    That's good to see. One of the complaints I always here is that the GG is not water-resistant. Looks like it is more so than many believed.

    It _is_ water resistant......not sure why so many reviewers said otherwise. It's IP55 rated, says so right in manual.

    Out of curiosity where does it say it on the manual. Everything I see in the included booklets is don't get it wet.

    Thanks for the link. For a while there it seemed like Samsung was being silent about the issue. Good to see they finally put it on their website.
