    The S5 is water resistant. You shouldn't be having those problems. And 36 days for a replacement? That is ridiculous.

    Please proof read it is hard to understand.

    If you get water on the screen, sometimes your phone think you want to pen something hard to explain.

    Like when I put my s5 under water with the screen turned on and unlocked, usually opens a couple things

    Sad to hear, contact Samsung and try and get a replacement because as @neonworm said, you shouldn't be having these problems.

    Let me make sure I understand. When you get drops of water on the screen, it doesn't work properly? It's my understanding that that's normal. Touchscreens don't respond normally when they're wet, even on the water-resistant S5. As long as it starts working again when it dries off, there's nothing wrong with your phone.

    Your phone is normal from what I can understand.

    I work outside on heavy equipment on a spray truck.

    My hands get wet from the spray gun because it leaks while in use.
    If my fingers are wet and I try to use the phone, it does crazy things like opening up two apps at once.

    As soon as I get the phone and my hands dry again, the phone is back to normal.

    I guess the phone was always "normal", the wet skin gives a "much larger" area of contact and it responds like if you touched two apps at the same time with two fingers.

    I think your phone is okay.

    Drops of water will make your screen act up. Solution: wipe it off.
