For under £20 and less than 10 minutes of your time you could splash proof the hundreds of pounds of consumer electronic wizardry that is your smartphone. Revivaphone can’t work magic but can coat your smartphone in a fine film that reduces the damage splashes of water will do to the ports and screen. Although it won’t protect from the smartphone’s number one killer (the toilet bowl) it does a great job of keeping thing safe from a reasonable degree of harm. And if you do dunk your phone in a large body of liquids, Revivaphone also make a water damage repair kit.

I coated my iPhone 6 Plus with a Splash Proof in a super quick process that’s mostly just waiting for it to dry. After that it was the reluctant process of splashing water on my iPhone and seeing if it lived to tell the tale. I’m relieved to say it did.
