    So here I was installing a wet screen protector with the phone turned off. After the installation I go to turn it on, nothing happens. I've installed wet screen protectors on all my phones without issues in the past, I'm guessing water managed to seep in the edge and short it? What's odd is I'm able to wirelessly charge the phone with the screen lit up and displaying the percent but it wont turn on if I hold the power button. Or if I attempt to to go into recovery mode. Ugh.

    Ouch. And I just installed a wet application SP on my friends edge yesterday. Hope it turns back on soon.

    So after about 6 hours, it managed to turn on out of the blue. (Minutes after posting this topic ironically.) Things are looking like they're in order so far. Battery seems fine, charging seems fine, buttons, sound, etc. That said, I'd be very weary of using water around this thing. In the future I'll be using dry installs for screen protectors. Thank goodness I have warranty on this device for peace of mind, but that was quite frightening.

    Edit - Looks like the front camera is quite foggy from condensation. Hoping this will go away within a day or two.

    There is a video I watched on YouTube where the guy soaked an S6 in a tub of water for an hour at least and it still worked. It rebooted a few times on it's own but in the end, it continued to work afterwards.

    I'm hoping that's the case. I'm getting a random camera failed message quite often, but it hasn't even been 24 hours yet. So I'm hoping all components are fine. In the long-term if I run into issues I have the insurance, but I don't want to use that quite yet.

    Since the phone is water resistant, and it wasn't immersed at all, you might be able to make a case for warranty exchange if there are still issues.

    I never put my phones near water or moisture in general. Just not a good mix.

    Exactly why I'm not a fan of wet screen protectors and besides the ones they sell up here are $40+. No thanks.

    Exactly. I refuse to use water to apply a screen protector. It's scary as hell.

    I had Verizon put on a Zag that they sell for the S6 edge that came with a front and back. It was a dry install. Well I recently got a new case for it, and when putting the edge in, I caught the bottom next to the home button so on the left of the home button it pulled off and won't re-stick.

    I picked up a Invisible shield hd clear for the Galaxy S6 edge at Best buy, and when I got home I noticed the box includes a application solution.

    I was planning on taking it up to Wireless Trendz , Wireless Trendz - Springfield's Only Mobile Device Superstore Since 2007! to have them install it, but now I wonder if I should do it, or go back to Verizon Wireless and buy another Zagg from them and just put the front on.

    Course if the guy at Wireless trendz doesn't overuse the solution, maybe I'll get lucky and not have any issues after application.

    But I'm thinking of going back to Verizon and taking this Invisible shield back to Best Buy. I just hope maybe this time when he puts the Zagg on, no air bubbles at all, even though the first one did go away after 2 days.

    I would do the dry install. Don't mess why the wet stuff. That's my 2 cents. Verizon should give you an exchange for the one you bought if it is within the 14 days. If not zagg will give you a replacement free. It's a lifetime warranty.

    I installed the invisible Shield onto my edge and hubby's. The solution is very minimal. It is applied directly to the screen protector...it's like an alcohol swab.

    So now a few days later figured I'd post an update...

    Looks like all the components are fine. The front facing camera eventually cleared up. My battery is still pretty suck-ish but it was suck-ish before this haha. For some odd reason the fast charging didn't work until 24 hours later but has since been working fine. So while I was frightened for this phones life, it made it in the end. :') Water resistant? Maybe. But I shouldn't of had this happen from a screen protector.

    I applied the skinomi full body protector wet style two weeks ago and had no issue. I placed a microfiber towel around the edge area where I was pushing the liquid out from for that reason so it would not run into the phone.

    the little bit of water you use installing a wet screen protector wont cause any harm what so ever..just make sure the phone is OFF when you install it

    I got a skinomi screen protector on Amazon for $11. Wet install by spraying solution on to screen protector. Worked great! Just don't use a lot of solution, just a little goes a long way!

    I guess you have not seen how easy the screen gets scratched.

    Are you serious? The screen still scratches very easy despite it being Gorilla Glass. Not from something like car keys, but from pieces of sand and dirt. My first (defective) phone, I decided to not use a screen protector and it gathered quite a few micro scratches in just a few days time. Along with the back glass.

    I have my S6 Edge in a clear view cover case.

    I had S1 for 2 years, S3 for 2 years and both of them have no scratches either.
    I guess it depends on how you handle the phone. I keep only a phone in one pocket and no car keys or wallet or other stuff.

    You must have put a lot of water on there bud.

    There are tests that show the galaxy s6 and s6 edge working after 10-15 minutes or longer under water. Maybe the way you sprayed it was weird. I've put on thousands of those wet protectors and never had an issue. Yes, thousands.

    Maybe your unit is not as properly sealed?

    S6/S6 Edge screen will scratch easily no matter how u handle it. Problem is not GG4 display, instead the layer on top of GG4 is bad applied and causing scracthes.

    I would put your phone in a ziplock bag of uncooked white rice overnight. The rice will draw out whatever moisture is left inside the phone and should get rid of the condensation on the camera.

    Good luck.
