    That's why I don't trust water resistant phones. My wife want a Sony phone for the same reason, but I'm not convinced.

    Water resistant phones are not water proof. It's practically the only case for having a sealed battery - the user can't screw things up. If you use after-market accessories, you CHOOSE to risk having it not work 100%.

    Samsung offers Qi compliant case (S-View and regular for $70 and $30 respectively) that still retains the water resistance. Why wouldn't you just simply by one of those?

    I don't know about you, but $30 seems much better than potentially saving a few bucks... meanwhile risking your $700+ phone.

    Incidentally, there are services that will try to repair the water damage if it's minor enough and / or fast enough. I saved a Galaxy Nexus from light water damage for $100ish. If you do notice a malfunction due to water damage, take out the battery and get it to these third party companies ASAP before the water can corrode anything further.

    It was just for testing. It was going to get replaced anyways for other reason.

    Moving right along, there are issues with the OEM QI back plate as well. Most people don't like them because they are always thick enough to not fit in any case. Okay they fit in maybe 2.5% of the cases on the market.

    Also threw the Moto G in the water. Nano coating + seals would be the best case scenario IMO.
