Video : UMIDIGI S2 Pro performed the Antutu test underwater


UMIDIGI S2 Pro

The latest UMIDIGI S2 Pro surprised more or less everybody with the “water resistant” news leaked just before the release and people immediately started wondering about the actual waterproof capabilities. We have covered all the info about the nano-coating in our previous article so no mystery there already. Today they decided that people need to see more underwater action so a full Antutu test took place in a fishtank.

So check out the following video of the Antutu test and UMIDIGI S2 Pro managed to survive the test of course and scored a quite okay score of almost 66.000 points. Just keep in mind that the waterproofing is a bit of a gimmick with no real certainty and it’s not covered by the official warranty. But of course it’s quite good to have it just in case of accidents and such.

    Ying, I am not sure I understand this:

    “Just keep in mind that the waterproofing is a bit of a gimmick with no real certainty and it’s not covered by the official warranty”

    Not covered by official warranty is one thing. It being a gimmick is a different thing. As a UMI user myself, I would honestly want to know: is it waterproof or not? Not that I am going to stick my phone in water; it’s not a feature I see myself using/needing. But this creates unwarranted doubts.

      I think he meant that the phone is kinda waterproof and can survive under water, but even UMIDIGI themselves are not encouraging it. And it’s not covered by the warranty as said, so yes its to some degree waterproof, but i wouldn’t actively try to really do it unless necessary.

        Fair enough, thank you 🙂

        UMIDIGI should not play on words. From the initial mail shots I got, it only appeared to be “rain-proof”, which is a far cry from the above submersion video.

    Just to make it clear, the case housing is not sealed, so it’s not waterproof, the water can easily get through the holes. The internal electronics are waterproof thanks to the nano-coating protection.
