    Don't be pu**y's. I've been using Samsung's under the water, in pools, oceans, gym sinks, etc since the S6 Active. None of them had water issues, not 1 problem.

    IP68 doesn't mean protection against air, humid, full of steam, or not. Fill the inside of the phone with steam from the shower, then let it cool and you have a phone full of water.

    Some phones are almost waterproof, some will leak under a gentle stream from a sink faucet. You've been lucky. Please don't suggest that others take the same chances, unless you're prepared to pay for their phone repairs.

    Getting lucky is not the same thing as being smart. Also, clean up the language or find another place to hang out.

    If it got caught it the rain while you were out I'm sure it'll be find as mine has been in the rain a few times. Just keep things in moderation and you'll be fine.

    working in mobile we test the water resistance a lot and Samsung always delivers... despite the iPhones water resistance rating it under performed in that area. thank God for demos

    Yes, rainwater, assuming that it's not coming in at excessive speed/force, is one of the few things that these IP ratings protect against.

    Water Resistant not water proof. Also water damage is not covered under warranty.
    I can confirm it voids the warranty. Do not risk it. Used my phone well within the IP68 rating and it failed. Fought with Samsung for a month to back their claims of and finally received confirmation Samsung would replace my phone. Two weeks after they received my phone it was approved internally for replacement. Three weeks after approval and I still haven't received a phone. Multiple calls and multiple escalations to Executive Relations (case management). Support has been and continues to be a nightmare. Keep your phones out of the water.

    Fog is water droplets suspended in air, so if the phone is waterproof you're fine.

    Steam is a gas, so it's not the same thing.

    By definition steam and wet steam are two different forms of steam. Regardless its water and can get into your phone. Too bad my bathroom is so big steam doesn't have any chance to build up. Carry on.

    I NEVER take my phone near water. I don't take it into the kitchen nor bathroom. I have no intention of being the one to tell Samsung the phone did get damaged in water. I'm happy knowing that if I get caught in the rain my phone will be ok

    Thanks for posting it, but why the drop in resolution? YouTube accepts 4k uploads.

    Wow. Are you worried about splashing, or about dropping it into water? I'd be more afraid about dropping it onto a solid surface than into a liquid.

    Many of us use the phone underwater, as it is designed for, and reports of water damage appear rarely if ever. It should be noted though that the phone is not advertised to be safe in salt or chlorine, but in practice that doesn't seem to be a problem, especially if you soak the phone in plain water shortly afterward.

    If they don't warranty water damage, it isn't meant to be in the water. Getting caught in the rain or something, maybe, but it's it's not meant to he an underwater Camera. IMHO

    'Nuff said. Purposely put your phone underwater, and you assume all liability for any water damage. If that's a chance you are willing to take, more power to you.

    My Pixel 2 is water resistant but I still choose to keep it out of and away from water, rain, snow, etc; as much as possible. But different strokes for different folks!

    I will never intentionally put my $1200 device in water. it's water RESISTANT not water PROOF. Two different meanings. I just know that if my phone accidentally falls in a puddle or gets wet from rain it'll be okay. but i will never put it in water just because "other people do it".
