The new Samsung Galaxy might be water resistant, but it’s not waterproof. That, my friends, is an essential difference that would have cost you a device, if the company hadn’t thought ahead.
According to users, if water gets into the USB charging port, Samsung sends a notification “moisture detected in charging port”. Charging is immediately stopped and resumed once the system makes sure the spot is all dry. The fail-safe feature might be annoying or disappointing to some, but it’s the only way to avoid bigger problems like short circuits.
Some users said they had to wait from one hour to four until the charging resumed. One new customer even noticed that afterwards, fast charging wasn’t available anymore, just the normal type worked. That’s not great news, of course, but unless you’re planning to take it to the beach, pool or shower every day, it shouldn’t inconvenience you so much.
