Did you buy through Samsung or a carrier. That'll determine how to do the warranty exchange

You should read the testing procedures to fully understand this.
A “dunk” is not part of the testing procedure.

Y’all do whatever you want but myself I would only consider the phone (and only when basically new) splash and maybe light drizzle rain resistance.
Consider that Samsung will NOT warranty a phone with water damage.

Exactly this. I don't care what the IP rating is. If they don't warranty water damage, it shouldn't be in water unless you can't help it.

Dropped mine in the lake this summer while wading with the dogs and shooting a video of them. It was probably 18" of water. Took a minute or so for the water to settle enough to find it. It was still recording when I picked it up. Never caused an issue with it at the time and it's still working fine.

But anyway, back to the OP, I agree with the others about the warranty. Sounds like it's time to use it, since you still have it. Sorry to hear about the issues.
