    From yesterday I noticed in all my 3 cameras some fog, and the microphone just stopped working... idk why that's happening because I never dropped my phone into the water...and this should be "water resistant"?
    Help please

    "water resistant" != "waterproof"

    And the phone has never been marketed by OP has having any sort of IP rating. So either your lens needs cleaning or moisture has got inside the phone. Which can happen from more than just being "dropped in water". From the experience working in a phone shop, other causes could be:

    Using it in a humid or steam filled environment (eg Kitchen or bathroom)
    The phone being in the pocket of a waterproof coat pocket (sounds unintuitive, but condensation can form inside a pocket if it's warm like on a glass window)
    Using the phone when there's rain around.

    sure I did, but from that video they wanted to say that the phone is water resistant even with no up ratings because they cost money, but I never dropped my phone in the water and the damage still here... I'm disappointed

    If you never dropped it in water, how did it get wet? You implied it got wet, so what actually did happen?

    It can happen if for exemple the phone is in the bathroom and he's taking a hot shower, the water can penetrate the phone in gas state

    You could place the phone in a jar of uncooked rice filled to the top and keep is air tight overnight. See if the condensation disappears.

    possible, but unlikely

    .and so is a trip to any humid country. walking outside from air conditioning is more likely even, but I haven't seen reports of that, not experienced it myself and my phones have experienced severe humidity.
