The Galaxy S6 spends 3 minutes in a bowl of Pepsi - now that's a sticky situation

The Galaxy S6 spends 3 minutes in a bowl of Pepsi - now that's a sticky situation
When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6, it became obvious that the premium design of the device took its toll in the form of some practical features. Unlike its predecessor – the Galaxy S5 – it doesn't have a microSD slot for storage expansion, doesn't have an easily swappable battery, and is no longer water-resistant. Thankfully, the Galaxy S6 Active, which was recently released, aims to please users who tend to put their smartphones through conditions a bit harsher than normal, and packs a protective armor, which provides water resistance.

So, it may have lost its IP 67 rating, but how susceptible is the Galaxy S6 to liquid damage? Will it die as soon as it gets splashed? Can it spend some time under water before giving up? Well, the video below may provide the answer to that.

YouTuber "adrianisen" seems to harbor some kind of hate either for flagships or for carbonated drinks. He enjoys pouring a bottle of Coke (or Pepsi, in the case here) in a plastic container and submerging an expensive smartphone model in it. Before, we've seen him do it with the Xperia Z3 and the Galaxy S5 – a meaningful test, seeing as both devices were toted as water-resistant.

But what about the Galaxy S6 – could it survive? Surprisingly – yes – though, the video does not examine whether the earpiece or microphone have been affected in any way. Needless to say, we highly recommend you not try this with your own handset, and to keep protecting it from spills, just to be on the safe side.

Almost all flagships in 2015 have water repelling coating on the internal components, similar to the one Motorola uses. M9, G4 and S6 have that and hence it makes them splash proof.

He does excessive amount of videos comparing phones so it is easy to find something to watch.

And he got a ton of money to buy the 3 to 4 same phones. Really I wonder how many iphone 6 he has. One has ios 8, one is running ios 9 and so on. Damn! That guy is rich

This is getting tiresome. Instead of showcasing creativity, they just stir controversy to gain hits, and money in the process.. They are not getting my view, that's a fact.

Well, it survives now but it will probably "die" in the next hours or days.

These "tests" are really dumb. The "will it blend" started it all several years ago, and was caused my lips to curl just slightly. Now everyone wants to test everything. I should do a video "What happens when I drop this S6 in a wall cavity for 60 years?" *60 years later* "You won't believe what happened!"

if they put that white fruit on the left into the Pepsi, that fruit is as good as dead after 10 seconds.
