This ingenious Android software will disclose an important hidden feature of your phone.
A BRILLIANT software for Android users that reveals vital information regarding the health of devices is available.
If you have an Android phone, you should think about downloading a very handy app. It’s called the Water Resistance Tester, and it can tell you if your device can survive a bath or if you’ll have to pay a hefty repair cost.
The app is available for download on the Google Play Store and offers to “help you verify whether the IP67/IP68 water-resistance seals on your phone are still intact by using the barometer built into your phone,” as first discovered by Android Police.
Most current phones should be able to withstand being used in the rain or getting wet when a drink is spilled on them.
However, as they age, the seals that make them waterproof may fail, allowing liquid to enter and cause havoc with the delicate internals.
This software is designed to show you how waterproof your phone in your pocket is after years of use.
The program works by using the inbuilt barometer to sense pressure, and users are urged to tap the screen with both thumbs. Simply said, if the phone is completely sealed, the pressure inside the gadget will rise.
You might be wondering if it actually works, but based on the Play Store reviews, it appears that many people are very pleased.
“I have no idea how it works, but it does, at least in the four test scenarios I tried,” says the author. Waterproof (not waterproof if sim tray is removed) Xperia 5 II (IP68, undamaged) Xperia XZ (IP68, corner busted open, screen replaced) – not waterproof; Xperia XZ (IP68, corner busted open, screen replaced) – not waterproof; The Galaxy S4 Mini does not have an IP rating, hence it is not waterproof; “Wonderful app.”
“Genuinely a very amazing and simple software, have to hand it to the creator for utilising the barometer in such a clever way,” one user remarked. I put a Galaxy S10+ to the test (intact) A Pixel 2 xl that had been dropped and damaged was tested and found to be unusable. It’s not just a matter of checking up the device’s model number; it’s a true test.”
It’s well worth a try if you’re worried about how well your Android device will handle a swim in the pool during the summer holidays.
