    I am looking for information from forum users who have had there S7 or S8 device become damaged from water. I would like to know the details of how exactly the phone is damaged, along with how the phone interacted with water that caused the damage.

    Water with impurities gets into the device (through many places - an open port, a twisted seal, etc.), causing shorts and corroding copper. The phone will stop performing some functions (which order things fail in depends on where the water got in), until it's unusable.

    (Remember, the phones are water resistant, not waterproof, so if you splash the water when putting the phone in it, or take the phone into the shower or go swimming with it, water is going to get in. Water resistance is normally meant to protect the phone against small spills or rain, not misuse.)
