    Default Dropped S5 in the Bath Tub :(

    On most other Android forums, people would start giving me advice about how I should put my phone in rice, remove the battery, etc. On this forum, nobody has any reason to care because nothing happens when this phone makes it's way to the bottom of your kids bubble bath. One of my favorite new features!

    I'd still put it in rice or those packet things. You know, just to please those who don't have water resistance.

    Save the rice. Could be a great Samsung slogan

    I think we need a link in the "sticky" section for an Android Intervention Help Line. Folks, you'll still be able to function, I promise, if you don't take your phones to the bathroom Enjoy being disconnected for awhile

    But... What will I do for music while I take a shower? The phone is water resistant so I want it in there!

    Some people report moisture on the inside of the camera aperture after a dunk in the wet stuff.

    This may simply be condensation like when an item goes between areas of different temperatures but best be mindfull of it

    Leave it just outside of the shower. No need to bring it in except the volume wont be as loud.

    That's normal behavior. The speaker should be noticeably worse when it is wet. As long as it goes back to normal afterwards it's fine.

    Must have been no wireless card installed for charging glad it was not damaged

    Looking to raise the volume of the phone in the bathroom putting it in a cup might help
