Default Replacing i9 // what about the i10 ?

Hello guys,
Yesterday night my i9 went through a complete cycle in the family washer (along with a Fiio E11 headphone amp) ...
There is moisture in the display. Other than that, everything seems OK (and the E11 is fine too). These are tough toys!

Anyway, I was thinking about a replacement player in a somewhat near future, in case the screen doesn't get better.

Here's my actual question: would you rather buy another i9 or get a newer i10 ?
I've read good and not-so-good things about the i10. How would you compare it to its predecessor?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry to hear of the water incident :/ Since I already have the i7 & i9 in my case if it had to be one of the 2 I'd go with the newer model. But if you can afford the extra spend, I'd go with the J3 instead

Thanks Ramón,
I did check the J3's specs, actually!

While I'm at it, here's a picture of my i9's display 18 hours after the « incident ». Do you think there's any chance to have it back to normal?

Thanks!

I’ve had electronics fall in the pool and was able to save them. The steps I had to take were to disassemble as much as possible, not turn on device until it was completely dry (turning it on can fry something even if you don't have issue at first power up) and to replace the battery (battery was shot from submersing). I left device in warm car for about a week until all the water behind the screen was gone, but others use a can of rice with your device inside it till the rice absorbs all the water (this too can take a few days). Good luck with saving it ...

Eastern France in January is quite different from Florida so the week-in-a-car program won't do it I'll just put the drowned machine close to the chimney then
Thanks for your words of hope!

48 hours in a bowl of rice in front of the fireplace did the trick. Everything's back to normal for the mighty i9!
No need of a new i10 or a J3 I guess...

Thanks anyway for taking interest Ramón.
