does the screen work with wet finger like Samsung phone? Now it gained water resistance.
We won't know till next Friday.....
I think this is the only "feature" that I am most interested... Now debating if I should even pre-order tomorrow.
This would be interesting. Many atimes ive wanted to call someone in the rain, but its very annoying.
No, or Apple surely would have touted it as a "courageous major feature".
Water-resistant means if you drop it in a toilet you won't go running back to Apple crying and demanding a replacement.
How about Apple Watch Series 2? Now swimming proof. Able to use it underwater or with wet fingers?
doubtful. I have the AW1 and it is very much waterproof and does not work with wet fingers.
I really doubt they've improved the capacitance screens on either device to work in 'shorting conditions' which is what damp/rainy conditions are. I'd love that, also....
IPXX -> IP67 is 'does dust or water break it at certain levels?' We need a new rating for working in those conditions...
You can interact with the S7 screen while under water or just with a moist finger? I had one and recall it getting all wonky when I tried to use it when it or my finger was wet.
There is NO evidence of any changes from past models. Let's shoot this down now. The demos on YouTube of the phone working underwater may last for hours, not minutes, but you won't be able to *do* anything with it, any more than before.
MAYBE someone can rig up a case with something that transfers input to the screen? Similar to the cold weather gloves that substitute for your fingers' capacitance... That's another whole idea.
The bare screen itself won't react to your bare fingers when wet anymore than it did on past models.
Considering nobody has tested that and the phone is actually not out until next Friday - your guess is as good as ours. I wonder if anyone thinks before asking questions like this. Like, why do you think anyone here would know this on a brand new phone announced less than 24 hours ago.
In the product video shows a woman using it in the rain. Go on apples site and around 1.40 you will see this.
Think about it, people attended the conference yesterday and have already tried out the phone - someone may have also tried the wet finger operation with a glass of water already and can answer this.
What about using the phone with wet hands after you washed them with soap
S7 designed to work in hot dry environment
What about wet hands will the iPhone 7 be ok
Seems much more wet finger friendly than with previous models. I could never unlock my 6 with even remotely moist fingers, but on the 7 it unlocks instantly.
