My Galaxy S5 isn’t as water resistant as I thought Ever since it was announced people have been asking- how waterproof is the Galaxy S5? As seen in our full review, its weather resistance is one of its best new features. Or at least it’s supposed to be. This morning I woke up to find my front and rear camera had some odd bubbles forming all over each lens. Although it was being 'tested' for review, but it does show the 'quality' (or lack of it) when it comes to Sammy's water proofing.
