Water damaged phone - is it saveable after a week?
I backed up my phone before I went camping -- no cell service where I was. Phone fell out of bag and into river water for about 15 seconds or so. Got back to camp about 15-20 minutes later and phone got really hot to the touch, too hot to hold for more than a few seconds. Had no way of opening it up, nor did I have rice to stick it in (as everyone says to do). Put it in corn meal stuff over night; it wasn't working so I thought what the heck why not? I never tried to plug it in until day after but no activity from phone. Got back home 3 days later and opened up phone (had already dried). Watched some youtube videos to see about repair. Still in denial (took many pics and vids on phone before I could back it up).
I am just wondering if phone is even repairable if it got really hot that first day, as I am not sure what that was.
Is this a good question?
