The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge went on sale last week, both handsets are designed to be waterproof and now the guys from SquareTrade decided to test put how waterproof the handsets were.
As well as testing out the new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for water proofing they also ran a number of torture tests on the handsets, have a look at the video below.
SquareTrade Labs found both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to be water-resistant, but they still stumbled when it came to screen durability. The iPhone 6s, with its ion-strengthened glass, proved to have the sturdiest screen of all.
For the latest round of Breakability tests, Squaretrade Labs added two new robots: the Deep Water DunkBot and the TumbleBot. The Deep Water DunkBot submerges phones under five feet of water for 30 minutes. To mimic the repeated tumbles that smartphones often take, SquareTrade also created the TumbleBot, which continually drops devices in an enclosed chamber at a rotational speed of 50 revolutions per minute for 30 seconds.
