    Hi guys. new owner of a samsung s6.
    I know they are not water proof like samsung s5

    I notice in my trousers/pants I have quite wide pockets. phone isn't quite covered!

    Now when it rains, I'm a bit worried about rain causing issues in pocket, as the rain gets in quite easily.
    am I being paranoid here?

    Mine was fine got caught in a large storm last week. Never had a phone die for rain, just use common sense: don't pull it out outside while raining.

    Nope. Just don't jump in a pool with it still in your pocket. I doubt a rain drop or two would hurt it. If it's a concern and you don't want to go commando, the Lifeproof Frè case provides more than adequate protection.

    Ive never had any issue using my phone in light rain. Of course I could see one perfectly aligned rain drop entering the right hole or crevice and potentially causing an issue. I wouldn't worry about it in your pants, but maybe stick your hand in your pocket to cover your phone if its raining? Or stick it in your bag until you get to your destination?

    I see what you mean guys.

    I think that's what I'm worried about is a few rain drops getting in the top of my phone whilst vertical in my pocket.

    Worried? Yes. A lot of money this has cost me. I think I'll always place it in my pocket with the top edge facing towards the sky instead of the bottom edge with the charger pfhat and that

    I was in Bristol for the spring race this year (Many NASCAR folks started calling it the "24 Hours of Bristol" due to all the rain delays. hehe). I was caught out in several downpours with my S6 that day...couldn't avoid a little rain water on it...and never experienced any problems or lasting effects from it.

    Light water drops won't hurt. As long as it's freshwater and not salt water or chlorinated water.

    As others have mentioned, if it's a concern, then maybe look into investing in a waterpoof case.

    This video makes me wonder if they actually made the phone water resistant just didn't want too put it on there due to having people complain when the phone actually got water damage and having to replace them. What do you think?

    One less reason to get the GS6 Active.
