Samsung stands behind the water resistance and IP68 certification of the Galaxy S7 Active

According to the user guide for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, the phone can be submerged in up to 5 feet of water for up to 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. In Consumer Reports' lab, two Galaxy S7 Active handsets were put in a pressurized tank to simulate a depth of just under 5-feet. They were in the tank for 30 minutes. When they were taken out of the tank, it was clear that water had infiltrated the screen and the devices had issues with their power buttons.
The user guide for the phone notes that "despite this (IP68) classification, your device is not impervious to water damage in any situation," which sounds like a statement designed to allow the manufacturer to cover a certain part of its anatomy. On Friday, Samsung issued a statement which said that the Galaxy S7 Active was thoroughly tested and that it stands behind the IP68 certification placed on the handset. The company added that it will replace water-damaged Samsung Galaxy S7 Active units under its standard limited warranty.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is an AT&T exclusive in the U.S.

Samsung has dropped the ball with the looks. The Galaxy S7 and the Note 7 look additional.

Tedkord: A manbaby who gets hurt and defensive when he sees Samsung Mobile receiving blows. Usually responsive with a cry baby response or a comment attacking the attacker, this animal typical gets pretty aggressive and hostile if anyone comes close to emotional abuse toward Samsung. Ideally, you should wear SPF300 to protect yourself from the heat coming off this guy's head when his circle jerk gets interrupted with any opposing view. Tedkord, CP39, is a water type Pokemon which can be found in the saltiest of environments. No need to use an Ultra Ball, for he is easy to trigger.

Show where I said the iPhone is bad our called anyone a sheep. I'll wait... All I did was state facts - the antenna issue was on all iPhone 4 units, it was a design flaw, and once Apple offered a full refund or free bumper, the issue was resolved. Your proof, as always, is not in the pudding.
