Thumbs up
If there are bubbles coming out, then there's water going in. The thing that really worries me is that they are coming from the charger connection. Where that water went, god only knows lol.

I would say no for a few reasons:

1: The SIM card tray and the MicroSD card tray do not appear to have any seals, and I think water can get in via the eject hole.
2: As above, the earphone jack isn't sealed, nor is the USB plug.
3: The iFixit teardown doesn't show any rubber seals or O-rings. It does show very well-fitting construction with glue used... but I don't think anything there is watertight so a dunking will get water inside the device.
