The iphone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are shown here being tested in various amounts of water. Are they really waterproof? Obviously we do not suggest that you try this at home. This iphone experiment is merely to show the varying capability of the iphone 7 as compared to the Samsung Galaxy 8 after being submerged in water.
The results of our waterproof phone experiment were not what we expected. One of the phones was simply not functional after the phone had been immersed in several feet of water. The other phone actually continued to work perfectly even after being in several feet of water. We were actually able to demonstrate a functioning screen and phone with a heavy layer of water still remaining on the screen.
