    Hello everyone. A few days ago I put my Samsung Galaxy S5 in the water. Soon after the accelerometer, gyroscope, lights sensor, proximity sensor, and magnetic sensor have stopped working. I put it in rice and have checked 1-2 times a day for the past 2 days to see if the sensors start working. The sensors haven't been working for the past 2 1/2 days! The white stickers on the Galaxy S5 show no indication of water damage. So my question is: Why would my Samsung Galaxy S5's sensors stop working if it's water resistant? I put it a sink that had about only 10 inches of water in it for about 20 seconds!!! The Galaxy S5 is supposed to be water resistant up to a meter and for 30 minutes! In this link it says something about sensor malfunctions: GALAXY S5 - Water and Dust Resistance

    Any help would be appreciated guys.

    Btw this has happened to me once but I was able to get the sensors to work again. This is my second time and I can't get the sensors to work.
