well my galaxy s6 edge did not survive the drop for about 4 seconds in the bath after placing in rice sealed bag for 2 full day I just get a green battery saying 100% but wont switch on AT ALL
dropped my s6 edge in sea for 1 sec....now it doesn't start...it is def not water proof.black screen...no lights...nothing....tomorrow i am taking it for repair if it is possible...but my hopes aint high anymore....
I just dropped my S6 Edge in the toilet :( Less than 5 secs as I grabbed it immediately. It went off by itself and is not powering on.
I dropper my samsung galaxy s6 in the tip and it didn't work then I charged it 2 days later and it worked again
This article just means that s6 edge has more chances of survival than other phones that are not water proof. No, it is fake.
20 min with damage is useless and all those stuff..

If you do, I believe it's you who are being stupid.

i had a phone before with xxx company that i accidentally drop in the water
and tech support from that company in the center was able to check the liquid damage and next is goodbye warranty but he whispers to smash the phone since this company or (most) has a 1 time replacement if under warranty
so i got drunk and smash the phone yet i still get goosebumps from it

you don't understand the physics behind this which is very simple.
no bubble in 10 min doesn't mean the water hasn't go inside ...
think about it and once you find the answer come here and spout it out.
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2015please tell me what is the bases of your claim? do you have any scientific evidence for this B... moreI actually wasn't going to reply you considering how thick you are, but for the sake of anyone who might be affected by the thickness of your skull, I'm going to give you the scientific proof you're looking for. If you watch the video closely, you'll see clearly that there were no bubbles coming out of the submerged S6 edge even after passing the ten minute mark, not even a single bubble. And that is the scientific proof that you need, because if there's no bubble then it means that there's not a single drop of water has managed to get inside the device because there's no air being forced out of the device by water. And that is also why the iPhone 6 didn't even survive the one minute mark, because after just a few seconds of it being submerged it already started to have bubbles coming out of it drastically.
So there you go, your scientific proof. Now you don't have to wait for any other youtuber or reviewer to conduct one minute or five minute water test to know the result. You're welcome.
Have a look @ LG GJ & HTC Desire Eye, as well as Galaxy S5 Mini. You'll be surprised.
Shravan, 30 Mar 2015Nice fake name/identity you got there. You can only fool your fellow Samsung trollers with it.... moreHahaha.. First, it's my real name, and that Leon is a short for Leonardo, I don't use fake name for this account, but I won't be showing you my birth certificate just to prove it to you. But thanks for thinking that the name is nice :) Second, I think everyone would agree that the troll here is you because your comment is pure bashing without any appreciation or relation to the feat that Samsung has achieved with the S6 edge in the video of the article. But just out of curiosity, how long do think your phone would last if put under the same test? If your phone happens to be iPhone 6 then we already know how long. :)
Before powering off! Do you mean Water resistance or Water proof! Water resistance benchmark doesn't mean how much time takes before dead but how much time takes before a small danger possibility.
AnonD-7433, 30 Mar 2015What? Did I say that water would get in the S6 edge in less than a minute? Wow. You can't even... moreplease tell me what is the bases of your claim? do you have any scientific evidence for this BS claim that the 1 minute test will not damage GS6/Edge?
have you tried it yourself?
has anyone else tried it?
are you just guessing this? (so just say it is your guess)
how do you know that?
we should just believe you? why?
so please don't spout out utter BS if you have no evidence, or any ideas, specially when you can't back it up with hard evidences..
I say one minute drop in a water does the same damage as 20 minute, and proof will be on its way once big websites start to water test this phone, and you will see the damages in less than 2 minutes.
20 minutes test purely design for stupid people to think this phone survived the prolong period of water exposure, but in reality we all know it has failed. if the water is inside of the phone the phone is declared obsolete, finito , finished
It's pretty simple, drop your(s6) phone in a deep puddle or down the toilet, and it seems obvious it will survive , if its an oops , crickey, an grab it out, and that's what you want, protection against accidents, not stupidity. We don't know if it dropped in the pool and you jumped strait in 3/4seconds and dragged it out, who knows ? Also gsma said " some" drying, that don't mean much, question is, if after such treatment, its left in the customary rice container till its done its job.....without the phone being turned on, well, who knows.
As for the arguments by the people who just hate Samsung, for them it isn't even about the phone is just about those hated for Samsung, and yes, some rival phone firm sponsored YouTube video is bound to turn up, showing an s6 dipped, and then with the usual costume trickery, well be treated to the results of a phone that's been dragged through the Pacific ocean, passed off as the one that we saw being dipped.
I am only interested to see a 2 minutes test,
I bet this phone will fill with water, the 20 minutes test is pure gimmick to me,
show me the 2 minutes water test and lets see how much damage that does !
you guys think less then 20 minutes test?
I disagree, I say exactly the same damage as 20 minute test, and good luck using the phone afterwards because it simply keeps re-booting itself according to this article itself.
basically these phone wouldn't stand a chance in water, and thanks to this article to confirm it.
Is that true, I love this phone was planning to get this, but I heard it wasn't waterproof. Samsung did'nt mention it. Please be waterproof. Hope this is waterproof I love the S6 and Edge.
