And less than a minute screen goes blank and our Samsung phone become dead. Flashlight started blinking and the mobile screen was completely black.
And we kept the phone into water for more than 60 minutes to confirm that it is completely dead.

They told that the complete repair cost will be about 16,200₹-16,500₹ and the final bill was of 16,324₹.
But the main thing to note is that the Samsung F22 new phone price is 12,999₹ and we had paid 16,324₹ for the water damaged repair only.
So we reach to the conclusion that Samsung after sale services are the costlier than other smartphone brands.
And they took 3 days to repair the smartphone but when we got the smartphone we found that smartphone is working nicely.
Samsung also charges 350₹ as labour charges excluding of 18% GST for smartphone in which any spare part is replaced.
