What’s the difference between the regular Samsung Galaxy S6 and the rugged Samsung Galaxy S6 Active? Aside from the S6 Active’s rugged look, it is IP67-certified, meaning it can be dunked in a meter of water for as much as 30 minutes and survive. The regular S6 does not have this certification, which means it is susceptible to water damage. That said, what would happen to the device when submerged in Pepsi for 3 minutes? Let’s find out.
Here’s the video:
Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S6 does survive the sticky liquid test. However, the tester failed to test if the the earpiece or microphone was damaged in any way.
To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S6 sports a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) (some units ship with cameras made by Samsung, while some units ship with cameras made by Sony), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,550 mAh battery. The S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighs in at 138 g. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top. It is clad in metal and glass for that more premium look and feel.
