Anonymous, 30 Mar 2015please tell how can you be 100%sure if this test is not done? we should just believe you? y... moreWhat? Did I say that water would get in the S6 edge in less than a minute? Wow. You can't even read properly, no wonder you're having a hard time understanding what I'm trying to say. I said less then a minute is how long it takes for water to get in a phone and ruin it if (get that IF) the phone is NOT properly protected from water! It means that the S6 edge is so well protected that even after 25 minutes it can still work even though there were some problems. ANY other unprotected phone would have the exact same fate as the iPhone 6 which couldn't even turn the screen on! The S6 edge IS well protected from water, just don't put it in the water for too long, and by too long I mean over 20 minutes in that same depth, and make sure that you completely dry it afterward. If you still don't get it then don't bother replying.

we should just believe you? you don't understand the simple physics here that the reason they left it there 20 minutes was purely to make it look good, the water gets inside just like iphone after 1 minutes as you said it yourself.please don't be stupid and be more wise about what you read.
this phone will not even 5 minutes and soon will be video all over utube to prove it. just wait 3 weeks.

It only need less than a minute! And that is why I am 100% sure that if it was only being submerged for 5 minutes or even ten, the galaxy S6 edge would still work perfectly fine, because if it wouldn't it would already being fried within the first couple of minute! Get it already??
Jovan Leon, 30 Mar 2015By 'survive' it means it didn't die out. Even after almost 25 minutes of being submerged it di... moreplease don't be stupid!
the phone survived!! wow! is it human ?
what is the point of having a phone which is partially functioning and like aquarium you can see the water from inside?
please answer that, thanks, remember this is not human, it is phone, and as a phone you want to use all function and it doesn't give you that after being dried! so the test concludes it has failed.
ALSO, how do you possibly know within 5 MINUTES no drop of water get inside!? have you tested it?
the 20 minutes is just a gimmick for stupid people to think this has survived under water for 20 minutes, think about it, what makes the water gets it after 5 minutes and not before ?
the pressure is the same, so the water will work itself inside from the moment the phone has been dropped in the water, actually the damage is done in the first 5 minutes rather than the last 15 minutes.
open your eyes, and understand the BS this article is trying to feed you.
this phone FAILED the water test completely, I don't care about iphone, and I don't want to buy iphone, so what iphone done is irrelevant to me.
[deleted post]By 'survive' it means it didn't die out. Even after almost 25 minutes of being submerged it didn't die out! That's the definition of' 'survive'! Do you know how long the iPhone 6 lasted before it went completely blank and fried out from the inside to the point where the screen won't even turn on? Less than a minute!! And you're complaining about the S6 that lasted that long. That's called ignorance. And no, 5 minutes is NOT the same as 25 minutes. If you're able to use common sense or some logic, you'll know that if it was just 5 minutes being submerged it won't even have a single drop of water in it.
Jovan Leon, 30 Mar 2015Do you know how long the iPhone 6 lasted in a similar test? 1 minute. Yeah, that's right. 1 fr... morethis test clearly showed the phone is totally not usable or fully functional after 20 minutes under water, I am sure the result would be exactly the same if it was 5 minutes rather than 20 minutes,
it is rather stupid to claim the phone survived the water !!
kind of misleading and lie if the phone keeps reboot itself and water is visible from inside of the phone.
I don't care about iphone, I am not a iphone fan, I wanted to buy this phone but after knowing it is not water proof I will not touch it, and also it looks so fragile on any drop, considering the edge being exposed, so you lose your £700 phone even if it is covered with the case.
I bet loads of test will proof the Samsung failed yet again to listen to their fans.
Do you know how long the iPhone 6 lasted in a similar test? 1 minute. Yeah, that's right. 1 friggin minute! Actually it didn't even complete a full minute before the screen started to die out, and then it's totally fried! He couldn't turn it on no matter how hard he try. But you know what did turned on? The flashlight! Lol I literally burst out a laugh when the iPhone's flashlight suddenly turned on. So if you accidentally drop you're iPhone 6 in the water and aren't able to pull it out under a minute or so, at least you'll still have a flashlight at your disposal! Lol that is just pathetic.
I think a better test would be to drop it in the water for 20sec., try everything, if it is working -> good i know it can take some water and it is still fine.
Now i know that it is destroyed after 22 minutes, but maybe it would have had problems after 1 minute too...
TechSmartt reported this loads of BS?
how could this phone claim to survived the drop while it is keep rebooting itself and water shows from outside!!?
people are right to question this article!
dropping phone in a bowl of water is different from dropping it in a bucket of water..
if we drop it deeper , water will enter in no time because of pressure
Billy, 30 Mar 2015If you fell off a cliff and broke a leg would you say you survived the fall?please don't be stupid..
this is phone, it is not human to feel you are alive BUT CAN'T function correctly.
the phone keeps rebooting itself, and the water is visible from outside, is that something you want to use as a partially functioning phone and be happy to think it survive the water????
it is rather stupid article to even claim this phone survived?!!!! how?
the most stupid this claim is...!
the phone does Not survived this test, if it is water inside...
so basically it faild...
This phone survives accidental drop into water and that is the main concern for any phone. No need to keep it 20 or more minutes. Even 5 minute survival is amazing.
Why are the ignorant people commenting here like their phone can do better?? People, your phone is so last decade compare to this phone, and yet this phone can survive that long being submerged underwater? That is just simply amazing! It means no rain water can get through and you can even take some snapshots in the pool if you like and it will still be working perfectly fine. Even if you're a hater doesn't mean you have to be dumb too, you know.
it seems to me GSM arena is trying hard to make sure samsung get the publicity.
but sadly that is a key deal breaker for many.
beside what is the point the phone didn't really survived it!!!!!
this shows this phone actually Doesn't survive a water, how can this article claim it would survive the water if the phone after drying keeps re-booting itself and show water in the lense section???
water proofing is the key feature for me, and I will NOT touch this phone with no certified water proofing feature..
no worth the money with no water proofing
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2015I've seen someone do this same test with an LG G3. It survived like 20-30 minutes underwater, ... more"No IP Certification shouldn't exactly be a deal breaker these days unless you are working in a pool or something."
And even then why on earth are you taking your phone with you?! >_>
thats a wow! still working after the submerging test, nice work samsung, thumbs up
