I got the white one...

Time to dig out the Coach wristlet I bought a couple of months ago for use as a phone pouch...fits just nice!

The Waterproof Experiment...

Fill up the sink and place phone inside

Touch screen doesn't work...must use buttons.

Taking a shot using shutter button


The phone was submerged for a duration of about 15mins in total. Phone's touch screen doesn't work while wet. Taking photos underwater is still possible by pressing the 'camera shutter' button to launch the camera app and to take photos using shutter button as well.

The phone still works fine after its wiped dry, touch screen is back to normal when dry. Below is an unaltered shot from the phone taken underwater.

Time to go Daiso to buy a screen protector..
