meaning they are certifiably waterproof and dust resistant phones. These smartphones are some of the most durable smartphones on the market making them great options for home inspectors.

A smartphone that is IP57 certified can be submerged under water for up to 30 minutes without being affected, so if you drop the phone in water on a job site or are working out in the rain, you don't have to worry about your phone suffering from water damage. Smartphones that are IP57 certified are also dust proof, so if you're a home inspector who does inspections on new home construction or are cautious about taking your smartphone in attics and crawl spaces, you don't have to worry about dust damaging or affecting the operation of your device.
