Has the Samsung phone been exposed to water or moisture?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
it has
Expert:  *ElectronicsTech replied 18 days ago.

Okay, the Samsung has a 12 month warranty however the water may void the warranty, what happens in that process is that when you get it replaced under warranty you get a new phone and send your phone back, if they determine it has been water damaged you will be charged up to full price for the phone. The best option will be to get it replaced with insurance if you have it on the phone. If you don't have insurance it may be worth a try to get it replaced under warranty and then see how much if any you get charged after you send your phone in. In any case you need to back the phone up to your Google account immediately if possible.
