Both devices have IP68 waterproof rating making the phones properly water-resistant. Although the camera is only 12MP which is a bit low compared to Samsung Galaxy S6, the technology behind the new camera makes it superb. It has a wide aperture of f/1.7 and there is smart optical image stabilization to give great shots. The new Dual Pixel technology allows great low-light photography and blazing fast auto-focus.
