That is the single best quality of the S5 in my opinion. Definitely something worth considering, if they haven't already duplicated it with the iPhone 6. Too many people lose phones this way. I...

The only thing you're going to see is corrosion - and that won't appear for quite a while after the liquid exposure. With micro-circuitry like this, it's very difficult to see anything burnt.

Nope. The Retina models have the memory soldered fast. There is no way to upgrade outside of what Apple supplies. If they don't offer a 16GB option from the factory, then you're stuck with 8GB.
