Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini To Be Waterproof ?
The official Samsung website suggests several warranty related info for the Galaxy S5 Mini. According to the site, the warranty is excluded if the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is submerged in water for 30 minutes or more.
Moreover, the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Mini and the Galaxy S4 Active have similar water-proof features with mention of warranty exclusion for water damage.
