iPhone 6s with a Great Case

iPhone 6s with a Great Case

It's not waterproof, but the iPhone 6s handles water much better than the iPhone 6 did.  The iPhone 7 is a handy option, but many users will want a cheaper option and the iPhone 6s with a waterproof case fits that bill. 

If you still want to use an iPhone you can place it inside a LifeProof case to allow your iPhone to survive up to 6.6 feet of water or inside a Tech21 case. 

There are three LifeProof case options available that offer a variety of options with the same overall protection from water, drops, dust and snow.

LifeProof Fre  - This is the basic LifeProof case that includes a built-in screen protector and a $79.99 price but you can find it on sale for around $50.

LifeProof Nuud - For $89.99 you can get an option that leaves the iPhone 6 screen wide open while still delivering waterproof protection. This option is on sale for around $67 frequently.

LifeProof Fre Power - This case delivers a waterproof iPhone 6 with an extended battery for more power and protection. The LifeProof Fre Power is $129, but it is on sale for $85 very often

LifeProof sells these cases in a variety of color options. For more, read our LifeProof Fre iPhone 6 waterproof case review.

If you buy the LifeProof FRE from Verizon it includes the LifeProof Total Water Protection program that covers the phone inside the case. This does not come with LifeProof case purchased at other retailers. With if your phone breaks from a drop, splash, spill or dunk into the water you can get it replaced by Verizon for a $50 deductible. The protection is valid for one year.

You must register this within 14 days of purchase. The LifeProof Total Water Protection program is also available for the Droid Turbo 2, LG G5, Droid Maxx 2 and several other phones. Another great option is the Tech21 Evo Xplorer waterproof iPhone 6s case. This is $89.95.

    If the iphone is not waterproof, it should not be in the list of best waterproof phones. If I was simply looking to place any good phone in a waterproof case, I would search for waterproof cases.

      Absolutely, yer notes written out using a bottle of ink an’ a feather are not going to be damaged when encapsulated in a sealed waterproof box either. Not really what we mean by waterproof though is it !!!

    Sony Z5 is really a current leader in this high tech waterproof catagory.

    This article is incorrect.
    The iPhone is NOT waterproof,
    The S7 is rated 1 meter for 30 minutes–not 5 feet,
    The MOTO G is completely missing–one of the best waterproofs under $200.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy s5. I have taken it swimming and have taken pictures and recorded videos of the kids swimming under water. I dropped it in our pool once in the deep end, which was about 6 feet. Still going strong after 2 years of having it! Makes it even better with the water proof lifeproof fre case

    Ah… I feel sorry for those who just have a great moment when their phones water-proof. I’ve felt this years ago.

    My wife had a Galaxy S5 and it somehow ended up in the toilet for just 15 mins. It never worked again and had to be replaced. So the claim of the Galaxy S5 being able to stand in water for 30 mins is a blatant lie

    The writer need to learn more, what about the Sony Xperia`s, and why he include the iphone 6s in this list, i think he was paid, this is not a trusty article.-

    Had the Sony Xperia Z3, I do excavation. Had the phone fall into a water line ditch filled with water. Stayed there for over an hr since the line broke and trench kept caving in. Was able to recover it about an 1 and half later and after washing off the mud it still worked. Same issue with mY galaxy s5 and no issues except 5 was only under for about 15 minutes. Took s5 to Hawaii and used it under water the whole time snorkeling and didn’t have any issues just great pics.

    Galaxy S8 deserves to be in the list as well. This list also has a lot of Waterproof phones which are still a good pick.

    Great post. Galaxy S7 is indeed a great smartphone. Moreover, Sony is also manufacturing pretty good devices that are water resistant with IP68 certification but Sony smartphones are overpriced.
    By the Way, Galaxy S7 is not an affordable smartphone.
