    Default I dropped my S5 in the toilet...

    Okay.

    I read stories and I'm not going to lie I do have my phone when I use the washroom but hold on really tight.

    My only complaint is that it happened at work, I got text and slipped out of my hands. LOL

    If this was any other phone I would probably panic, freak out and cry. Nope this is the beauty and advantage, I simply picked it up washed both my hands and the S5.

    I went back and did my business went for break.

    Actually the marketing refers to it as "water-resistant", not water proof. Probably an out for them should your phone fry due to water exposure.

    If was before. Thank God. LOL

    Everyone here at work found out and didn't even know that it's Water Proof.

    I don't know and didn't want to risk it but is SOAP safe?

    I read somewhere its not perma water proof. You can only have it under water for like 30 seconds or so. Don't go swimming in it boys.

    Hopefully your model isnt the white version - it would stain easily

    I've seen a video of it being left in a pool for much longer. I don't recall how long but it was several minutes if not an hour. The phone survived fine.

    Glad to hear your S5 survived the "Toliet". This is a feature I would love see put on the Note4. If nothing more than a giving me a piece of mind while in the bathroom, rain, or around any water.

    It could've been the M8 but I had issues with it.
