Check Water Damage

There is a really simple way in order to identify whether your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge has been a bit damaged via liquid, which is most probably water. Each and every OEM these days ships its Android phones and tablet along with such identification measures pre-installed, and the S6 and S6 Edge are no exception as well. In this article, we are going to talk about How to Check Water Damage on Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Let’s begin!

In order to check if the water damage, just simply opens the SIM tray of your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, and then look on the inside. You guys don’t need a torch for this, and you don’t have to look any deep either for this. Just simply check out the inner portion for its color. Now look for the indicator, which is by default in white color, and is not metal of course as well.

The white color indicates that your device is safe, and there is no liquid or water damage. However, if you guys are unlucky, you’ll see pink or red color, that just simply means that there has been liquid/water damage on your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge as well.

Here’s a summary:
  • First of all, you have to open the SIM tray first.
  • Now look for the color of the indicator:
    • If you guys see red or pink color in there, your device has taken water damage.
    • If you see white color, then there is no water damage on your device.

We hope that you are never in a situation where your costliest Galaxy device to date gets hit via water or any liquid for that matter. However, yes, if you guys are reading this, it probably means your device has already taken some hit, and now you guys are keen to verify it. We also hope you see white color!

What to do when there’s water damage?

Well, you just have to try to dry it up. Power off the phone and put it inside a bag of rice actually. Keep it there for a day. That should absorb all moisture out of it actually.

If the device is looking too wet, then you can consider placing the device under direct sunlight for some time as well. Take care to not leave it under sunlight for a long time because that could heat up and warm the phone as well.
