During the Galaxy S5 Ice Bucket Challenge, Samsung's marketing team challenged HTC One (M8) and Nokia Lumia 930 to get drenched in ice-cold water on camera.Surprisingly, both the devices have stepped up to the task.
Despite their lack of official water resistance, both the M8 and the Lumia 930 made it out of the cold shower unscathed. It was unbelievable to see that each device appeared to remain completely functional.
According to the author of the video the survival of the HTC One (M8) should hardly catch anyone by surprise - the IPx3 splash-resistant, metal-clad smartphone has pulled even more dramatic water-related stints in the past.
On the other hand, as for the Nokia Lumia 930, the author of the video helped it out a little bit by sealing its 3.5mm audio jack during the exercise with his finger, therefore keep water away from entering directly into the device (the M8 needs no such assistance, as its audio jack sits on the bottom).
It is important to note that most high-end smartphones these days offer build quality that allows them to survive more unforeseen circumstances than in the past.
Now lets and watch which handset will be the next to take up this challenge.
