Not sure sure about the s, but on the z1 the inside/back of the flaps are white. These turn red if they get wet. The indicators are not on the phone body but rather on the flaps themselves.

I'm curious now, I doubt what you've said is true as the flaps look the same as the ones off the Z in terms of material and composition, the Z flaps don't turn red, or mine would have looked like a car brake light.
If it's broke, use a hammer. If that fails, you're not using a big enough hammer.

Just going by what others here have said. Some have reported theirs turning red. Mine are white, and not about to test it

I've just confirmed it, dripped a couple of drops of water out of a syringe onto the flap over the USB and the flap over the Sim tray, Nothing changed.

I was careful enough to make sure the phone was at such an angle that any water could not possibly get into the handset. And my warranty is already toast before anyone says how daft I was

Nope, small white square on the top front edge of the SIM card slot. Totally above the slide out with the IMEI information
