How to take good care of your phone in the summer

Between the heat, sand, and water, summer can be a relatively dangerous season for your phone, so you need to be vigilant so that it can reach fall without damage.

Beware of the sun

When faced with high temperatures, there is a chance that your device will heat up dangerously.

To avoid the risk of overheating, which could damage the terminal, it is absolutely necessary to avoid exposing the phone to too much sunlight.

To cool it quickly, simply place it in the shade for a few minutes, in a cool place, temporarily removing its protective shell.

You can possibly place it near a fan, but definitely not in the refrigerator. In a car, during very hot weather, place your phone preferably in the glove compartment rather than on a seat or near the windshield.

Generally speaking, it is better to deactivate Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or GPS when you do not need them, to avoid heating up the battery.

If nothing works, it is a good idea to turn off and then turn the device back on a few minutes later so that it returns to a normal temperature.

Fortunately, most models now automatically turn off when they exceed a certain temperature. Finally, to recharge your device, it is also advisable to choose a place in the shade.

In the sand

On the beach, the use of the telephone is strongly discouraged.

Sand is indeed formidable for many reasons. Large grains will tend to scratch your screen quite easily while smaller ones can enter the ports and cause damage to the inside of the device itself.

Before using your device, remember to equip it with a case and a protective film on the screen. When you no longer use it, place it in a waterproof pouch.

And to the water!

Finally, if it falls into water, beware of the bad reflex: do not immerse your phone in rice. Just like with sand, small particles could indeed get into the device and then damage it.

It is actually better to turn off the device immediately and then place it in a place that is both dry and well ventilated. You can then start tapping it gently, with the connector down, in order to evacuate most of the infiltrated water.

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