Just felt I had to record how waterproof and robust the MotoG3 is. Inadvertently put my phone in washing machine. Didn't realise until my son asked why I was phoning him. Stopped the wash cycle after 30 minutes to find phone intact, although it had phoned three of my contacts, leaving a washing machine noise message on a friend's answerphone. There were 16 photos of inside the machine. The phone was still working with not a crack in sight. Initially the ringtone was a bit groggy, but after a few hours in a bowl of rice in the airing cupboard (as a precaution), it's as good as new. I am so delighted.

Tough phone!
That dried rice trick really works doesn't it!
