Costing just $79 (about $110 or £55), the Hydro View is a budget option if you don't want to risk a more expensive phone when you're battling the elements on vacation or in emergency situations.

The phone is also sealed against dust and dirt, so you can take it to the beach or off-road as well as to the pool.
