Summer is the worst time of the year for your gadgets, especially smartphones because they’re with you wherever you go. Temperature shifts actually influence how your phone functions, so it’s important to protect your phone from temperature swings. Here’s how you can summer-proof your phone…
1. Buy a waterproof case
Waterproof cases are not just meant for monsoons but they also protect your phone from heat. In fact, summer is the time when you plan beach trips and pool parties. So if you have a waterproof case, you need not worry even if you accidentally jump in the water with your phone in your pocket. Life-proof and Dry Case are some good case options.
2. Never Leave Your Phone In The Car
You might want to get off the car for a few minutes but that’s enough to damage your phone. If your car is parked under direct sun, not just the car but also your phone will be fried. So avoid leaving it behind.
3. Protect Your Phone At The Beach
The direct heat can badly damage your phone while you are busy vacationing by the sea side. It’s best to keep your phone away from the heat by covering it with a piece of cloth or switching it off until it cools down. If not, avoid using your phone too much, because if the battery heats up, it can drain really fast and leave your phone damaged.
4. Avoid Using Sweaty Hands
Sweaty palms in summers are very common. Get a good screen protector for your phone’s display so that the display doesn’t turn greasy.
5. Get an Anti-Glare Screen
This is very useful in summers, as it saves you from turning your phone’s brightness all the way up. It keeps your phone from overheating and saves battery.
6. Don’t charge your phone in direct sunlight
In a worst-case scenario, an overheated phone’s battery can start to leak or catch fire, putting you at serious risk.
7. Never put your phone inside freezer if it is hot
Rapid temperature shifts are also bad for your phone. Condensation or moisture is more likely to become trapped inside your phone, causing problems. A better bet is to turn off your phone and leave it in a cool area for a while so it returns to room temperature
