Are water and dust resistant phones a new trend? We saw Sony kickstart this trend last year with the Xperia Z handset as far as more consumer-friendly handsets were concerned, rugged phones notwithstanding. This was later applied to their other phones in 2013, and also applied to the recently announced Sony Xperia Z2.
Samsung followed in Sony’s footsteps by announcing the Galaxy S5 which was also both water and dust resistant, and now if the rumors out of Korea are to be believed, it seems that LG might be walking down that road as well with their upcoming LG G3 handset.
