Zenfone 7 dropped in water, saved and working fine but worried about the camera.
Hey forum, I've got a situation with the camera of my Zenfone 7. Mine is about to turn 1 year of use and I really like it, it's a very, very solid phone overall.
The thing is, about 1 week ago I dropped it full into water in my bathroom sink. Was able to turn it off immediately and bring it to a phone tech specialist I know.
To my surprise, he was able to open it, replace some transistors and pins, reassemble it back again and it's working perfectly fine, except for a small little thing: the camera makes weird vibrations when retracted or sometimes when I pick it up.
I've recalibrated the camera and seems to be a bit better, but now I'm mostly worried about the water that had contact with the camera hardware. Would it be safe to apply lubricants like wd 40? How would you do it? Any other chances to prevent further problems or weathering of the camera engine? Thank you all!
