Samsung water resistance

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Water Test - Secretly Waterproof:Resistant? - YouTube 2015-03-30 08-39-41

Every time a new flagship smartphone comes out, YouTube reviewers and testers like to push them to the limit and see how far they can go when brutally tortured—for science, of course. And now that the Galaxy S6 is landing in the hands of some buyers, these tests are finally starting to hit the internet. One YouTuber tests the phone’s waterproof abilities despite it no longer technically being waterproof, and another just absolutely smashes the phone on the ground to see what happens…

This first video is definitely the tame one of the two. The Samsung Galaxy S6 (and S6 Edge) is technically no longer waterproof, but TechSmartt decided to test this for the themselves. It turns out that the phone was able to last quite a while before starting to act weird.

Thankfully the timer is video is in fast-forward most of the time, as the Galaxy S6 actually managed to chug along under water for quite some time…

Secondly, we have a Korean video that is definitely not your typical YouTube drop test. While many drop test videos that hit the web are more formal experiments and comparisons, this user simply decided to smash the phone against the ground as hard as they could to see what would happen. Amazingly, the phone seems to have a display that’s intact and works perfectly even after being thrown on the ground repeatedly.

This one will make any tech enthusiast cringe a bit…
