One of the worst feelings in the world is dropping your phone into water. However, you don't need to worry about it with one of these seven waterproof phones.

Whether you're planning a whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado River or intend to go jet-skiing with some friends this weekend, you want to make sure your technology stays safe during your adventures.

While not all phones are built for water-based excursions, some are crafted to withstand liquid without taking any damage. Here are seven of the best waterproof phones you can purchase on the market today.

1. Samsung Galaxy S10

If you've done your homework on durable phones, you know the Samsung Galaxy S10 leads the list.

This phone brings users a sleek, appealing display with a strong interior that can withstand damage — water included. The Galaxy S10 can survive a half an hour in 1.5 meters of water.

2. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are among the most popular cellphones favored by consumers to date — and for good reason. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus offer exceptional service, design and functionality.

If you're focused just on their waterproof capabilities, you'll be happy to know that these Apple products pack an IP67 water-resistant rating.

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 10

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 offers an attractive display that doubles down when it comes to both aesthetics and durability. This phone can handle being submerged in approximately 5 feet of water for half an hour — which is a pretty impressing feature.

Aside from being waterproof, the Galaxy Note 10 is also incredibly durable. It withstands fire, scratching and bending without any major damage, so you can securely take it with you on your next extreme excursion.

4. Sony Xperia 1

Whether you're out kayaking on the river or surfing through some waves, you want a phone that can stay dry and still capture the moment. The Sony Xperia 1 comes equipped with three rear cameras that showcase your photography on a 6.5-inch 4k display.

This phone is also waterproof. This nifty device has an IP65/68 certification for water resistance and can handle 1 meter of water submersion — which translates to approximately 3.3 feet.

5. iPhone X

The iPhone X is a favored option among Apple-fanatics. This 5.8-inch OLED display device has facial recognition features, an astonishing HDR video display and many other amazing options you won't find on the standard iPhone 8.

Since this phone costs a pretty penny, you may be tempted to leave it at home. Fortunately, it can handle being submerged in roughly 3.3 feet of water — so even adventurers can enjoy this device on the go.

6. Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Thanks to its IP68 rating, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro provides you with added peace of mind while scrolling through your phone at the side of the river.

Other perks that make the Huawei Mate 20 Pro an appealing option include its large battery power, 3D face recognition features and sleek design.

7. Google Pixel 2

When it comes to water-resistant capabilities, the Google Pixel 2 gives Apple and Samsung products a run for their money.

Much like the iPhone 8 and not too far off from the Galaxy S8, the Google Pixel 2 is protected against 3.3 feet of water submersion. With a stellar camera, strong battery life and enhanced virtual assistance, it's an attractive and affordable alternative to the phones currently dominating the market.

Safe and Dry

While the phones mentioned above may have waterproof capabilities, it's important to do your part in keeping your electronics dry. A little precautionary action, coupled with these durable phones, means you can enjoy all your water-based adventures with peace of mind.
