Galaxy S7 thrown in washing machine, still works afterward

Samsung Galaxy S7 is probably more waterproof than you thought, washing machine test shows

One of the great things about the Internet is you can watch other people risk the well-being of their expensive devices instead of you doing it yourself. That's what's happening with the video below from YouTuber Max Lee, who throws the Galaxy S7 in an LG washing machine to test just how waterproof it really is. Turns out: very.

The phone is put through a full 45 minute cycle, so it's rigorous testing to be sure; a VRS Design Crystal Mixx case was used purely to prevent scratches.

Impressive, no?
