Default water damage?

Has anyone found any information on how samsung plans to deal with an S5 that has water damage. being that the phone is supposed to be water resistant ( and I have watched a few blogger test of the water proofing with surprisingly good results) also post general water resistant discussions here

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
