I had thought it was ok because I got it out of the water pretty fast and it still seemed to be working.. set it up on something warm to try to make sure it would dry out but, things only went downhill after that. After spending 36 hours in a bag of rice.. it no longer had any screen-touch sensitivity so, I had to get into programming mode to even shut it off.
I've enjoyed this phone and it may be a while before I can wrangle another that has the front-facing stereo speakers and good sound again. Temporarily, I've just gone ahead and ordered a Galaxy S7, which I think is going to be --oh well, it'll be ok for now. But, I sure wish that the Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale on the new Axon 10 would have been better. I just could not justify spending that much on a phone. I'd done great at getting the Axon 7 mini for right at 200 by being an early adopter (I guess).. now, even those are going for over 300.
Thought I'd drop one last note though, wishing everyone here in the community well and hoping that everyone has a great 2020.!! Can't believe we're rolling into 2020. *chuckling
Anyhow, All my best.! See ya 'round the web. -Myr
