    I know my phone is water resistant but I didn't not spend $800 to just dunk it in water for fun. I like the reassurance - which is all it is, really, reassurance- that my phone will be okay if it got wet. There is no way in hell that I will purposely put my phone in water then complain that something on the phone isn't working well. The app opens because of moisture. What more is there to understand?

    S6 Active owner here that went through this with Samsung and then not honoring water damage to my device. I guess I became such a pain in the rear, they finally gave in and repaired it. Like the S7, the Active is IP68 and get this: there is an underwater mode for the camera. When launching underwater mode, it says to use the volume keys to take pictures. Why did they put this into the software to begin with? It's water resistant, but we want you to believe the device can be used under water to take cool photos.

    I no longer treat my Active as water resistant or more durable than any other device. If anything, they should update the camera and remove that mode altogether.

    I don't NOT believe what they're saying, but I believe what they mean is that it can and should withstand that kind of water pressure for 30 minutes. Now... Why don't they fully honor these kinds of claims? It's hard to prove. Let's imagine that you measure 5' of water and put it in the water, and you put your hand in to grab it (assuming you have a 5 foot hand), you're raising the water pressure and therefore water would leak in. You'd go to Samsung and say that it was in 5 feet for 30 minutes and it broke, but it was more. They can't prove that it was or wasn't... Do you see what I mean?
