I took my phone to repair center for water damage and nothing happened

Hi I just want to ask a question about repairs, basically I dropped my phone in water and got it to a repair center hoping they can fully recover it, instead they offered me a screen replacement. I said no because they’re asking for 3500php (73 $) and said they’ll just clean it or remove the water that’s inside the device, I saw them spray something on the components and proceeded to piece it back together. My concern is: I’m planning to get the screen replaced next month and would that be too late and still worth it? Or will the phone survive another month. Basically what I mean is will the other parts be okay since they did something? I’ve only had the phone for two weeks btw it’s a gift from my dad.

Liquid damage in electronics is like cancer. It needs to be treated immediately. Keep in mind that regardless of the technician’s skill, they can’t 100% repair liquid damage and most repair shops won’t offer any kind of warranty for liquid damage so it could work fine for an hour then die and you’ll be out the money. You might be better off recovering the data and purchasing a new unit.

Most repair shops won't even work on water damaged phones because once they are wet they can still corrode over time. The only reason they will work on phones is to retrieve data and photos. I would take it to another shop and get the data out of it but if you don't want any data or pictures I would buy another phone.

Personally, if it was my phone - and a gift from my dad - I'd take the chance on replacing the screen. I don't know how much it will cost you in the Philippines, but here in the US they're fairly inexpensive; I just looked one up on another question and found it for about $24 USD on Amazon after a very cursory search.

There are a couple of reasons for my thinking. First, your quick action it taking it to a repair shop immediately was a good call; assuming they did a good job of flushing the water out hopefully they saved it from further damage, at least as much as possible. Secondly, if it's still working next month when you're ready to replace the screen, that's a good indicator that it may well continue to work in the future.

The fact that the screen failed immediately is not surprising; it's very common for screens to die when exposed to liquids. One other item you might consider is the battery; usually it's recommended that the battery be replaced whenever it's been exposed to liquid.

Good luck; let us know what you decide and how it all turns out for you!
