Yesterday we saw the new Samsung Galaxy S6 receive a beating that it handled surprisingly well. Following that, we have another test that shows what the phone can handle when water is involved. If you were hoping to take your Galaxy S6 SCUBA diving with you, this news will be disappointing to you (though, you really shouldn’t take any phone SCUBA diving…).

A YouTuber by the name of TechSmartt did a water test on Samsung’s newest flagship to see if the phone was up to snuff of its younger brother, the S5. However, the results show that the S6 is only water-resistant, though it is worth noting that even that wasn’t announced by Samsung. See the mentioned video below.

As you can see, water is still not best friend’s with the S6. The good news though is an accidental spill while at a restaurant won’t be the end-all be-all of your fancy new S6.

  1. I’m very confused. i have an s6 and just rinsed it in water. It no longer works. I called Tmobile and they said the s6 is NOT water resistant!! WTF?!?!?

  2. It absolutely was marketed as water resistant. Even the new phones S7 and S7 Edge are marketed as water resistant, too. It is not water proof but it is water resistant. Verify the difference as they are two different things.

  3. I dropped in the toilet today…it was in for a few seconds. I had a very thin case on it the case that goes with the flat disc charger- I dunno if that protected it any way by keeping water out.

    It was malfunctioning when it first happened, turning off and on, not doing doing anything at all. Showing I had 3-5% battery when it was 90something %. I went home and put it in rice it’s at least 12 hours later and the phone appears fine.
