    IP rating is given after rigorous testing. One odd bucket challenge will not satisfy customers. This is not a magic show. This is real customer satisfaction that us at stake. It is a mistake not to accept your omission and then justify it. The premium pricing is not palatable if there are noticeable omissions and compromises

    So much for NEVER SETTLE THEME

    I totally disagree with your opinion. I am not interested in certification at all, knowing that the warranty does not cover it in the event of an accident. Much better to know that it resists water without false expectations.

    Agreed bro
    But I lost my one plus 5 earlier due to simple dunking in water accidentally

    if you're worried about the water resistance watch Dave 2D's video on YouTube he does the whole review with the phone in water. They didn't get the official rating, but it's all good.

    oh so a post that has 1/3 nothing to do can't be shared on a forum with the remaining 2/3 relevant? because the other device involved WAS a 6T in-freaking-deed, and the remaining 1/3: was about IP ratings which is what we're discussing, i freaking beg you, come on, shoot me the best you got!

    Sorry :) My personal opinion:
    For me it's not critical to have that ip rating that raises the price of the phone and that does not guarantee anything anyway.
    Huawei's flagships are way more expensive.
    I choose OnePlus solely for fast & smooth software performance and the top tier spec sheet (CPU, and other hardware). If there is another topspec fast & smooth phone with zero bloatware at reasonable price I will definitely go for it, I am not stuck with one brand.
    IP rating doesn't affect the performance, therefore for me it's more important to have a faster phone at cheaper price, with no bloatware in UI, and no ads in UI.

    PS: There are other Chinese phones cheaper than OnePlus with the same specs, but they have bloatware and ads in UI. You might guess what company it is ;)

    PS2: I think OP 7 Pro is overpriced ;)

    I just got some water on my 7 Pro at the pool an hour aho, didn't even submerge it. Bottom speakers have been wonky ever since, hoping it just needs to dry off first.

    As I had the chance to write in your previous thread:

    The phone is built with every-day use in mind, meaning that safeguards have been made to protect it from things like rain or small splashes.

    Still, the phone is in no way IP certified and from the looks of your back camera, it was exposed to a big amount of water.
