16 September 2019
Interestingly, Zack found rubber seals at almost every step - even though the phone isn't water resistant (or even splash-proof).

I was considering K20 Pro, but after its audio review. I guess I won't.

The audio is 3.5mm jack(my maximum use case) is not bad by any means, but its still worse than your S10 and my Redmi 2 Prime, both.

He/she didn't negate your claim, rather he/she just enhanced it to a higher level.

I have a S10+ and bought a K20 (not the Pro) on a whim to see what it's like. I use the K20 all the time, and the Samsung is packed in the box waiting to be sold.

miko, 16 Sep 2019You're wrong mate! This device is very competitive.I just said that where am I wrong mate???

But K20pro has a pathetic selfie camera...not even close to any flagship phone..even low light camera performance is also bad.

One of the main reason this phone will never get IP rated is the pop-up camera, even with rubber ring, it will still be the weakest link when it comes to waterproofing.

Firstly, none of the IP-rated phones cover for water/dust damage in their warranties. Secondly, OEMs have to pay to put their phones through the certification process. A cost passed on to the consumer. OnePlus, if I am not mistaken, claims that. They claim their phones to be water and dust resistant but don't put them through the Ingress Protection Certificate. I know of really cheap SD4xx and SD 6xx budget and mid-range Xiaomis that have survived toilet accidents. You need to take them out, do a quick disinfectant wipe, dry them as much as possible, bury them in a sack of rice, wait a couple of days, they just turn on. Do not turn them on right after getting out of water.

IP certifications are all great. But no point if the OEM refuses to cover water/dust damage under warranty.

ProJames-CHM, 16 Sep 2019That's because, like Hypocritical+, they don't want to be liable... morethere exists NO such a thing like an IP "certification". there is only ip "rating", as in according to an agreed reference sistem coded in some standard, and is NOT compulsory covered by law or an equivalent restriction: certification NOT EQUAL rating. thus, as long as a manufacturer does not want to cover the product with an warranty there is no law to force it.

ProJames-CHM, 16 Sep 2019That's because, like Hypocritical+, they don't want to be liable... moreThat's not true. Not one company covers water damage in their warranty, even with an IP rating.
