I tested its waterproof capabilities even though the back cover wasn't properly aligned. Every thing was good. No water got inside the internals.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing, I would have never tried that, though it should of course not be any poblem since it is IP67 certified.

Even though no water gets in, I have a question again. The water does go inside the back cover but it doesn't go as the rubber line which is a good thing (That's how it is supposed to work).

I always wipe the water inside after a bath but if I am at a pool for example and I put the phone inside the water but then I don't wipe the water inside for about, 6-7 hours, would there be a problem?

Anyone knows if it is on to not wipe the inside of the phone for a few hours?

That part is considered to be harmless to get wet, so it isn't a problem if you do not remove the water there for even forever.

I have one last concern and I hope other Galaxy S5 users can help. When you remove the battery cover, you will notice that the area where the side bezel and the back of the phone are connected, it looks like it is melted in order to prevent water.

However, not all the area looks like it is melted. For example, at the area of the bezel where the volume buttons are, there is a small gap between the bezel and the back part of the phone and I can put my nail inside the gap.

I am wondering if all units have this gap or if my device is faulty. Any help is appreciated.

I have the exact same small gap at the same location, so I think it is normal and is that way by design.

Thank god. I thought I was screwed. Especially because my beatiful S5 has been diving for the days in the pool. Enjoying vacations. Taken with the Galaxy S5 front facing camera
