Then it went through the washer, full cycle.
I waited for four days before even trying it. It seemed like forever. It turned on, but wouldn’t charge the battery. So I thought the battery had died when it hit the water. Good enough guess. Ordered a new battery and waited for a few more days. The battery arrived, and I plugged it in. Same deal, wouldn’t charge. Something got fried in the charging circuit. Game over. I will give a try at getting it repaired, but for now, I need a new phone.
So I went and got a new one. Yup, the exact same one. Even though the new Galaxy Nexus is coming out this month, it has a 5MP camera and that is not going to cut it. The 8MP camera on the Galaxy S2 rocks! I take better pictures on it than on my real camera. The Galaxy Nexus will apparently get Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). That sounds great, but in a few months, that will not matter, So will the Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S2 is a good phone. Battery life is good, and it doesn’t run hot for what I do.
