Is the Motorola One Zoom waterproof?

Is the Motorola One, One Vision waterproof to IP67, IP68?

17th September 2019

Motorola has the 2018 Motorola One (Daily price, shown) provided with a "nano" coating that protects against splash water and light rain:

The advanced nano-coating creates a water-repellent layer that helps protect the device from moderate contact with water, such as accidental spills, water splashes or light rain. The device must not be immersed in water or other liquids or exposed to water pressure as it is not waterproof.

For the One, that would correspond to splash protection according to IP53 or IP54. The device is therefore not completely dustproof and waterproof, that would be the protection classes IP67 or IP68 (list here).

For the 2019 Motorola One Vision (Daily price) the manufacturer specifies protection class IP52, which means partial protection against the ingress of dust and against dripping water, i.e. at best very light rain. The nano-coating is no longer mentioned in the marketing material of the Vision.

Salt water can also attack the seals in the case of mobile phones that are inherently watertight. For the beach or the sea, waterproof protective covers for cell phones have proven themselves, which can be used when swimming, diving or snorkeling:

The highly transparent material also makes it possible to take photos under water. Since the touchscreen in the case is no longer easy to use, you should put the camera shutter release on one of the volume buttons.

Available from Amazon for less than 10 euros (pair price).

We like to use the Lamicall stands made of high-quality aluminum (approx. 10 euros), which are very stable and at the same time offer the best viewing angle. The stand shown is not only suitable for all Motos but also for all other current cell phones with a screen size of up to about 7 ″:

(Photo shows a Motorola G6, which is about the size of the "One")

The stand is padded towards the cell phone so that the back is not scratched. It also has rubber feet on the underside so that it doesn't slip while typing. Cables can be fed through an opening on the back. The mobile phone can be inserted upright or horizontally.

You can get it from Amazon for around 10 euros, also available in other colors. Definitely a recommendation for the price.

Even if Motorola has given both phones a headphone jack, sometimes you want to avoid the clutter of cables. Then you should go to the Bluetooth headset or In-ear Pick up the phone; Our recommendation for the Motorola One is the inexpensive but good Enacfire E18:
