So I spilled water on my wife's LGOGpro and now there are spots all in the LCD panel. Strangely enough, everything works fine. Here is a screen shot. Will this go away or is it screwed? TIA

You trollin? Lol. Physical damage will not show in a screenshot. Water damage is no joke. I wouldn't gamble it. Take it to a repair shop and have it cleaned, it's only $35 or so.

This phone has one amazing repair feature, the screens not stuck to the digitizer. If you dare, get a heat gun, and warm around the screen and use a guitar pic or a open tool, and pull the digitizer off and clean it. Make sure that you have it 100% clean before you put it back, and you should be good to go.

You can also try just warming it up with a hair dryer and seeing if the water will dry, though that may leave spots. I would definitely suggest popping the screen off. If you are careful(I've done this) you can open it without ripping the phone apart. However, I would not recommend that unless you have done it before. If you do, the digitizer cable is on the top Left. Lift only upwards from the bottom, and only slightly, to not damage it.
