    Almost certainly. The phone is not meant to be in the sea, ever, under any circumstances. It is tested to be able to withstand still, room temperature tap water while the device is powered off and to be completely dried off prior to using the device. Any chemicals (such as saltwater) and/or current, motion, etc. would introduce circumstances not intended to be warrantied.

    Device has no problem getting wet while powered on, but salt water and chemicals can no doubt cause an issue.

    Ok I'm not saying that having it on causes damage, because I don't know if it does or not. I'm describing the test conditions. When they do the test they either power it off or leave it on but in sleep mode, then submerge it and they don't attempt to use it until it has been brought out and dried off.

    Any time a person says that they were swimming with it though, that means that they and the water were both in motion - and that's something that is not covered in any way by the testing for water resistance IPX8.

    This is on website regarding saltwater:

    "Do not expose the device to salt water or ionized water. If your device is exposed to salt water, wash the device with fresh water, and then dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Otherwise, when it dries, salt may accumulate and block the primary microphone, earpiece, and external speaker."
