Is the Galaxy S7 water resistant?

Today on Tech With Brett I am talking about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and what it means that it is water resistant.

In technical terms the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge is IP68 certified. The IP (Ingress Protection) scale defines what each of the digits mean and how protected the Galaxy S7 is. The first digit deals with how protected the device is from dust and the second digit is its ability to withstand water. See chart below for the definition of each digit.

This then means that the Galaxy S7 is dust proof and though the chart does not define much about the 8, but it means that it can be immersed in water 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. If that is not convincing enough also check out the S7's manual and its guidelines for using the device in water.

I have placed my S7 in water many times and it still works flawless. The only temporary issue you may have is water gets stuck in the speaker and it will sound muffled until it dries out completely. There has been absolutely no long term damage.

If you have the S7 or S7 edge and have not made the plunge, I hope this has given you the confidence to try it out!

How to use your phone to control the Samsung Galaxy View tablet

The Galaxy View tablet is the biggest tablet from Samsung clocking in a 18.4". It is meant to be a portable screen to be used around your living space. The tablet comes with a built in stand, so you are not always going to be sitting directly in front of it. 

Samsung has released the Galaxy View Remote app that allows you to control the screen from across the room. Simply download the Galaxy View Remote app from the Play Store to get started.

Once you have opened the app on your Samsung phone turn on the Bluetooth settings on your Galaxy View. This will allow the View to show up on your phone. You select the device and type in the pin code and you are ready to go. 

The app allows you to use your phone like a mouse, control the volume, home button, recent apps button, and much more. Check out the video above to see this awesome app in action.
