    Welcome to Android Central! Pretty much all water damage stickers will turn a solid color when exposed to water. The most common colors are pink and blue. If it's solid black, I would guess that means exposure. Is the phone working ok?

    I sent u a picture in ur pms that sticker on mine is white on mine. I think maybe water got in when I opened it to check I hope anyways in the camera lens there's mist around the lens but not in the centre it's not water just a wee bit of fog but yeah phones perfect just scared of water damage as I only got it yesterday and I don't want it to break on my birthday

    Even if it seems ok now, moisture inside the phone can start some slow damage. Follow the advice in this guide, if you can: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...e-got-wet.html

    Remember, the S5 is water resistant, not waterproof. How resistant depends on water pressure. So laying it down gently and slowly in 3 feet of water does a lot less damage (as far as water getting past the seals) than dropping it into 6 inches of water.
