Mirage.PH, 04 Mar 2016Thanks for the info but it's confusing. I thought that if it's waterproof there is no limit on... moreBecause of Physics...if you go down deeper in the water its pressure increases......Thats why submarines also cant go much deep in the water.
"And both have their microUSB port exposed, which is something only Sony did before."
Guys, you should really do some homework!
Sharp, NEC, Panasonic and Fujitsu had their phones waterproof for years in Japan and USB ports have all been exposed. Search for Docomo and Softbank.
sony still the monster and trusted water resistant phone. and good camera. almost all camera on a phone comes from sony. the real moster of camera is the lumia 1020 still. if only it has a water resistant lmao.
Mirage.PH, 04 Mar 2016Water Resistant is way way too different from Water Proof. Don't mislead people guys. -_-No phone is waterproof. Even sony is only water resistance because no phone can withstand infinite amount of time in the water.
Mirage.PH, 04 Mar 2016Water Resistant is way way too different from Water Proof. Don't mislead people guys. -_-We wonder whether the story guy, had his phone in the swimming pool , with strong chloride, or in the sea, and salt may have dried on or across one of the neccessary contacts. Maybe a gentle clean would simply sort the problem out. Physics are physics and I suppose it may be unreasonable of us to expect every phone manufacturer to account for every level of our interaction with the real world.
The shower and puddles are good, sea water, swimming pools, bath water with all our concoctions, etc ,may constitute an environment, other than that intended by the phrase water resistant , metal may suffer attacks/damage by water ingress, not based on the water itself, but by what it carries, there is no protection against all our individual ,circumstances , in which we may not act with commonsence, myself included , it is not being suggestive of the above case, the detail of the instance of which, we are not party to, but water resistance, should be interpreted as, purely, that, nothing more and to be fair we should expect to recieve nothing less.
O really wonder if it can handle normal underwater use, like less than 1m, but under the sea.
how is the phone now ? please keep us updated, bc the problems more or less never happens at day one ;)
something totally different. im looking at sd card, will 150MB/s og 270MB/s card be best for totally lag free sd card option ? im currently looking at lexar x1000 and x1800 micro sd cards.

Your device supports water- and dust-resistance. Follow these tips carefully to maintain the
water- and dust-resistance of your device. Failure to do so may result in damage to your
Â• Do not immerse the device in water deeper than 1.5 m and keep it submerged for more
than 30 minutes.
Â• Do not expose the device to water moving with force, such as running water from taps,
ocean waves, or waterfalls.
Â• If the device is exposed to clean water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. If the
device is exposed to other liquids, rinse it with clean water and dry it thoroughly with a
clean, soft cloth. If you do not follow these instructions, the deviceÂ’s performance and
appearance may be affected.
Â• If the device has been immersed in water or the microphone, speaker, or receiver is
wet, sound may not be heard clearly during a call. Wipe the device with a dry cloth or dry
it thoroughly before using it.
Â• The touchscreen and other features may not work properly if the device is used in water.
Â• Your device has been tested in a controlled environment and certified to be waterand
dust-resistant in specific situations (meets requirements of classification IP68 as
described by the international standard IEC 60529-Degrees of Protection provided
by Enclosures [IP Code]; test conditions: 15-35°C, 86-106 kPa, 1.5 metre, 30 minutes).
Despite this classification, it is still possible for your device to be damaged in certain
Someone Else, 04 Mar 2016Simple.... just use wireless charging. Problem solvedThere is no problem to be solved here. This is a protection implemented on purpose.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2016I think you are misinformed. Actually for IPX7 it is water proof for up to 1meter for up to 30... moreThanks for the info but it's confusing. I thought that if it's waterproof there is no limit on it like for example on g-shock watches you can use your watch 20meters deep without worrying that water will get inside but if you get deeper that's the time your watch will die coz water can get inside your watch?
ABADDON, 04 Mar 2016So this might be the reason why Samsung did not go yet with USB Type-C bandwagon, cause it may... morethats a very good point, and there is much more demand for waterproofing then USB C at the current time until the latter is more widely adopted
Mirage.PH, 04 Mar 2016Water Resistant is way way too different from Water Proof. Don't mislead people guys. -_-I think you are misinformed. Actually for IPX7 it is water proof for up to 1meter for up to 30min in fresh water. the problem arises when people put their phones in water not base on the given conditions or putting phone longer than given time- soap water, salt water, hot water etc. For IPX8, its waterproof conditions are different too.
To say that IPX7 rating is not waterproof is like saying a diving equipment is not water proof because if you put a diving equipment at 1000m, it leaks. You're not the only one that misunderstands, many people misunderstand waterproof rating too. Even a submarine will not be waterproof if it is used in water conditions it is not meant for. Things are only waterproof at the rating they are meant for.
Linas, 04 Mar 2016Funny enough Apple don't need such feature, they have feature called - "no water proofing", so... moreThe guy bring up apple at android section pretending to act cool and gain more attention
Please Samsung explain this: [http://forum.xda-developers.co...d-t3328011], is it true Ur phone has IP68 with term & condition?
