FreedomsKriegSooooo the S8 is also able quick charge at 4.0 meaning exactly What ? It will not really....or it is somehow being regulated at a Slower charging rate of 2.0.......BOGUS....Because Phones that Cost less charge much faster as a fact. Samsung must be afraid of more fire in their phones. That is why the charging rate is kept slow .But what do I know........ just saying
James ShockleyThe quickcharge 4.0 is the version of qualcomm's quick charge that the s8 uses not the charging rate. The charging rate is 9 volt 1.67 amp
TYESo is the phone waterproof or not?
Forgottenrightsyes, took it white water rafting and went under 3 times swimming with my phone unprotected and on....just don't try and charge it until its 100% dry or ir breaks it. I also suggest not trying to test it, I turned it off when I was swimming aware it was a 900$ phone at that point.
