The newest in a long line of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, the Galaxy Alpha still proudly features an easily removed rear cover and tool-less battery replacement.
Samsung's mothership, the Galaxy S5, was packed with glue and rubber gaskets, taking pains to keep your delicate pocket computer safe from a dip in a puddle.
The first evidence of waterproofing we found in the Galaxy S5 was a rubber o-ring embedded in its rear cover...
...which is clearly absent from the Alpha. So what happened here? Samsung's newest child clearly didn't inherit the much-touted IP67 standard.
