Because there is video about S7 totally not responsive: https://youtu.be/TodYtUqsg4U . Also so you know: heavy rain is deadly - touchscreen respond to every drop. Again non-edge sibling lost.

-Samsung always say 'water resistant. I think its good, so people do not submerge it. In case people do it, it will mostly survive. Its better than saying its waterproof with many limitation.
-Samsung took a risk by adding waterproof feature to dual glass design, while sony moved to matte glass and now metal back. i think Samsung acknowledge about self cracking screen. So they streghten the glass with 3D thermo process.
- moist sensor is good idea. It means samsung think about anything as usual. It need additional hardware and software. This kind of skill sony never has.

I've used the BT shutter from SOOCOO S60 with my smartphones (Huawei Mate 8, Meizu Pro 5 and Xperia Z5) and it's working.
even can use under water you must find the shutter button dont miss press it , if they have a real physical shutter button it will more handy. S7 also could not attach strap, once it drop off under water, it could a hard time.
