    can I use my oneplus 3t for under water photography?
    if yes then for what duration?
    and will it have any long run effects?

    I will answer your cool questions in the same manner.
    You can apply the scuba diving suit logic here. Can you pee in it? Yes you can. The real question is - Do you want to?

    No problem mate. You can even take deep sea photos with it. I once went swimming with it and took a pic of a shark ready to attack me but that is the last pic I ever took before it bit my hand off and my phone submerged in the sea. Lucky for me, the shutter malfunctioned and Google auto backup was on and all the underwater pics were saved on my Google photos. it's awesome. check some of those pics. The first one is shark attack pic. Rest all are awesome

    This is the last pic before my phone died.

    PS. This has been done by experts (me obviously) and you should not perform this. And to answer your question, no it's not. Don't even try it because warranty doesn't cover it. It can tolerate light splashes but not submersion in water. Have a good day!

    The op3 and op3t don't have ingress protection ratings, and I'll doubt there are seals in place for submersion. So don't use it, atleast not naked (you have water tight phone bags), you're screen would function anyway so under water photography is out of the question.

    Actually, it has some water resistance, but it is minimal. If you drop ur phone into a puddle or a toilet it will be alright, but u are not supposed to take pics underwater

    Officially it has no IP rating given.
    Youtube videos show, that it survive under water - results may vary.
