Often we tend to make snap judgements when it comes to our smartphones but one that we should take a second look at before doing this is the Apple iPhone SE. This device is being put through its paces as iPhone enthusiasts worldwide now have access to it. No doubt it has already seen its fair share of water to see how it is going to survive the many different forms of water testing that we dream up, to determine just how good it is at resisting water. What should be evident to those that are smartphone savvy is that this 4 inch Apple iPhone SE should not be under estimated. Okay it’s not as big and eye catching as the soon to be released iPhone 7 will be.

The iPhone 6s Plus – 6.5 medium risk
If you are ready to gasp in awe then you can watch the durability testing yourself:
So the IPhone SE held its own pretty good and now you can see why we suggest that you don’t underestimate it.
