Seal broken? Is theyre a way to re seal it?

Hey so I had my phone fixed by a shop last week. They used a very poor adhesive to Seal the back on from where I dropped it and shattered the back glass . Is they're anyway to seal this phone back so that it may be used in water? Being that the phone has a water pressure level and a time the phone is able to withstand water ? Used it before in the water and I didn't have a problem. I was going to try this other place called I fix it near me. THey said the seal would be stronger but theyre no guarantee that the phone can go back and water without a case protecting i

Nobody can guarantee waterproofness of a phone after repairing it. Your best bet is to use the original back cover adhesive.

Pretty sure Samsung has that hardware test hidden menu which you can access from typing the secret dial codes that allows you to test the air pressure inside the phone for waterproofness. If the air pressure changes when applying pressure at back or front of screen then it's waterproof. If it doesn't change then it's not.

There's a company on ebay (although they are located in the united kingdom) that sell only OEM Samsung service parts, whom I buy all my adhesives from. There name is; fonejoy and there ebay number is 134821. I'm having a guess that you have a S7 or S7 Edge so I have included the part numbers.

Regardless of if you use the original adhesive you still need that adhesive to adhere to the frame like it would coming out of the factory. Bearing in mind the frame was brand new and possibly pressed down with some sort of machine.

I'm sure Sony don't guarantee the device will be waterproof after repairing it themselves.

Yeah, not sure Sony would guarantee a Samsung device.

Yes... great observation. Clearly using sony as an example as they publicly offer a repair service to more waterproof devices then anybody else
