Samsung Galaxy S7: Will Drown If Too Hot

By  | 

Unlike the previous models, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is now IP38 certified which means the Samsung Galaxy S7 is waterproof as long as you don’t submerge it in more than 1.5 meters of water but that is not the only thing you need to watch out from.

Since it is said to be waterproof, people have been testing it out in the shower and in the bathtub and while it should be safe since a bathtub is not going to be 1.5 meters deep so users still got their device damage.

The reason is because while the smartphone is made to handle being submerged underwater, it is not made to withstand high temperature. Many users have already reported that their phone broke after submerging it in hot bath water or running it under the hot shower.

To make sure you do not break the Samsung Galaxy S7, maybe try showering or taking a bath without the smartphone.
