Well, phones are water resistant, but salt water is a whole different story and Samsung should have known that.
Water or water resistance doesn’t matter to me because I never drop my phones, headphones, or smartwatches in water. I rarely use it in the rain too. Why risk your devices. Just use them safely.
Samsung you deserve it.
I hope Samsung will be fined again for its mass “Green Line” issue that occurs on the S20 screen.

Even the Samsung S8 in this article. The fact is that it is not tested or rated for use under these conditions. Just like your iPhone. They are all prone to water damage.

When salt water dries, it tends to leave behind salt crystals that can damage seals. Mainly because of that. It shouldn’t really affect other things, if at all (glass and aluminum/stainless steel).

IP ratings are extremely well defined and specifically exclude chlorinated water (pool water) and salt water (seawater) from ANY rating. But stupid people can’t tell the difference between hyping up the ad to make it exciting to watch and what the IP rating actually is. No one wants to watch a smartphone ad where some guy explains IP rating specs for half a minute and how it actually affects water resistance. You advertise with a guy riding a huge wave or a photo of a scuba diver with a whale. It doesn’t mean you’re supposed to dive or surf with your phone. It’s just stupid.
In the meantime, I manage to use my iphone 12 pro max. And take underwater photos/videos of red garra while eating the dead skin off my feet with no problem. And after rinsing it with tap water and drying it for 24 hours. The speakers and the charging port work as if nothing had happened.
That’s why it’s stupid to pay for IP certifications. Also people are dumb. I take ANY water resistance as a last measure of protection, not “let’s surf with a phone stuck between my butt during a hurricane”.
It’s nice to know the phone has rubber seals all over the ports and speakers and I’ll understand that can protect the phone if the worst happens but I’m not going to intentionally dunk it in water . I’ve had good diver’s watches and have always avoided getting them wet even when washing my hands. If they got wet, fine, but I didn’t do it intentionally because it’s not necessary.
The IP rating is now a joke for advertising I guess

That guy in the only ad talking about how DisplayMate is the most reputable display testing organization in the feedback sidebar really made me laugh. It’s just hilarious to see in print.
And it’s also no one’s fault that kids don’t know the difference between tough and proof. But then again, many sellers don’t even know that. They only know money.
So? Sony started. Apple failed first, then Samsung. In Europe, the ad was changed immediately after Sony got caught. So if Australia first stopped now, it is several years behind!
