Some of the top brands' popular smartphones that are not water-proof and may get spoiled in rains.

Monsoon is at last here! Last week Delhi-NCR's wait for Monsoon too ended, with the rains lashing the city. We may love rains but our smartphones may not. In fact, some of the top brands' popular smartphones that are not water-proof and may get spoiled in rains. The list includes Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Asus, Honor, Motorola and few phones from Samsung and Google.

Xiaomi handsets like Redmi Note 7s and Redmi Note 7 Pro come with a special P2i nano-coating. The phones become splash-resistant, but as the company on its website mentions: "not to be confused as waterproof." Oppo too does not make any 'water-proofing claims' for its devices. The firm's latest high-end range Reno also does not have any 'water-proof' phones in its range so far.

Asus most-expensive phone, Asus ROG, is also splash resistant but not waterproof. Huawei-owned popular Chinese brand Honor also does not make any statements on having water resistance quality.

Though OnePlus claims that its devices are waterproof, none of them come with any IP rating certification that says it is water resistant and water-proof. So we have included them in our list. When it comes to Google, the company's high-end flagship Pixel devices -- Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL -- come with an IP-68 rating. The new mid-range Pixel smartphones launched earlier this year, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL come with IP rating. It's similar to Samsung, the company's high-end series handsets are water-proof. But not all the low and mid-range devices are water-proof.
