Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Comes Waterproof With Newest Improvements
According to some new test results, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are the best recommendation when it comes to browsing, and these flagships will help many people to keep in touch with their loved ones.
However, if you like adrenaline activities, such as mountain biking, playing basketball or doing anything that increases the risk of dropping your phone on a hard surface, the latest iPhone models might still be the best choice.
According to the latest torture tests published by SquareTrade, both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge surviving in water longer than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but not without getting permanent damage. During the tests, all four flagships have been submerged in 1.5 meters of water for about 30 minutes. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge still functioned fine after they’ve been dried off, but it seems that the audio was permanently distorted and muffled.
We remind you that Apple never confirmed the rumors according to which the iPhone 6s is being water-resistant and this is a good thing, because when the iPhone 6 was tested in the same conditions, it suffered similar damages to its sound system and moisture got under the display glass. The device has “died” in less than 30 minutes after staying under water.
Here is the video that SquareTrade has posted with the tests we’ve talked above:
According to partners such as Verizon, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are lasting under water at a depth of 5 feet, for 30 minutes, which is exactly the test that SquareTrade has performed on both devices.
However, if you go now to Samsung’s official launch page, you can see that the Korean multinational conglomerate company claims that these devices are water-resistant to a maximum depth of 1 meter, for 30 minutes.
