  • Is Honor Play Waterproof?

    R

    Answered By Rakesh Verma | 3 months ago
    Water Resistance is a systematic engineering in a digital product and Honor Play's built makes it very hard to reach a great level of waterproofing. Honor Play can get damaged even with a splash. So, Honor Play is not at all waterproof and you might have to get a new one if you drop it in water.
