    I accidentally dropped the corner of my new Galaxy S8 into some Japanese creamy sauce. It filled the holes of my speaker, and although I tried dabbing it out I am now hearing very little sound from videos, phone ringing, etc. I have NO IDEA what to do to remedy the situation. Can anyone help me?

    It should be under warranty if it's new, take it back to your carrier.
    And stay away from the Japanese creamy sauce

    I've had it for almost two months. I know I had 30 days to return it, but I'm not sure if that is the warranty period...? I'll call Best Buy tomorrow. Anyone else?

    The phone's waterproof so try putting it in a bowl of cold water for a couple of minutes ;)

    My husband had a dental "explorer" tool that he let me use to very carefully probe the speaker output openings. I was able to remove most if not all of the cream sauce! I can once again hear the beautiful audio and actually hear my phone ring! Thanks to all of you for trying to help me figure it out...I was truly sick about it, and it was nice to know there were people out there willing to try and help me. THANK YOU!
