The power button and volume keys are designed on the right of the body, the black round button is the boot button, the long bar is the upper and lower volume button. Both buttons are waterproof.
The 3.5mm headphone jack on the top of the body and USB charging data interface are sealed with waterproof rubber cover. If you need to recharge or listen to songs, you need to manually open the seal.

When I was free at home, I tested the phone’s waterproofing ability. Before, I’ve tested Sony’s z3 with IP68 waterproof, but not rush hardly towards it . Because I heard that such a punch would plug the protection out of the gap, the phone would be watered. But this time, the author opened the tap to the maximum and the water directly rushed King Kong. Look at the appearance, no pressure.
