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.
try liquid hydrogen like the iPhone 6 did! :)
7 minutes and still alive
so the inferior S6 can't claim the throne of the superior S5!
that was to be expected...
Even if it's water resistant i still wouldn't risk it. Unless it's waterproof then i'll bring it for some underwater photography. Damm i like that screen.
Surviving for 20 minutes in water is 1 thing, the next is, bye bye warranty.
Ding Dong, 30 Mar 2015and that is what they said dry it propperlyand clean it properly too
i wish they would stop doing these tests, they are very misleading. any phone submerged in water (except for ip67 with ports closed) will eventually stop working, I can take 20 seconds to days, but as soon as water is inside the damage will eventually take its toll as it will corrode whatever it gets onto. If a phone is not ip67, then you should never submerge it, and if it does seek professionals to open and clean it properly.
