  1. My wife dropped her Huawei Mate 20 Pro in a river today paddling in under a foot of water. It took us perhaps 15 minutes to find it and retrieve. Initially it still worked and we were hopeful as it was waterproof. A few hours later the lenses on the camera had steamed up and nothing worked including the on/off switch. The screen was still lit. We are off to a phone shop tomorrow but I am not hopeful. The phone is sealed so dismantling to dry will not be easy.
