    long story short I dropped my hero into a glass of water while half asleep.. I immediatly pulled the battery out and threw the whole thing into a bag of rice for 2 days..

    pulled it out today and.. it works. But theres noticable water streaks on the screen when you look at it from an angle..

    Will these streaks ever go away?

    I have insurance, so I can get a new one for 100$.. but not sure If i should throw the money at it since it still works perfect, minus these ugly streaks

    You could strip the phone and clean the streaks, I doubt they will go over time without some intervention.
