Almost a week after the unveiling of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the industry’s responses towards the duo have been lukewarm. Users liked the design and the set of specs that the two devices have arrived with, but the facts that both devices have sealed battery and none comes with a MicroSD card slot, have left them disappointed.
There’s another reason for them to feel disappointed; neither of S6 and S6 Edge comes with waterproofing, which means if you accidentally drop your S6 or S6 Edge into the water, then the phone may stop working.
The good news, however, is there are Waterproof cases for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge from LifeProof. The premium Smartphone case manufacturing company have promised users that dust proof, snow proof and shock absorbent cases for Galaxy S6 are currently in the pipeline.

LifeProof has made a name in the case manufacturing industry by keeping the standard high for its the iPhone and Android cases that it has manufactured. The LifeProof nuud iPhone 6 case, for example, protects the screen by having it sealed and doesn’t need a screen protector.
The case is visually enticing too; it is obtrusive to the curved design of iPhone 6, but increases the phone’s look through the combination of the raised edges and a built-in screen protector, which keeps the screen scratch-free. The case is easy to wield too.
As mentioned above, LifeProof didn’t keep the Android users hungry, rather fed them off with stunning cases for Galaxy S5, S4 and S3. Did Android users appreciate that? Yes, they did. The Galaxy S5, for example, is a water-resistant device with all its ports covered. Users can take the device 3 feet deep into the water and keep there for 30 long minutes. When coupled with the LifeProof case, the level of protection increases; you can keep S5 in LifeProof case six feet into the water for almost an hour.

Is the LifeProof case a must buy for everyone, who has a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge? Well, Smartphone users have recently become highly aware of the importance of water and dust proofing. They meticulously read the descriptions of handheld devices and check if the device is IP65 or IP67 rated.
So from a consumer’s point of view, it’s essential that the device he’s going to choose has all the latest facilities and renders best protection from dust, water and scratches.
It makes little sense why Samsung has described Galaxy S6 and S6 edge as revolution because none of the devices is waterproof. However, if the tweet from Samsung Mobile UK is taken in stride, then the word “revolution” does make sense because when Samsung used the word, it meant revolution in terms of industrial design.
Some sources claimed LifeProof will make cases in the future that will offer fingerprint reading and have the screen wide open yet prevent the water from getting in the screen. We’re not sure when the case will arrive, but we’re in no hurry and can definitely wait for the case to hit the stores.
