I lost my Samsung s20 about 2 months a go.
It was found but as it had been raining got wet.....I did the rice trick which seemed to work up until a few days a go...I can't use USB port for headphones/charging and shows moisture detected.
I've googled and says clear usb cache....but no change.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Use a wireless charging pad, this is what I have to resort to if the message comes up, however no water actually enters the port, so I'm guessing condensation possibly?

I can think of a way, but a bit fiddley, get a car charger holder that has a wireless charger built into it, but also has the arms to hold the phone in place, and iirc, these chargers have a micro USB socket, so could just wire it up to say, a power bank, and can sort of, charge on the go.....possibly

@alifpb: If you should regularly see a water droplet icon on your S20, and if this prevents you from accessing certain settings or features, or charging your device, then I recommend arranging for the phone to be inspected and repaired. In this instance, head to samsung.com > Scroll to the bottom of the page > Contact us, and get in touch via your preferred contact method for further support.
