    For some reason it's only Google that does this. But Google randomly pops up after I've been playing with my phone in the water. Everything else works just fine. I don't know what to do. After about 2-3 after it fully dries this does not happen. Google never pops up randomly if I don't take it in water. Is this a app problem or what? It just piped up 3 times while I was typing this.

    I tested my S7E in the shower, over the weekend (see my post). The shower water was registering as screen touches. Was there splashing on the screen?

    Yea i know that Drops of water are the same as a touch. But it's been underwater a few times today. It's fully dry. Well, the outside is. It's just about an 1-2 hours after water use Google now always randomly pops up and I can't use the physical button either. I have to back out of it with the arrow key.

    My guess is water is underneath the home button. Holding the home button causes Google Now to launch normally, so the water is probably affecting the sensor underneath the buttom.

    Blow around the home button and dry face down on a paper town so you can notice if water is absorbed on paper towel.

    You will be fine.

    Also keep in mind that the phone is merely water resistant, it isn't designed to be used under water.

    That's what it is I believe. But I have tried that a little. I have dried it off a lot and I know that speaker is crap until it dries. Water came out when I blew into it. About and hour later it worked. But is their a way to disable that button until the phone fully dries? Then I can turn it back on?

    "IN" 5 feet of water, not dropping it into 5 feet of water or pouring 5 feet of water on it. It's water-resistant - that means that pouring or moving water can still get into it.

    If you spill something on the phone with low velocity it'll probably survive, but it's not meant to be taken into water.

    Samsung does claim that it can survive in up to 5 foot of water for 30 minutes. Now the only way for that too happen is to either A) have it drop into water on purpose or B) accidentally. Is there any other way for that too happen? Nobody accidentally places there phone in 5 feet of water gently....

    But i digress. It's water resistant not water proof. The OP should know better and if the phone gets destroyed by repeated dunking, oh well. It wasn't made for everyday scuba diving lessons.

    You are wrong. It is waterproof up to 4-5feet for up to 30min. Don't post if you don't have accurate information.

    You can disable Google Now, but you need the home button. Disable Google Now via the Google App.

    I have to ask this, you aren't charging the S7E via the charge port immediately after the water submerge are you????? You have to wait a few hours until the charge port fully air dries.

    Five feet of water means underwater. What else could it mean? It is capable of doing it because it works perfect after it dries. Yes it gets in the ports but samsung said too me when I called them and went by their that it can be underwater. I just had it in the water in and out for about 10 min. Maybe 5. That's not the point. The point is how to get Google from popping up randomly

    I don't drop the phone. I hold it underwater with me for like 3-5 seconds. Just taking small videos. I was gonna take it down some water slides this summer. That means it's not even gonna be under water. I just wanna know if their is a way to disable the Google now from popping up just until it dries fully under the physical button.

    Put it in a bowl of rice and leave it overnight. This should absorb all moisture and your phone would run fine.

    Samsung's site. First thing there....what does it say? There is a little "1" next to it as a disclaimer....here it is:

    1Water resistant up to 5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes; rinse residue/dry after wet.

    If it was waterproof. it would say "waterproof". But it doesn't. Facts are facts straight from the horses mouth. And nowhere does it state you can "repeatedly" dunk your phone and it will still work after so many attempts.

    You are getting into semantics now...but you are right, when you said, "nowhere does it say you can repeatedly dunk..* that is funny, but not to him.

    Why that guy thought that was okay, I will never know.

    I know it's symantics lol, but that is what it says. My point is is that just because it's water resistant, doesn't mean it can be used like the OP is doing and it still work after so many times.

    My take on the water resistance of this phone is I never ever intend to get it wet (apart from a bit of rain) but I like the reassurance that if I do then it should be OK. If I wanted a camera to actually use regularly under water I would buy a waterproof camera or a waterproof case for the phone. I wouldn't be using it as it is

    Let me apologize in advance for my reply. I'm an engineer. Any wording on that page is just BS created by the marketing people and the lawyers. They always screw up engineering requirement and specifications. If you want to be technical you need to go into the specs, which says that Galaxy S7 is certified to IP68. The IP Code is an international standard for protection against ingress (stuff getting into equipment).

    The first number is protection against solid particles. '6' means "Dust tight" "No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust tight). A vacuum must be applied. Test duration of up to 8 hours based on air flow." This is the highest rating against dust and solid particles.

    The second number is protection against liquids. '8' means "Immersion 1 m or more" (1m = 39in) "The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects. The test depth and/or duration is expected to be greater than the requirements for IPx7." (IPx7 says at least 1 meter for 30 minutes) This is the 2nd highest rating against liquids. To move up to IPx9 you have to protect against high temperature water jets.

    Ultimately, your phone is meeting the requirement of IP68 because there is no harmful damage from the water after it dries.

    5 feet of measurement in the water. For a time 3o min. Can only mean one thing. The phone is working fine. Will you stop with technicalities. One or disclaimer doesn't matter. If samsung stands by that one line then I will believe them. 30 min max. And I only had in like 3 feet of water for 10 seconds.

    And? If you constantly wet your phone, on purpose, whether it's ip68 or ipxx, and it fails, Samsung will not guarantee it. I bet you on that.

    There is one thing doing it accidentally and another doing it on purpose. They say it's ip68 so you don't have to worry if it gets wet or you fall into a pool but intentionally abusing it can and will make it fail at some point.
