Default post water damage fun!

So I decided to test the phone's water resistant capabilities. I video recorded a front flip off the diving board..(Yes I was intoxicated). The video ended about a second after I hit the water but the phone remained on for about five minutes. This incident happened on Sunday by the way and I'm writing this post on the same phone, anyways it shut off for five hours then managed to get it running for the rest of the night until the battery died. The next day it wouldn't charge or do anything. I left it off, unplugged until today and now I have full working capability with everything, but the screen is a little crazy. Already made an insurance claim to replace, before you hate I was prepared to pay for the experiment so here's a screenshot. Enjoy! And don't replicate...cheers

Not interesting at all lol...You damaged the hardware, a screenshot isn't going to show that.

I'm going to go ahead and assume that you're still a bit intoxicated. [emoji87]
