What is color of water damage indicator on S4?


Friday 21st of June 2013 / androidforums.com
Is the water damage indicator on the Verizon S4 supposed to be all white, or is it white with pink squiggly lines? We have one phone that I'm virtually positive hasn't been exposed to water that has squiggly pink lines on a white sticker in the battery compartment.

AT&T to offer one-time exchange for water damaged Galaxy S4 Active


Tuesday 06th of August 2013 / androidauthority.com
According to Murphy’s law, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong” – and how!What happens if you are a Galaxy S4 Active owner and things go wrong when exposing your little darling to water? Unfortunately, conventional warranties don’t cover water damage. The good news is that AT&T and Samsung may soon be offering an exchange program for those that run into water-related trouble, at least if an unnamed tipster reporting to PhoneArena proves correct.In order to give their customers extra piece of mind, AT&T looks to be teaming up with Samsung to replace damaged devices with new Galaxy S4 Active handsets. The only catch is that this is a one time deal – after that, you’re on your own. The source claims that the details of this arrangement come from an internal menu over at AT&T, though no word on when the plan will go into effect.So why are AT&T and Samsung offering the program so late into the game, when the phone has already been on sale for a while? It’s hard to say for sure, though high-profile reports of water damage could certainl

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active First Teardown & Water Damage Report (W/Pics)


Wednesday 07th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, here is my story about my experience with the new Galaxy S4 Active. I am an experienced gadget addict, diver and snowboard guy who deal with things and procedures carefully. I know how serious water can do damage to electronics and take every steps to prevent accidents. So the Galaxy S4 Active attracted my attention because of its waterproof capabilities (as in the advertisments) and the ability to change batteries seem to suit my needs. I decided to take the new phone for a spin. Test 1 - Shower Wet Hands Test (No direct spraying & submersions at all)Made sure everything is sealed properly and pressed below the flash, inspected every seal. Then I took it to shower and grabbed it with wet hands briefly to test the water resistant ability. After an hour or so, I realized there are strange spikes on the top left part of the screen. They did not look like water damage and the spikes persists in recovery mode as well so it is not software issue. The spikes eventually went away slowly after ~5 hours. This got me very worried. Test 2 - Submersion Test (Submersion in a tray with 1

Water damage indicator


Wednesday 08th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi all, I purchased a supposedly brand new S4 (no contract) in December from my regular Kiosk in a mall (purchased over 20 devices from them never had problems) today I had to change my sim card and I noticed the sticker under the battery was missing like it was never there at all. When I first got the phone the 4 pieces of plastic that surrounds it 1 of them was missing but I didn't bother about it too much, but the absence of the water damage indicator bothers me because the phone never fell never got wet or had any damage well at least with me. It is made in Korea, any advice as to what I should do? Is it common for some devices not to have the water damage indicator? On the box next to GT-I9500 has UD does it mean anything in particular? Is it refurbished? TIA

Galaxy S4 suffered water damage, but possible to save maybe.


Monday 23rd of June 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I just need reassurance so I am asking here for it, because it seems it may be savable. Basically, I was using my GS4 at a friends house, and I lost grip and it fell in his hot tub. It wasn't in for more than ten second. I have the otterbox defender case on it without that screen thing, and when I pulled it out of the water it was on and still operating, but I didn't take chances. I took off the case, removed the battery, and being I wasn't home, I let it sit out in the weather for a bit. Wasn't hot out so no worries of heat damage. About 4 hours later I tried turning it on. It turned on and went through all the normal stuff, but it started having issues so I turned it off. I got home and let it sit in rice for 24 hours. After 24 hours, I put it together and turned it on. The phone itself was fine it seemed. Speakers played the sound, it did the little vibrate when it boots, and the LCD itself seemed to work fine. However, the screen seemed pretty water logged, and touch sensitivity was unresponsive. The only damage seemed to be on the more external screen, or touch screen I guess y

water damage on galaxy


Wednesday 16th of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello world My name is Liam and Im 15. While fishing a few days ago I thought it would be a fantastic idea to bring my Galaxy S4 I have had for a little over a year with me. I set it on the dock and next thing I knew it had fallen in I did jump in and get the phone after about 5 minutes of freaking out. Lucky I have the phone and It has little water damage. After I left the phone in a bag of rice for about 12 hours i decided to test it out. I plugged it in and it light up! It had given me the charging symbol and everything! I was so glad I wouldn't have to get it replaced BUT one problem. Even though it charges and has the red charging light glowing I can not power the phone. I press and hold the power button and nothing! I would like to know what to do and i have a few options. 1 start ALL over and buy a new galaxy ( the option im leading towards this option)2. see if there is a way to start the phone (my main reason for posting this) or option 3 see if the AT&T store will fix the same phone WITHOUT taking all my money. Tell me what you think THANK YOU!!
