Galaxy S7 Active Fails Water Resistance Test [Video]
Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, or in other words, a device that is expected to survive under five feet of water for at least 30 minutes, has recently failed a water resistance test conducted by Consumer Reports. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is a protected version of the flagship S7 and it is targeted at those users who like pushing their phones to the limit.
Below you can take a look at the short video highlight of the recent water resistance test.
When we removed the phone, the screen was obscured by green lines, and tiny bubbles were visible in the lenses of the front- and rear-facing cameras. The touchscreen wasn’t responsive. Following our standard procedure when a sample fails an immersion test, we submitted a second Galaxy S7 Active to the same test. That phone failed as well.
Samsung has already commented on the issue and claimed that some phones may be defective and as a result not so water resistant as they should be.
Apple is expected to release the iPhone 7 this fall. This device may become the first water resistant smartphones manufactured by the Cupertino tech giant.
