How to Fix A Water Damaged iPhone or Samsung Phone

It was reported from foreign media that many users have ever accidently made their cell phones fall into swimming pools, closestools or beer glasses, or even put them into washing machine with jeans. In these situations, what should you do?

Fix A Water Damaged iPhone
1.You should get your phone out of the water as soon as possible, immediately remove the battery in order to prevent short circuits; at the same time take out the SIM card to avoid losing the contact information. The longer the phone stays in the liquid, the more severe damage it suffers.
2.Watch whether the water damage sensor changes its color. It is a white point near the battery holder. If it turns red, support service staff will know this is not a problem of equipment quality and that instead it's a result of you using the phone improperly to make it water-damaged. So don’t expect repair service and insurance in this situation, just pay to get it repaired.
3.It's lucky for your phone to fall into freshwater rather than salt water. Because the salt water will form into salt crust in the phone’s delicate internals. Thus, if your phone falls into the sea water by accident, you only need to wash it with freshwater lightly -- certainly after removing battery as well as SIM card, before drying.

4.Each part of the phone with a piece of cloth or handkerchief. Don't move or shake it too much, lest the water runs around your mobile phone inside.
5.Try wrapping the mobile phone with cloth or handkerchief for a few minutes, creating a little vacuum effect to suck up excessive water. If possible, put your phone in the place with warm air circulation for several hours.
6.Finally, place your phone into a jar or a bag filled with rice for over 24 hours. During the process you must keep your phone off. Rice is absorbent so that it can help you save your damp phone.
7.24 hours later, you can try powering on the phone. I wish there is no remaining corrosion or shorting. If the charger works but battery can't, you have to change some parts of your cell phone.

fix water damaged phone
Four rescue steps:
Step 1. Save the mobile phone out of water. Take out the battery as fast as you can.
Step 2. Remove SIM card out of the phone, make it sucked up by handkerchief and then dry it out at a ventilated and dry place.
Step 3. Use a hairdryer to blow it with cold wind one or two hours, or use a fan to blow it a day and night. Then place it somewhere ventilated and dry. If the ways above don't work, just directly put it at a ventilated and dry place, after three days turn on the phone. (If disassembling tool is at hand, you’d better use it to take apart the cell phone to dry each component, which works better.)
Step 4. Generally speaking, your cell phone can recover well after the three steps above unless it soaks in the water for too long. If it can't recover, maybe the motherboard is broken and you should take it to the repairing pit.

1. Using a hairdryer to blow the water damaged phone with hot wind or exposing it under the sun will easily make its circuit board out of shape.
2. Don't power off the phone by pressing "off" switch. Because once you press “off” switch, the phone will power up and perhaps short-circuit occurs, which leads to a damaged motherboard of it.
3. Don't restart your wet phone to take a try frequently. At least 24 hours later, put on the battery and try to see how the matter is getting on.
4. Don't touch any key on the phone in case that short-circuit damages it.

Now you know how to save a wet phone. But do you think the recovery process is over? "No!" Inevitably, data loss usually takes place with a damaged phone. How to do depends on the system your phone uses. Here I mainly talk about file recovery of iPhone and Android phones.
If you are an iPhone users, once your want to fix "iPhone water damege" issue, you can try the following steps:

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer with a USB cable.
Step 2. Run the iPhone Data Recovery and choose a suitable one from the three ways: Recover from iOS device/iTunes backup/iCloud backup.
Note: If you select "Recover from iCloud Backup File", you have to sign in your Apple account as it requires.
Step 3. Click "Start Scan" to scan the files you choose and preview them.
Step 4. Tick the categories you want to recover files from. Choose those data you want to get back and click "Recover" button to recover them.

If your water-damaged phone runs Android OS system, to recover lost data from it with Android Data Recovery, you can refer to How to Recover Deleted Files on Android.
For more references, you should backup important files often and take good care of your phone in case that it suffers water damage.

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Apple iPhone 5s - From Restore Samsung Contacts Blogger

When talking about the most popular smart phones, iPhone and Samsung may come to our mind more often than not. Some users are quite confused about which one to choose when they want a new phone. In the following part, I will tell about their differences in eight aspects. It is left for you to decide if iPhone 5s or Samsung S5 is better because everyone has his own taste.

1. Appearance: Both with Their Own Features
The first impression that a phone makes comes from its exterior design. The main part of Samsung Galaxy S5 is made of IP67-Level waterproof and dust-proof plastics while the material of iPhone 5s is more metal-like.
The size of iPhone 5s is smaller in height, width and breadth and, due to this fact, it weigh less than Samsung S5.
In terms of colors, there are more for Galaxy S5 than for iPhone 5s. Samsung users can choose among black, blue, white or brown which iPhone users grey, white or golden. You can see all of them in the pictures below. And it is quite difficult to determine which is more user-friendly. Some just like phones with bigger screen, but some prefer smaller phone. Also, Apple has released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus considering the former’s need.

2. Interface: Samsung is More Complicated
Generally, iOS 7 is simpler than TouchWiz. Samsung users hardly use those fancy functions such as gesture-based control and intelligence operation.

3. RAM and Battery: Larger RAM and Battery for S5
The RAM of iPhone 5s is 1GB and that of S5 is 2GB. As for memory, Apple offers us with 16GB/32GB/64GB of storage while Samsung 16/32 of that. But, MicroSD card is not supported by iPhone. Let’s just said that each have their own advantages.

4. Resolution: Samsung S5 is Clearer
The 4-inch screen of iPhone is at a resolution of 1136*640 while the resolution of Galaxy S5’ 5.1-inch screen is 1920*1080. Apparently, with a pixel density of 432ppi, Samsung has clearer a screen than iPhone which is 326ppi/pixel.

5. Fingerprint Sensor: S5 was more powerful
Notice the word “was”? Yeah, in the past, Paypal is only supported by Samsung. But, this year, with iOS 8, things are not quite the same now. The only difference when using the sensors is that you have to swipe down your finger on a S5 and hold it still on an iPhone 5s.

6.Camera: The Rear Camera of S5 is 16-Megapixel
Most users like taking pictures with their phones as it is convenient. And now, with the better and better camera a smart phone has got, it is believed that more and more people is going to use them as a traditional camera alternative. The rear camera of S5 is 16-megapixel, twice higher than iPhone 5s. And the front camera of Samsung is 2-megapixel while that of iPhone 5s is 1.2-megapixel. And yet there are more functions offered by the Samsung camera app. Besides, Samsung users are allowed to do a 4K video.

7.Service: Apple Does Not Only Offer Hardware But Also Software
The OS on Samsung S5 is Android while that on iPhone 5s is created by itself. And when software combined with hardware, it is usually better than a single one of them. The famous iCloud and iTunes can be taken for examples here
