It depends. There are water indication stickers placed inside the phone that change color when they come into contact with water. If the water never reached the indicators, then they have no proof. BUT the indicators are always put in places where water is most likely to go first, so even if you had your phone out of the water quick enough and dried it off, it still probably wouldn't have made a difference. I say do the right thing. Instead of trying to commit fraud, just buy a new phone.

Just leave it in a bag of rice. It'll attract a Chinese man. And they're very good with electronics

The warranty says it doesn't cover psychical damage. If I have to pay for phone again, I'm gonna get Sony Waterproof phone, no point in wasting money on something inferior. This is a picture of the background, it's meant to be one colour

My friend put his iphone in the fridge and got replacements.

I don't see how that wallpaper could ever have been the same color. Are you saying the black area should have been some sort of blue?

Either way you're not going to see it in a screenshot. I once had quite a long conversation about a guy who thought dead pixels would appear in his screenshots. He then started calling android ridiculous because it didn't have that feature.

This guy is obviously trolling, nobody could be stupid enough to post a screenshot thinking it would show physical damage. Just report the thread and don't feed into it anymore.

edit: This thread feels vaguely familiar to me. Pretty sure someone tried to troll here a while back with the exact same scenario, posting screenshot and all.

It's all meant to be blue.

If your phone actually looks like it does in the screenshot, the phone is fine. Thats how the wallpaper looks. I really can't take you seriously right now.

@_MetalHead_ - I remember that. I think that was the thread that I was arguing about the screenshot too.

It is It is going to a new state, and this state is called "closed"

As already said, yes, they can prove you dropped it in water, and no, you will most likely not get a (free) replacement. That's all that can be said about it.
And as already mentioned, putting it into rice is always the best bet with wet electronics
