    I have resently dropped my samsung s6 is some water, and quickly put it in to a bag of rice. The display works and turns on, but I try to charge the phone, it says that it is over heating and cannot charge.

    Do I need to replace my phone, or battery?
    If not is there something I can do?

    Battery isn't swappable, unless you really, really know how to.
    I'd say replace it, since the GS6 isn't water resistant.

    Same here. Mine powers on OK but after a few minutes it won't start any apps tho' I can still make and receive calls. I get msgs that the battery temperature is too high, and it won't charge. Is it just the battery that's the problem here or the internals of the phone too? Is a new battery likely to resolve the problem?

    Welcome.

    Alas, if the phone got wet, the outlook is not good:

    Well, well. The phone suddenly didn't reject charging last night so I left it plugged in overnight and awoke to find the battery at 100%. No more overheating messages, all apps running as normal. Have I got away with it?
