An international survey commissioned by P2i has highlighted the fact that smartphones are increasingly at risk of water damage. The survey showed that only a small number of users have water protection strategies in place, and are using their devices more and more in places where there is a significant risk of water damage.
This infographic created by P2i shows the main findings from their study into smartphone water damage. You can download the infographic here (PDF format), and view a text alternative by clicking here.
Nah! My smartphone won't get wet...
People use their smartphones everywhere:
