MOTOROLA MOTO G Also Read - Motorola Moto G10, Moto G30 India launch expected soon: Know details here

Price – Rs 12,499

Specifications – 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, 16/32GB internal storage, 2,070mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Features – The highly popular mid-ranger took the Indian market by storm with its value for money image. But apart from what it offers on paper, the Moto G is also one of the few smartphones to have water repellant nano-coating both inside and outside at sub-Rs 15,000. While that does not mean you should take the phone out for a swim, it does mean that you should be able to take calls when someone is splashing you with water.

WICKEDLEAK WAMMY PASSION X

Price – Rs 18,500

Specifications – 5-inch 1080p display, 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 16GB expandable storage, 2,500mAh battery, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Features – Though the talking point of this device is the octa-core processor, the Passion X also happens to be WickedLeak’s first device boasting water-repellant capabilities. Like the Moto G, the Passion X too uses a nano coating on the inside as well as outside. This, in the words of the company, makes it “Super Hydrophobic.” This protection allows the device to survive for 30 minutes under any kind of liquid without damaging the device.

HTC BUTTERFLY

Price – Rs 27,800

Specifications – 5-inch 1080p display, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, 16GB expandable memory, 2,020mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean.

Features – The Butterfly has a very different kind of water resistance when compared to the like of Sony or Samsung. It has a IPX-5 protections, which according to HTC is resistant to water jets of up to 30kN/m2 pressure for about 3 minutes. In other words, when someone is ready to spray you water using a pichkari, you won’t have to worry about hiding your smartphone.

SONY XPERIA Z

Price – Rs 29,500

Specifications – 5-inch 1080p display, 1.5GHz Snapdragon quad-core SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable memory, 13.1-megapixel rear camera, 2.2-megapixel front camera, 2,330mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean (upgradable to Android KitKat).

SONY XPERIA Z ULTRA

Price – Rs 34,490

Specifications – 6.4-inch 1080p display, 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC, 2GB RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 16GB expandable storage, 3,050mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean (upgradable to KitKat).

SONY XPERIA Z1

Price – Rs 36,700

Specifications – 5-inch 1080p display, 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC, 2GB RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 16GB expandable memory, 3,000mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean (upgradable to KitKat).

SONY XPERIA Z1 COMPACT

Price – Rs 34,990

Specifications – 4.3-inch 720p display, 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 16GB expandable storage, 2,300mAh battery and Android Jelly Bean (upgradable to KitKat).

Features – All the above mentioned Xperia smartphones seem to have been built keeping Holi in mind. With resistance to water for about 30 minutes and a CyberShot camera at the back, you can easily be the official photographer for the festival.

However, do keep one thing in mind — while most of these phones are marketed as water repellant or water resistant, none of them come with liquid damage protection. So just in case you somehow manage to destroy the phone with water, it could still result in a hefty repair bill. These smartphones are water resistant, which means they are less likely to be affected by water than other smartphones.
