    水 normally means water.
    行 normally means walk, OK, a type of industry/profession, etc.

    If they are about mobiles, I think they mean 水货 and 行货.
    水货 is a product imported/produced not by the official agent. It can be legal or illegal, or even a fake product. The quality may or may not be as good as it should be. There is typically no warranty. Such products are typically cheaper.
    行货 is a regular product, the opposite of 水货.
