Commercials for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge showed hip-hop's Lil Wayne pouring Champagne over the phone and dunking it in a fish tank. Not so fast. The publication repeated the test with a second unit, and experienced another failure.
A new leak seems to have detailed Samsung's long-rumored Galaxy Note 7 even further, revealing more of its possible specs and also giving people a better idea of what to expect.
In a statement, South Korea-based Samsung-which has been running ads featuring rapper Lil Wayne taking advantage of the S7 series' waterproof feature-said it is now speaking with Consumer Reports to "understand their experience" and plans to "closely explore their feedback".
When removed, the screen was obscured by green lines, tiny bubbles were visible in the lenses of the front- and rear-facing cameras, and the touchscreen wasn't responsive. It's worth noting that Consumer Reports states the Galaxy S7 Active was the only new Galaxy device to fail its water-immersion testing.
Consumer Reports says a Samsung phone that's advertised as being "water resistant" actually isn't. That's because each Galaxy Forever customer has the option to return the phone to Sprint in exchange for a new phone after 12 months of payments - a right that usually costs an extra $5 per month at Sprint for other phones. We also noticed water in the slot holding the SIM card. By contrast, Consumer Reports rates the S7 and S7 Edge phones as "Excellent" for their displays, battery life and cameras.
