Things didn’t look too cozy when there was the face drop test, they got some major damage to the screens. Albeit all this, the two devices were still sound enough to be used for making calls.

iPhone 7 Waterproofing Test
Moving over to the iPhone 7 waterproofing test to check how deeper the iPhone 7 can be submerged in water. Well, we all know that the iPhone 7 is an IP67 certified device that suggests water and dust protection. According to this certificate, any devices could survive after being submerged in about 1 meter of water and approximately 3.28 feet for almost 30 minutes.
In the first step of the iPhone 7 drop test, these two devices were submerged in 5 feet water, but both of them came out with no damage. Then later the Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7 were dropped deeper in the water for up to 30 feet for 5 minutes, but this time, the phones emerged with first signs of damage. The Galaxy S7 reboots, and the iPhone 7’s new home button could be seen acting crazy.
Continuing with the iPhone 7 drop test, later the two devices were again submerged into the 35 feet of water for 5 minutes. Now we can see the Galaxy S7’s display doesn’t power on. The camera flash turns off continuously and we can see the blue LED indicator lighting up. While on the other hand, the iPhone 7 can be seen in an on state up as usual. The touch screen is seen working absolutely fine, though with visual damage.
