    "This is the best smartphone I've ever owned. The camera is excellent, the battery life is better than most, and to beat all, it's nearly completely water-resistant. It's great for use outdoors or by the pool. Just don't submerge it entirely in water, and you'll be fine."

    "I've accidentally dropped my phone into water at least three times. Yes I'm accident-prone. I got the CAT PHONES S60 because it's the most waterproof phone. Haven't dropped it yet but I'm confident that if I do it will be fine."

    "After losing a few phones to water damage, this one is a great solution! I like that you don't compromise technology for durability. It's still sleek looking and has a great camera. The price point is fair compared to other smartphones on the market. The color choices are cool as well."

    "The Google Pixel 2 XL is the premier flagship phone for android. It has more features than I could even list. One of the most practical features is that it's waterproof. As someone who has dropped his phone in water before, I am extremely thankful for this feature."

    "I absolutely love that it's water resistant and the camera is pretty good too (a little unusual, too, since the front camera is better than the back). I wish the touch screen felt a little smoother would be my main complaint."

    "I dropped my phone in a pool of water and I was really saddened by the fact that a little bit of water just destroyed my expensive phone. So, I decided to look for some decent phones that were waterproof. This one came up a lot in the forums that I visited. I am glad I found it."

    "I like the big screen on this because I do a lot of work on it rather than using my laptop. I get more than enough use out of it to justify the higher price. It's been flawless since I bough it 3 months ago. "
