[QUOTE=dbatech99;54692425]There's a YouTube vid showing very impressive water resistance of the G3. For some reason LG doesn't tout it.
If the G3 survived being submerged in water it was an experience based on pure luck. LG will never tout water resistant because it has none. The back cover offers 0 protection to the battery, Sim card and SD slot. The circuitry below is open to the back with actual holes. Water has full reign to enter the phone at numerous locations, not to mention the vulnerable Micro USB port. The Galaxy s5 achieves water resistance only by sealing the screen, and circuitry with adhesive, the back cover protects the battery and card slots with a gasket and the charging port has a water tight cover.
