Both Motorola and especially Google are keeping mum on this one quality of the newest Nexus device. That said, at least Motorola lists the phablet as "water resistant".

That's right, "water resistant", not IP-certified, as we've come to expect from waterproof devices and that's thanks to nano-coating that Motorola has become quite fond of; we've seen it with the Moto G, which can survive quite the dive, but also other recent Motorola devices like the Moto X (2014). But can you actually rely on the Nexus 6 to survive a drop in water?

As it turns out, the answer is yes, at least judging by one particular YouTube video that has the main protagonist, the Nexus 6, dipped in a bathtub (whilst wirelessly-charging, too!). According to the author of the video, who took to xda-developers to share the tale of his exploit, the Nexus 6 behaved normally even several days later, which is all that everyone was hoping to hear.
