It isn't supposed to be waterproof. It's supposed to be water RESISTANT for shallow water (1 meter I believe) for 30 minutes or less.

Point made and that is what I meant. But still curious if Samsung is going to stand behind that

Yeah how do you/they prove that it leaked at 1.1 meters or .9 meters?

I have a feeling that it will usually swing their way and they won't cover it....

I read somewhere they won't cover water damage at all

They did the same thing with the s4 active
