Improvising a Cheap and Waterproof Smart Phone Case

This afternoon I had a bike trip planned, but it started to rain heavily. Since I still wanted to go, I had to improvise a waterproof case for my smart phone. I then used a simple zip lock back, which should provide the necessary water protection, since it is able to hold fluids inside. This is a very cheap solution and another nice thing is that it is still possible to use the smart phone through the bag.

I don't know how waterproof this hack really is, my smart phone survived the rain, but I would not recommend to dive through an ocean =) Therefore I can give no warranties that this hack will actually work.
