Performing a diving test on how water resistant "iPhone 7" is strong in water, surprising waterproof performance turned out
A new type of "IPhone 7/7 Plus"Splashproof performance / water resistance performance" is newly installed, and in GIGAZINE editorial departmentUsing iPhone 7 in the bathI tried, but if it is about this waterproof test iPhone 7 gets cleared lightly. In order to investigate the level of waterproof performance of such iPhone 7, YouTuber who is reviewing Apple productsEverything AppleProIs doing a thorough dive test.
IPhone 7 vs S7 DEEP Water Test! How Deep Before It Dies? - YouTube
It is Everything ApplePro who carries out the diving test, and iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are subject to the test. Galaxy S7 was prepared for comparison.
The stage is a river like this.
The waterproof / dustproof performance of iPhone 7 is "IP 67", the figure "6 (next number of IP)" shows the dustproof performance and "7 (next next digit of IP)" shows the waterproof performance. The larger these numbers are, the better they are, the dust grade ranges from 0 to 6, and the waterproof grade ranges from 0 to 8. The Galaxy S7 that carries out diving test under the same condition for comparison is "IP68".
From the standards point of view, Galaxy S7 is higher on waterproof performance. In addition, although Galaxy S7 got wet in the rain and the screen was switching without permission, the iPhone 7 does not seem to have any such behavior.
So, we will do the test immediately. At the time of testing put the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S 7 in a container with a hole like the following ... ...
Close the lid so that the terminal does not flow out from the container ...
I will sink in the river as it is.
Since the hole is empty in the container, it can be confirmed firmly that the air is exhausted exhaustively.
First we will sink for 5 minutes at 5 feet (about 1.5 meters). At the moment when it is withdrawn, a large amount of water flows from the container with a dough.
I took out the terminal and both of them are working properly.
There is no trace of immersion in the rear camera.
Of course, the home button is also working firmly, so it seems that there will be no problems with the terminal at the depth of 1.5 meters to the depth of 5 minutes.
Continue to sink to a depth of 10 feet (about 3 meters).
Sinking vigorously ......
Collect again after 5 minutes.
The iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are scattered even at a depth of about 3 meters.
Next we will experiment at 15 feet (about 4.5 meters). Everything ApproPro says, "I think that perhaps 15 ft is the limit, I would like to explain one after the other, but some people point out that the water pressure is different from the actual because it is in a container It is the same hydraulic pressure as in the case where it is sunk in a barrel because it has many holes in the container. "
Both terminals that do not cause any change at this depth.
Submerge the terminal to 20 feet (about 6 meters) ......
I will withdraw after 5 minutes.
It seems that water is accumulated in the Lightning terminal on the bottom of the terminal, but there is no problem in the operation at all.
Losing to iPhone 7 and Galaxy S 7 is working properly. Even though both terminals are submerged in the water for 20 minutes in total, there is no abnormality in the terminal, and Everything ApplePro says "It's going to be what the heck is that?"
It seems that the test will continue until one of the terminals fails and the next will submerge 30 feet (about 9 meters) at a stretch.
After waiting for 5 minutes at a depth of about 9 meters and then withdrawing the container ......
The Galaxy S7 was restarting.
However, there seems to be no problem on the terminal itself.
In contrast to iPhone 7, Siri starts and says "There is a problem with the connection, please try again".
Galaxy S7 restarted, iPhone 7 was running Siri, but both devices are operating normally. Judging from the screen of Siri, it seems that he was out of the service area of the radio, apparently it will work without problems on both of the two, or even unexpected deployment.
At the end I challenge from 35 feet to 40 feet (about 11 meters to about 12 meters) which is about to reach the bottom of the river.
Changes will occur at last here. Lastly, the Galaxy S 7 that endured the dive test until the end has stopped running.
However, the camera is not inundated.
Siri started again on iPhone 7 and it says "There is a problem with the connection, please try again", but it works without problems.
Although I try to restart Galaxy S7 somehow, it does not work at all.
In contrast to iPhone 7, it works without problems at all at the bottom of the screen (under the message application) although it was seen after flooding.
Although I challenge a lot afterwards, I can not start Galaxy S7. However, the flash of Galaxy S7 is flashing for a moment.
Also, it seems that Galaxy S 7 which does not start has a fever.
The iPhone 7 person can not see the flooding of the camera ... ...
Bleeding can be seen in the lower part of the display.
In waterproof grade, Galaxy S7 is supposed to have higher waterproof performance, but when actually tested, iPhone 7 showed better waterproofness.
