    It’s common for phones to produce water from speakers after being submerged. This happens with almost all waterproof phones.

    She could have inserted the iPhone which was in pool, in the bag of rice over night and it would have been perfect. But ….CNET and their review ladies are the rarest and best ;

    In real life of usage, you will heartbreaking when your iPhone Xs submerge in to any kind of liquid because it is a very expensive device with plenty of advertising but less innovation.

    So.. IP68 actually means 1,5m for 30min.
    IP67 is 1m for 30min.

    Just spilling liquids is something almost all phones can handle without any IP rating…

    My iPhone X sustained water damage after I took it in the swimming pool and the face ID camera no longer works. Everything else about the phone still works remarkably.

    That red water indicator is bogus, because TMobile does that and would not take back a phone with a red mark. How do I know that mark doesn't generate after a short time from just regular humidity or small amounts of water from using the phone in the rain.

    I do have to say that I do not need to worry about water on it that much now. I can be in the rain with my phone in my hand and not worry about damaging it.

    Even though this is a iPhone test but I think Samsung phones should have a water indicater

    Drop the phone in 2M of salt water for 30 minutes.
    Then rinse, then let us know.
    All of the other “tests” you performed were lame.
