I don't think it is a wise idea for others do that. That guy probably just got lucky and there may be some long term effects if any water logging occurs. This phone is not certified to be water resistant.

But I was quite surprised nonetheless!

Both of the previous posters make good points. It's great that the phone appeared to work after being submerged, and it is indeed impressive if it was really able to remain active underwater for so long...However, it was obvious that water was slowly filling up the phone through the headphone jack, and it's likely there would be some long term damage due to possible corrosion and water being trapped. Also, there was no demonstration that the speakers, headphone jack, SD card, charging port, ect still worked.

Still, I'll take it for what it's worth. My S3 stopped working after 3 minutes of being outside in light drizzle, though it was later revived.

To me, that's like taking a wet $500 bill and throwing it into a fire, to see if it will burn.

If it burns, you're out 500 bucks. If it doesn't, you've gained NOTHING.

Stupid test.

from what i read somewhere, the htc one m8 is ipx3 rated. pretty much means that rain, splashes of water won't damage the phone. the whole submerged in water for 90 minutes deal, now thats a little extreme


EDIT: "The HTC One (M8) IPx3 rating means it's protected from water spray up to 60 degrees at 10l per minute, pressure of 80-100kN/m2 up to 5 mins" link here

HTC One m8

ROM: custom
Kernel: stock
Radio: 0.89.20.0321




HTC Touch Diamond > HTC HD7 > HTC Imagio > HTC DInc > HTC DInc2 > HTC Thunderbolt > HTC ReZound > HTC Droid DNA > HTC One (m7) > HTC One (m8)

And what if that was mineral oil instead of water? That would explain it working. After all we didn't actually see him fill the sink.
