Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Active has come under fire after consumer reports revealed that the Samsung’s latest is not water resistant.
As per Android Authority, the Consumer Reports ran a water-resistance test on two Galaxy S7 Active device, the devices were immersed in 5 feet of water, for 30 minutes. However both devices were unable meet the advertised water resistance.
The tests caused flickering screen and moisture inside its parts, as Samsung Active were unable to pass the test.
The South Korean conglomerate however, has issued a press statement, in which it has backed its claims that the Galaxy S7 Active is, IP68 certified and it stands behind its standard limited warranty.
“The Galaxy S7 active passed rigorous tests to ensure IP68 certification for water resistance,” said Samsung in a statement. “Samsung stands behind this water resistance certification, and will replace any Galaxy S7 active under its standard limited warranty, should water damage occur,” it added.
But there is some good news too, as Samsung’s other S7 siblings i.e. the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were able to pass the test with ease.
