Galaxy S5 Holds Water, Literally, IP67 Certification Is Real

Samsung Galaxy S5 reviews are coming fast and furious, bridging the gap between the phone's announcement two weeks ago, and the actual April 11th release date. The latest one again comes from Russia, and this time we get to see how the IP67 certification of the phone holds water, literally.

The reviewers go through the usual routine of musings over the design, interface, chipset performance, and camera sampling, but in the meantime they decide to do a little waterboarding exercise on the device, whose results you can briefly see in the video below. The overall conclusions are what one would expect from an oversaturated AMOLED display, and a fast Snapdragon 801 processor, but the video playback test is what caught our attention. The Galaxy S5 survived 10 hours of continuous 1080p video playback - a sixth shy of the 12 hours promised in the S5 presentation. The conditions of the test were at full screen brightness, though, and with Wi-Fi on, which means that Samsung's new flagship might ultimately crush the endurance benchmarks, in relation to its battery capacity.

We will just spoil the ending by saying that the IP67 certification is real, despite that Samsung humbly calls the phone "water-resistant". It not only survives splashes of water jetting on it from all sides, but can also be immersed fully in up to three feet of the liquid, and stay there for half an hour, just as its IP67 tag suggests.
