Title:

Phone dropped in sea water

Text:

I have a Galaxy A5 (2016), previously I had some other phones dropped into seawater,

I just used isopropyl alcohol, but now I ran out of it, so I was wondering if i could just simply submerge it in distilled water without disassembling the whole phone as I don't have access to a heat gun.
