I use small ziplock bags which I got, that just fits my phone, then put it in a dry bag. Phone screen etc still works inside the ziplock bag, just gives me more peace of mind after already having to renew an I phone.

People make waterproof smartphones and you folks who are round water all the time are still relying on little bags to keep very expensive equipment dry... ...Mr Jobs is up there laughing at you all!

Drowned an iphone 4S on Good Friday

Bought a 'waterproof' Sony Xperia (housebrick) on Easter Monday.

Got rid of it (absolutely incompatible with everything else - Parrot system, Zeppelin, etc, etc) and bought an Iphone 5 at Whitsun.

Invested in a Lifeproof cover

Still going strong on August Bank Holiday!

I use the small plastic boxes with the seals and clips on each side. Cheap and cheerful fro the local hardware store. Various sizes & they float..

Haven't had a wet phone or keys yet !

No way would I trust a foldy uppy thang with my delicates if big seas were likely. In fact, even arriving with wet camping gear is an utter ball ache. I keep my phone etc in a seat pod , a peli for sure in a sib. I have a 200 ltr hypalon/dry zip mother of a thing built by Avon for everything else. A rarity I think.

My phone, wallet, and Smart Key go into a Pelican 1050 case, then into a dry bag that gets clipped off to the boat. The dry bag has been dry for years, but it is a bag and could get punctured. The Pelican case is pretty tough. The dry bag holds other boat gear like my pressure gauge, binoculars, tyvek suits (They pack small and are "waterproof"), boat registration, and a few other items.
