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
AnonD-397, 30 Mar 2015Good job Samsung.... S6 have good prevention for incidents... I am still carefoul with phones... moreCheaper LOL! Its the most costly phone samsung has ever produced! It would have been better if you didn't skip your maths classes.
Dota2proPlayer, 30 Mar 2015Underwater Test to a ridiculous phone.. oohhh c'mon SHAMEsung.Still far better than your phone, I assume an iCrap.
Dota2proPlayer, 30 Mar 2015Underwater Test to a ridiculous phone.. oohhh c'mon SHAMEsung.It wasn't Samsung who did the test.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2015i wish they would stop doing these tests, they are very misleading. any phone submerged in wat... moreYep. A more reasonable test would be to submerge the phone for (say) 5 minutes, then take it back and dry its outside. It WILL stop working after some time.
How long it takes for the damage to become apparent is irrelevant. The point is that the damage will happen.
Stop posting these stuffs GSMArena, haters haven't recovered from yesterday's news yet!
I've seen someone do this same test with an LG G3. It survived like 20-30 minutes underwater, as well as held under a faucet.
No IP Certification shouldn't exactly be a deal breaker these days unless you are working in a pool or something.
gsmarena would make sure Samsung would sell atleast 50% more devices ;)
Good job Samsung.... S6 have good prevention for incidents...
I am still carefoul with phones and I don't need waterproof...
S6 have efective protection for quick drops, rain and some incident situation...
maybe, this way is better for construction than waterproof, because is cheaper and still can protect phone from wather...
my galaxy xcover ip67 certified,still works after multiple water submerges,if your region is rainy or if you work on eain and dust conditions buy one with ip 67,68,or 69k
Underwater Test to a ridiculous phone.. oohhh c'mon SHAMEsung.
