We try to drown Samsung's S, Edge and Active

Phones
[MUSIC] The saga of Samsung's waterproof phones continues. Samsung says that it's Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and S7 Active are all rated IP68 which means that they should be able to work after being submerged in up to five feet of water For 30 minutes. Long story short, we ran a bunch of water tests on the Galaxy S7 active. Some passed, some failed, some really failed, like when we threw it in the pool. Samsung said that they found a problem in the initial production line run and that's the phone that we had, they fixed it now, so we're gonna test it again and we're bringing some buddies along. These two other phones that have the exact same rating. These phones are charged and they're fresh out of the box. I didn't drop them, I didn't thunk them, they're basically pristine. So, all three of them are gonna go in the pool, and we'll see if they survive. [MUSIC] Well this is very, very good news. All three phones have survived and the way I know this is because I can see the time and the date on the always on the display. I just retrieved them from the pool so they still have water droplets on the outside. And you can see a little bit of water in the jacks, but the camera lenses are clear, I don't see any water in there, on this phone at least. That's the Edge, and on the Active, my eye looks good. I don't see any fogging on The cameras, all the waters seems to be on the outside. Most waterproof phones have nano coating inside and that's what repels that water. So the presence of water is not the problem. It's only a problem if the presence of water starts to affect the way that the phone performs. And a problem we had before was that the water got on the inside. So far, it looks pretty good. There's a screen for operational. I can take a photo and it doesn't look blurry. That was a problem we had with one of the active, when it failed, the photo looks very blurry. So I'm just gonna go through. I'm gonna restart the phone and make sure that all the buttons function as they're supposed to. And so this one appears to be working just fine Well all three Samsung Galaxy S7 phones here passed our pool test which is a good indication that Samsung did indeed fix the problem that plagued our first S7 active. This is great news because with that water resistant rating it means that you as a phone owner will have one less thing you have to worry about. If you're at the lake. At the beach. Or even at the pool. [WATER SPLASHING] Yeah, it's good. [MUSIC]
