Is Galaxy Note8 Dust and Water Resistant (IP68 rating)?

Whether you’re a hiking enthusiast who hits the mountains every weekend or you just live in a bustling city, having a durable phone gives you peace of mind. You can be as adventurous as you like knowing your Note8 is equipped with protection from water, dirt, and grime. IP (Ingress Protection) is a universally accepted measure of varying degrees of dust and liquid resistance. Galaxy Note8 has an IP rating of 68, which means you can bring it with you on adventures and take comfort in knowing your phone can keep up with your active lifestyle.

Dust and Water-Resistance Tips

Heading to the beach or waterpark soon? Awesome! Luckily your phone is dust and water resistant. Just make sure you don’t drop it in the ocean! Keep these tips in mind when you’re facing the elements: 

• The touchscreen may not be active in water.
• The S Pen does not need to be inserted to maintain IP68 rating.

  • Whenever your phone gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

  • Do not expose the phone to salt water or ionized water. If your phone is exposed to salt water, wash the phone with fresh water, and then dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Otherwise, when it dries, salt may accumulate and block the primary microphone, earpiece, and external speaker.

  • When drying off your phone, be sure to pat the earpiece (top front of the phone), primary microphone (bottom of phone), external speaker (bottom of phone), and the power/accessory (USB) interface connector with a clean, soft cloth to remove as much water as possible.

  • When making a call immediately after your phone is wet, the microphone may have water in it, which may lower the volume that the other person will hear. After drying off the phone, allow the phone to air-dry before making a call.

  • Physical damage to your phone, such as chips and cracks can significantly reduce its ability to resist dust and water.
