Not-So-Waterproof Samsung Phones
Do you or did you own a Samsung S10e, S10, S10 Plus, S9, S9 Plus, S8, S8 Plus, S7, S7 Edge, Note 9, Note 8, Note 7, A8, A7, and A5, manufactured between 2016 and 2019? Was it advertised as “waterproof”—featuring advertisements where people jumped in pools or oceans with their Samsung phones? Did these advertisements not hold water (pardon the pun)? Don’t worry—you’re not alone!
Thousands of other Samsung phone owners across the country have been experiencing the same problems. Indeed, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recently filed a lawsuit against Samsung, and the ACCC Chairman Rod Sims stated that, “Samsung’s advertisements falsely and misleadingly represented Galaxy phones would be suitable for use in, or for exposure to, all types of water … when this is not the case.”
