    Anyone drop theirs in water yet? I dropped mine in the toilet accidentally and it spent a good 5 seconds submerged. Moisture indicator came on but went away after 10 minutes.

    Gross. I'd destroy it. Awesome phone but not enough to go in then touch someone's hands and/or face, etc.

    My toilet is spotless.. not sure how some of you clean your homes or your bathrooms but I'm not worried. had it on top of the window ledge and accidentally hit it as I was trying to grab something else. At least my accident is proof that these devices were built well.

    Why do people take their phones in to the bathroom. Geezzzzzz. Pretty bad addiction if you can’t be without it for a few mins.

    You can soak it in bleach every 5 minutes and I'd still rather my phone not go in a toilet.

    Not sure how you clean your toilet and don't care.. I don't want my phone going into a place meant for me to do those things in lol.

    I dropped mine in the swimming pool, I was filming my baby brother learning to swim. It was completely submerged in 6ft of water for maybe 30 seconds, when I got it out I had a notification telling me to check my USB port because moisture was detected. it still worked perfectly, though I didn't try to charge it until it was completely dry. Now that it's completely dry, it's still perfect, no issues at all.

    Hah! But the Note 8 is so huge it would never go down. At some point, you'd have to suit up and go in after it, regardless.

    And if it did go down, I can guarantee that the Roto Rooter man would be paying you an expensive visit very soon, indeed. And he might have a difficult time getting his cutter to chew through the phone.

    My sister in law's kids tried to send a couple of teenage mutant ninja turtle action figures "home" a few times, and it was expensive.

    Just rinse the phone off well, and you're good to go, really. Maybe hit it with some hydrogen peroxide if you're really worried.

    I'd worry the most about the connectors. Having worked in electronics for 40 years, I have found that 95% or more of all electronic "failures" are nothing more than crappy connections. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    That's literally why I will never buy a used phone. I have zero clue what the other person did :P.

    I will never understand this. Why people use their phones near, or on, the toilet boggles my mind. I'm at the toilet to do one of three things - none of which will ever involve a phone. Put the damn thing away, do your business, and move on.

    If I'm working from home and on a conference call, or even just on a call talking to a friend, I'm not going to leave the call and ask someone to catch me up, or put someone on hold just to use the restroom.

    If I'm in the office, I'm not leaving my phone on my temporary desk to use the restroom, same thing if I'm at a public place.
    I don't think it's too difficult to understand.

    I'd rather my phone fell down the toilet than touch anything in a public place with my bare skin.
    Sick people touching stuff with their dirty hands everywhere.

    Yesterday I touched a handle on a bus and the next day I became ill.

    Guess most of you don't realize the average phone has more bacteria on it than the average toilet. Phones are filthy.

    Many studies have shown that the average home toilet is cleaner than the average home kitchen sink (when dishcloths, sponges, etc., are taken into account).
