While it's quite believable that a special new total power down mode would help reduce damage, surely owners must have realised that some components like speakers or LCDs are still likely to be damaged by a dunking in water?
I would say a good lesson learned but if you're that stupid it would never take.

What was the point of performing the test? If it worked (!) one is no better off than not having performed the test.  When it didn't one has lost a few hundred pounds.
When I bought double glazing I was shown a video how the toughened glass would withstand impact from a heavy weight. After I had bought it I didn't feel the urge to put it to the test.
(I have seen on TV treatments that can be given to mobile phones to make them water resistant. I think that involved nano particles. As far as I could judge this was in a reputable programme and not an April 1st jest.)
