Here is what to do when your phone dropped inside water

The world suddenly freezes  and your emotion  suddenly  changes when you see your dropped phone in water, you scream in terror, “I dropped my phone in the water!” Whether it’s a pool or a toilet, you just know nothing good will come out of the next few seconds. After all, that’s a high tech device that’s likely worth multiple hundred dollars, and chances are very high that it will be deemed unusable.
That is, unless you have one of those awesome waterproof smartphones, like the LG G6 or Samsung - Galaxy S8.

Don't do these when your phone dropped in water

it’s hard to react quickly when such a devastating event takes place, but you must snap out of it! The longer your device stays underwater, the lower its chances of survival are. You must dig in there and take that phone out of the water right away. Yes… even if it’s in the toilet!
water or swimming  pool

1. Once the phone is out of the water, make sure it’s off and stays that way. Even if it seems fine.

2.shut it off just in case

3. Don’t plug it

4. Don’t press any keys

5. Don’t shake or blow into the device

6.Do not apply any heat to the phone that may damage some ic

Here is what to do in less than 5 minutes

1.Disassemble the water damaged phone

2. you should remove everything that is user-removable. If you back cover is removable, take it off. Similarly, try to remove the battery (if you can), SIM card and SD card. Lay it all out in the paper towel.

3. if you are an experienced tech specialist of sorts and know the ins and outs of a phone, and don’t mind risking voiding your warranty, you can go ahead and take the whole phone apart too. It might help with drying up every single piece faster. Just be careful,

4. Try to dry the exterior with a paper towel

5. try to get rid of all the excess water found in the exterior of your phone. Use the paper towel to dry out every component

6. You could try a vacuum cleaner
There are areas the paper towel can’t access. And while we told you not to blow anything into the phone, we didn’t tell you not to suction the water out. In fact, a vacuum cleaner can suck off bits of water from the phone without too much risk. Just make sure the suctioning doesn’t make the phone move around excessively

7. Time to dry it out
So how do you dry your phone out? You could just leave the phone on top of the counter or inside a drawer, but some people like giving it a little help. The idea is to put it in an environment that will ease its drying process. A very common practice is to put the phone in a Ziplock  bag full of rice and let it rest there for about 2-3 days wow this  method is trusted  it actually worked for my Samsung s5
But why rice? Mostly because it is something readily available at most homes.
The idea is that rice is very good at absorbing humidity in the air, making the phone’s environment drier and hence helping to dry out the device.

But there are alternatives that could be better.

8.Among better options are silica gel packs, which are those little packets you often find in shoes or electronics boxes (and you can’t eat).

There are some simple troubleshooting we can do on our own when it to phones, computer and other electronics. Simple steps like this can solve the problem instead of panicking and looking for someone to do it for you. Great tips..
