The Samsung Galaxy S5 is water resistant which is different from water proof. If your Galaxy S5 falls into a swimming pool or into a bucket of water, it will definitely be water damaged, but in the case of a sudden downpour or toilet drop accidentally, there are certain steps which may help your device from functioning normally.
How To Solve Samsung Galaxy S5 – Water Damage
- DO NOT TURN YOUR PHONE ON. Open the phone and dry it up with a towel or tissue or keep it under a high power light bulb, then put it into a bowl of rice, or a container filled with dry tea leaves, or a bag of silica crystals and keep it there for 24 hours.
- After that, put your battery back into the phone and turn it on. The phone should function normally.
- If the above solution does not help, your Galaxy S5 probably is water damaged and needs to be taken to a repair shop.
Remember: Do note put your phone into Salty Water or Acid Solution intentionally as the Galaxy S5 is not water proof.
