Water and dust resistance has been a feature that most people look for these days. From its inception with Sony's Xperia lines, to being one of the prime feature of Samsung's S7 and now with its inclusion to Apple's iPhone 7, this particular feature is shaping up to become a staple to every incoming flagships - which then left everyone a little disappointed when Google announced its Pixel Phones.
Though bearing an IP53 certification, the Google phone is no match to the protection that its competitions offer.

Take Advantage of Your Google Pixel Camera
