How to take care of your phone in the summer?

Between the heat, sand, and water, summer can be a relatively dangerous season for your phone, so it's important to be vigilant so it makes it to fall without damage.

Watch out for the sun

In the face of high temperatures, there is a possibility that your device may overheat dangerously.

To avoid the risk of overheating, which could damage the device, it is absolutely necessary to avoid excessive exposure of the phone to sunlight.

To cool it quickly, simply place it in the shade for a few minutes, in a cool place, and temporarily remove its protective wrapper.

You can put it near a fan, but definitely not in the refrigerator. In the car, during hot weather, it is better to put your phone in the glove box rather than on the seat or near the windshield.

In general, it is better to deactivate Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or even GPS when you do not need them, so as not to heat up the battery.

If nothing helps, it is a good idea to turn off your device and then turn it back on after a few minutes until it returns to normal temperature.

Fortunately, most models today automatically shut off when they exceed a certain temperature. Finally, to recharge your device, you should also choose a spot in the shade.

In the sand

On the beach, using a phone is highly discouraged.

Sand is actually quite dangerous for many reasons. Larger grains tend to scratch your screen quite easily while smaller grains can get into ports and cause damage inside the device itself.

Before using your device, consider providing it with a case and screen protector. When you are not using it, put it in a waterproof bag.

And to the water!

Finally, if your phone does fall into water, beware of the bad reaction: do not immerse your phone in rice. Just like sand, small particles can get inside the device and then damage it.

It is actually best to turn off the device immediately and then place it in a dry, well-ventilated place. You can then start tapping it gently, with the connector at the bottom, in order to evacuate most of the leaked water.

You can also wipe it with a paper towel or soft cloth, being careful not to insert any foreign object (paper, cloth) into the connector. Above all, never use a hair dryer or microwave to remove the last traces of moisture.
