Many cell phone users asked where the best waterproof pouches were early in the history of cell phones. Unfortunately, such things as waterproof pouches for cell phones did not exist, leaving many users to attempt the creation of their own waterproofing, most of which was inefficient. Some cell phone manufacturers tried to create waterproof phones during the 2010s, but the results were inconsistent and never reached beyond a three-foot immersion for more than a few minutes. Today, the niche created for waterproof pouches designed to hold cell phones is being successfully filled by several manufacturers who took on the task with imaginative and resourceful purpose.
