its a pixel 3 but i guess when i got the charging port fixed the shop didn't seal the waterproofing properly and when it got dunked the screen went all crazy

any ways my phone is now in a bag of rice and ive crossed my fingers that it works again, or at least get my photos off of it somehow

otherwise pixel 4 doesnt come out until october i think??? luckily ive got my backup LG G5 but its kinda grody

Aren't the Pixel phones notoriously bad with water resistance? Maybe that was just the first gen. Sorry about your phone, OP. Maybe try a different brand.

A horizontal chunk of the bottom part of my Galaxy s8 phone screen randomly flashes now and Blue Train says that sounds like a hardware problem.

This sucks because it was 800 bucks and I adore it. Fingers crossed it doesn't brick.

Thatís why I keep insurance for 2 years, and if it breaks after that, I upgrade. Now Iíve been stuck on this ancient iPhone X for so long and probably will be until the iPhone Z Max Pro or whatever because I got a good case and donít have butterfingers.

Iíll be real, whenever they change the charging port, Iíll upgrade and chuck this thing in a shoebox with the rest of my old iPhones and iPods.

Does putting things in a bag of rice actually do anything except make your rice dirty? Rice is hardly known for absorbing water out of the air. It's better to put it in a warm spot near your hot water cylinder.

Unless it was repaired by a manufacturer's approved company then water proofing isn't guaranteed or even restored and, well, now you've discovered what happens.

I have a picture somewhere of me squeezing water out of my Sony Xperia after it got damaged and I took it swimming. Still worked afterwards, of course, because Sony Xperia phones are awesome.

This isn't completely accurate as Apple's the only company to get a valid reliability score for this setting. Android manufacturers urge using the popcorn setting for their devices

that sucks condolences but it's probably toast.

last august we were in hawaii/oahu and i went outside our hotel to swim in the ko'olina lagoon and i forgot i had my iphone 6s zipped in my swimshorts pocket and just walked into the lagoon, and swam back and started looking for my phone in a bag and welp. i tried to salvage it but it was done for. i think i was really drunk. I loving loved that phone and home button is the best.

was worth it tho, water was hella nice
