Video: this LG washer tried but failed to drown the water-resistant Samsung Galaxy S7
A video blogger by the name of Max Lee decided to see how the Samsung Galaxy S7 fares a full washing machine cycle. Interestingly, Lee used an LG Washer for this test, which is a nice touch. After all, what other washer would better fit the role other than one made by Samsung's cross-town rival?
As you can notice in the video below, the Samsung Galaxy S7 appeared to have passed the test with flying colors. Sure, the handset itself was protected by what appears to be TPU clear cover, which probably offers a bit more protection against water pressure, and the phone was washed alongside with laundry, which was probably the only reason why the screen survived the drying cycles. The phone's camera, the microphone, and everything else worked just fine after a 45-minute water treatment.
This probably goes without mention, but do not try to replicate this Samsung Galaxy S7 water resistance test at home. However, if you accidentally throw your jeans in the washer with the Samsung Galaxy S7 in the back pocket, the phone actually has a shot of surviving without notable damage.
