The Samsung Galaxy S6 might not be water resistant - would that be a deal breaker for you?


Last month, we heard that the upcoming Galaxy S6would not be water resistant, thus missing one of the important features of Samsung's former flagship - the Galaxy S5 (pictured above). Of course, for now we can't be absolutely sure of this, but, if these leaked photos (published earlier today) show the real S6, it's pretty clear that the new handset will, indeed, not have a water resistant body. And the same can probably be said about the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Earlier this week, Samsung aired a commercial to remind us that the Galaxy S5 was "water resistant" and "irresistible", possibly implying that this would remain its only high-end handset that isn't afraid of water.

Sure enough, if we don't take into consideration the Galaxy S5 and Sony's Xperia Z handsets, water resistant flagships are hard to find anyway. But that doesn't mean some people don't highly appreciate water resistance on phones. This being said, we want to know if you, our readers, think that the absence of this feature would be a deal breaker. Obviously, the question is addressed only to those who are considering getting a Galaxy S6.

Assuming you want to buy a Galaxy S6, would the absence of water resistance be a deal breaker for you?
