How to check Water Damage on Samsung Galaxy S6

We must admit from the start that the weather resistance is one of the best features that your Galaxy S6 could have. When it comes to Samsung’s previous flagship – the Galaxy S5 model, we all remember that the Korean company described it as being “resistant to sweat, rain, liquids, sand and dust, so your phone is protected for any activity and situation”. We all know that the technical designation was actually IP67 Certification which means that water damage was not possible in liquid immersion up to 1 meter, so some people were dissapointed.

Sadly, things are even more dissapointing this time and we cannot say the very same thing about Samsung Galaxy S6. Unlike its predecessor, this new model is not waterproof, which means that even a small amount of water contact might cause a technical defect of the smartphone. Such accidents take place all the time, we must admit that, so don’t hesitate to check the water damage on your device.

If your Samsung Galaxy S6 has fallen in the bathtub, if you are the one who forgotten to take it out of the pocket and jumped in the pool (and be sure of the fact that the examples can continue), don’t hesitate to test and see if all functions of your Samsung Galaxy S6 are still working properly even after such accidents. Depending on how long the Samsung Galaxy S6 was in the water, we might be talking about a completely different impact on the hardware.

However, before worrying for nothing, you know what you have to do. Simply follow this step by step guide from below and maybe you’ll be lucky:

    Where is the indicator? Is it the silverish-white band on the SIM tray with numbers on it, behind the SIM logo? Or is it somewhere on the phone itself?

    my phone (galaxy s6) got a little wet and I put it in rice, for a day. When i tried to turn it on the screen wouldn’t show but I see blinking lights and I can hear the notifications. I tried the water damage trick, i don’t have one.

    :( My Samsung S6 did not fair well. Dropped from pocket into toilet and got pulled right out. Immediately stuck it in rice for 36hrs, but indicator was definitely pink. Is currently being repaired and it fried the LCD. Tech says that’s what usually happens.
