While most flagship smartphones are water resistant, the LG G4 is NOT Water Resistant. In order to be water resistant the LG G4 would require an IP rating of at least IP61 which makes it dust resistant and protected against vertically falling water drops (rain). Currently the LG G4 doesn’t have an IP rating which means it isn’t dust or water resistant.
