i was charging my samsung galaxy S II phone the other day while driving, and i put the phone in one of the cup holders.  i didn't realize that there was a little bit of water/juice in the cup holder.  as a result i saw that there is some water on the outside of phone protector.  i wiped it off but a week later when i was checking the battery i noticed some water/condensation inside the phone. i dried that off too.  as far as i know there was no major damage to my phone, the water damager marker didn't change color, my internet speed seems normal.  the only things that lag are when i dial a number and hang up, sometimes the hangup is slow.  in addition, sometimes when i am typing email, the touch screen + swipe feature seems slow/unresponsive.  my question is is it possible for a water damaged phone to still work but somehow becomes slower?   or is it more of a firmware/software issue or just the fact that samsung galaxy SII phones don't have good dialing/email functionalities?  thanks.
