1. An electronic apparatus comprising:
an apparatus case;
at least one processor configured to receive an incoming call from an external communication apparatus and to perform a voice call with the external communication apparatus;
a submergence detector configured to detect a submergence state in which the apparatus case is located underwater; and
a motion detector configured to detect a predetermined specific motion of the apparatus case, wherein
the at least one processor controls a setting status of a motion answer mode in which the incoming call is answered and the voice call is accordingly started in response to detection, by the motion detector, of the specific motion, and
when the submergence state is no longer detected by the submergence detector, the at least one processor enables the motion answer mode.
