According to the expert, the screen and battery are the elements of smartphones that are most often exposed to hypothermia. Because of this, the battery loses its capacity, especially in prolonged frost, and the dynamics of liquid crystals deteriorates in screens, this is reflected in the response time and response of LCD sensors and smartphone screens. It should be borne in mind that gadgets based on IPS matrices can have all sorts of inhibitions. On diode displays, this usually does not happen, but “unpleasant flickering” may begin.
The specialist also noted that in the cold, you cannot trust the charge indicators, because the battery is discharged much faster.
To avoid such problems, you do not need to keep your smartphone in cold air for a long time, and certainly avoid extremes – do not leave the gadget on “icy” surfaces and in the snow, and when returning to warmth, you just need to leave it indoors so that the device warms up to room temperature temperature. From frost, you can not use fast charging, so as not to damage the battery.
“The smooth return of the smartphone to room temperature will also protect it from condensation, both outside and, more importantly, inside the case. A smartphone brought into a humid bath from frost can be compared to a “drowned” one in terms of the degree of risk, ”the expert noted.
