This weather gets a lot of people down, but it has no power over these premium machines!

When it rains, it pours, though that should’t ever dampen our mood. Let’s take a cue from these water-resistant smartphones.

All this moisture will not get in the way of these flagship smartphones — most of which were built to be resistant to liquids. Whether it be a bath, a minor spill, or bad weather, these phones will keep on keeping on.

Samsung Galaxy S8+

No need to bust out your umbrella for this beauty.Holding a blue Samsung Galaxy S8 in the rain. It's waterproof!

Looking very sleek with its Infinity Display, you’d be hard-pressed to find another smartphone with a design that looks this graceful in the market. Samsung’s latest release is still my favorite in terms of looks (there’s a pink one!!), though this might change pretty soon, as the company is set to release the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 8 next month.

Also a plus: There are built-in filters and stickers (just like on Snapchat) in this phone’s camera app.

Even after all these years, the iPhone retains its cult following — and with good reason. Apple, known to be a leader in tech innovation, is set to release the iPhone 8 soon and I’m pretty curious what they have in store!

It will take more than a little rain to break this device; in fact, we’ve actually thrown one in a washing machine and it survived!

However, my favorite feature from this premium smartphone continues to be its camera! Aside from being equipped with a dual-cam setup featuring one wide-angle lens, the phone has built-in Instagram-friendly features which will definitely up your #feedgoals!

The HTC U11 is making a splash in Asia soon. But before it hits our shores, we can already appreciate its solid waterproofing.

This is definitely a beautifully designed phone. Even without knowing anything about its specs or capabilities, I’m instantly drawn to this shiny thing.

It seems it’s not all looks, as HTC’s newest flagship is power-packed with great features which include a squeeze function (yes, the phone responds when you squeeze it!).
