Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are water resistant but after spending your hard-earned money, one can't help wonder if submerging the handsets in water may impact on some vital functionality of the smartphones.

Samsung launched the two mobile phones during the 2016 Mobile World Congress and announced that the devices were IP68 certified, which means totally dust tight and protected against complete and continuous submersion in water.

"The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge go everywhere you go. In the rain, the shower, or the pool for up to 30 minutes in a depth of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) or below. We've also worked out how to completely seal off the inside-components while keeping micro USB ports, earphone jacks open; so you won't have to fiddle with extra caps or covers," says Samsung.

Water and dust resistance features of the new Samsung devices will attract many customers who want to take the phone outdoors or want to take underwater pictures. However, it seems that the Galaxy S7 edge does not charge if the phone detects moisture in the USB port.

"I took an underwater photo this morning and put the phone away (S7E). 4 hours later I plugged it into the wall (fast charger) for a top-up and the phone popped up an error message 'moisture detected in charging port..' and the phone won't charge," complained a Galaxy S7 edge owner on XDA Developers forum.

The Galaxy S7 edge owner was told by other users to dry the phone with a hair dryer or put the device in a rice box to get rid of the moisture, which the handset owner did. However, the handset would still not charge.
