By now you know the story: a new phone is released and in a made rush for views, countless YouTubers come out of the woodwork and put the phone through a variety of “stress tests.” This is all in an effort to determine build quality by subjecting the phone to a series of drop tests, or even its water resistance by submerging it in water.
Like most Android devices these days, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge doesn’t advertise any kind of IP rating. It’s actually one of the few areas the phone was left wanting. But just because you wont find an Ingress rating on the phone, doesn’t mean it wont survive a quick dip in a puddle, or even a drop in a toilet. Most phones feature some level of water resistance, so it’s to be expected that the Galaxy S6 Edge would last a few minutes submerged in a bowl of water. But over 20 minutes? That’s pretty crazy. Check out TechSmartt’s video below for proof.
As a bonus, we found another video — presumably from the same chick that threw the Galaxy S6 to the floor like a firecracker — this time crushing some walnuts using the Galaxy S6 Edge as a hammer, on top of the regular Galaxy S6. We should warn you. The 240p video is not for the squeamish.
