Thinking of taking your Phone to the beach? Think again!

Summer is here and its beach time however be aware of the dangers the beach can bring especially if you have your mobile phone with you.
One of the most common causes of damage is liquid damage, you wouldn’t have a shower with your phone or bring it in the bath with you, so why does it seem like a good idea to take a selfie in the middle of the ocean. It is one sure way to ensure your phone will suffer liquid ingress that leads to the phone shutting down. Salt water will cause damage faster and in some cases more damage than mains water. 

On the beach you use sun screen to protect you from the rays and prevent damage to your skin. Your mobile can also suffer damage as a result of prolonged direct sunlight. We have had cases where screens have cracked, melted, or have gone yellow as a result of heat and sunlight damage to screens. Make sure you have a good cover and keep the mobile out of direct sunlight this will mitigate the above happening.

Sand also can cause damage to connectors, charging points, headphone jacks if it gets into your mobile so be mindful of this. This can lead to charging ports not working and failing to charge in some circumstances.

Make sure you have a good cover for your mobile , keep it dry at all times and out of direct sunlight and sand .
