Consumer Reports: Samsung phone not actually water resistant
Consumer Reports says a Samsung phone that's advertised as being "water resistant" actually isn't. The problem appears limited to the Galaxy S7 Active, a rugged model available only through AT&T in the U.S. The standard S7 and S7 Edge models have the same claims on water resistance and passed tests. Consumer Reports, a non-profit organization that is well respected for its product testing, said Friday that it can't recommend the Active because it doesn't meet Samsung's own claims.
