Edited by Mooyldz at 2017-7-4 06:11 \n\nHello
I feel really embarrassed. I forgot my phone in the rain for about 1h while playing tennis, yes in  the rain. I did everything I should not, i used the phone just after figuring it was wet to send a message then it started to act up. The Screen began flashing color fading. I switched off the phone. Then it completely stopped working for a while and the led notifications were in every color flashing repeatedly. Then i read a few things like drying with hair dryer or putting straight in rice box for 3 days. Which i tried. I did not use the hair drier too much because I knew it would be dangerous. Used it very low heat from far. My UMI plus started working but now the screen is constantly flashing with a white color. Also colorful stripes appears the more I use the phone.

I am really annoyed because this is my favorite phone ever. I do think that it is too late to repair but I need some opinion. The Umi plus seems impossible to disassemble and repair. I may order another one. The phone is still very responsive but battery charges very slowly and drains very quickly since then. Only thing is the screen hurts my eyes.  

Thanks for reading.

Regards

Is very easy to dismantle this phone if you know what you doing and you have some tools. Most tutorials are on YouTube so you should check there. I think that cheaper and more safe will be buy new phone and keep this one for spare parts as you probably will be very hard to diagnose correctly your phone as water could damage everything including motherboard which is hard to get and expensive.
