How to Check for Water Damage on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Water Sensors


There are 2 water damage sensors located on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. One is shown in the first picture above and is only visible from the inside of the midframe. 


The second water indicator is located on the top of the battery as shown in this picture 

When a water damage indicator is exposed to water or a high level of moisture (sweat) it will turn from white to red. A red sensor indicates the warranty on your phone is void and will no longer be covered under manufacture warranty.
