All Samsung Phones that are Waterproof

With a waterproof phone, you will be able to record videos under water, go near pools without the fear of damaging your phone.

Want to be able to listen to music on your phone while you take a shower? A waterproof phone is what you’re going to need so you can skip that song you don’t like with your wet hands.

And if you’re constantly texting, you won’t need a bag anymore to keep your phone dry.

I could give you a whole lot of reasons why getting a waterproof phone is great. If you’re unsure if your current phone is waterproof, here is how you can check if it is.

If you’re only here because you want to get a water resistant Samsung device, here is my list.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

s10 plus 1

The Galaxy S10 Plus is currently the best water resistant Samsung phone.

Although it has been around since last year (2019), one of the reasons why it is the overall best is because it’s not as expensive as it was when it was released, but packed with features that are very relevant and premium.

Here are some other reasons why the S10 Plus is a really good waterproof Samsung phone.

  • It’s got wireless charging.
  • It can charge other devices using wireless technology.
  • It has a fingerprint scanner under the display (not on the back).
  • Supports fast charging.
  • Comes with an Audio Jack for your wired headphones.
  • Can expand memory by using an SD card.
  • Is fast, you won’t experience lags while gaming or carrying out most activities.
  • Can shoot slow motion videos.

While those are really great features the phone has, here are a few things I don’t like about the device. Might not be a deal breaker for you, though.

  • Fingerprint scanner won’t work if the phone has a glass screen protector. (This is a common issue among the S10’s which I’m not sure has been fixed yet).
  • You will have to take out one SIM card if you want to use an SD card.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Galaxy S8 takes the spot for the best Budget Waterproof Samsung device in today’s list.

Yes, even though the S5, S7 and S7 Edge are way cheaper and waterproof as well, they aren’t going to give you the best features you require in today’s world in a phone.

So, the S8 is much cheaper than it was about 3 years ago but still brings 4GB of RAM. Which, in my opinion, is the recommended amount of RAM for devices to run smoothly.

You can get it around the $200 range today.

  • Can be upgraded to Android 9 Pie.
  • Has a nice display.
  • You can expand storage.
  • Shoots slow motion videos @240fps.
  • Supports wireless charging.
  • Supports fast charging.
  • Has an iris scanner as well as a fingerprint scanner.

The not so great things about the S8 are listed below.

  • Battery isn’t that great for heavy users.
  • Not ideal for heavy gaming.
  • Curved screen may cause accidental activation.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

The Galaxy S10e is the winner in my list of the best flat screen Samsung phones and today, it is the phone I’ll recommend getting if a large screen isn’t what you’re interested in.

  • It’s got wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is one of the water resistant Samsung phones with a big battery and fantastic camera features you can get in 2020.

This is a really new phone, so yeah the price is going to be really high. But well, if battery is what you’re really interested in, you should give the S20 Ultra a try.

With its 5000mAh battery, you’re going to be on your phone all day each day without thinking about your charger.

Its cameras got everyone talking when the phone was released. One of the 4 cameras is a 48MP periscope telephoto lens that can zoom as far as in the future, you will have a fun time being impressed by how much this phone can do with its camera.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G

s20 ultra 5g

I’m putting this phone in the list because one of the cons of the S20 Ultra is: internal storage isn’t that great.

With the S20 Ultra 5G, you get a lot more options when it comes to storage. As well as the same big battery and cameras.

Not only that, you also get 5G.

Now, I wouldn’t really recommend getting a 5G phone since 5G is still in its early stages. You’re definitely going to need the big battery the phone comes with because 5G will definitely use a lot of battery compared to 4G.

But if you really want to have a feel of 5G, with great download and upload speeds, then go ahead and get the S20 Ultra 5G.

Pros of the S20 Ultra 5G.

  • Comes with 5G.
  • It’s got wireless charging.
  • It can charge other devices using wireless technology.
  • It has a fingerprint scanner under the display (not on the back).
  • Supports fast charging.
  • Offers more storage space options compared to S20 Ultra.
  • Can expand memory by using an SD card.
  • Is fast, you won’t experience lags while gaming or carrying out most activities.
  • Can shoot slow motion videos.

Cons of the S20 Ultra 5G.

  • It is an expensive device.
  • No Audio Jack.
  • You will have to take out one SIM card if you want to use an SD card.

So, here is a link to the list of all the Samsung devices that are water resistant. They are all available for purchase. You can check them out by clicking here.

More devices are going to get added to the list as they get released in the future.

Conclusion

Well, you made it to the end of the list.

Having a Samsung phone that is waterproof is great. You get to use your phone close to pools and even in the rain.

Leaves some of us “normal” phone users kinda jealous.

Well, out of all the phones I listed, if I had to recommend more, based on performance, I would recommend the S9 Plus or the Note 10 Plus.

But for those of you who want the latest features a phone can offer then the S20’s and S10’s will do just fine.

As more phones get released, this article is going to get updated. If you enjoyed this article, you might also enjoy the one I talked about some Samsung phones without curved screens.

If you are ready to get a new phone for yourself, make sure you read my article that tells you what to do before selling or giving away your phone.

This way you won’t lose any important information you have on your current phone and your personal information won’t get into the wrong hands when you don’t have the phone anymore.
