15 Things Your Smartphone Won’t Like…

Smartphone Destruction

Let’s face it, today’s smartphones don’t quite pack the same levels of durability we once saw from the likes of the Nokia 3210. But even still, we persevere with our more fragile handsets by investing in flashy smartphone cases and mobile insurance.

However, regardless of what kind of protection you choose, we can guarantee that your mobile phone won’t be surviving any of the following 15 occurrences, not that you’d want to test them out of course…

A Dip in a Volcano…

Your phone won't be loving lava...


Don't fancy quite this much heat? Maybe you should take a look at some of the more summer styled apps that are better for the British summertime!


Admittedly there aren’t a whole lot of these around, but with average temperatures of lave settling between 700-1200 degrees celcius, and your smartphone surviving up until around 60 degrees celcius, its chances of survival are slim…

To Infinity and Beyond!

This is definitely the final frontier for your smartphone!

Another left field inclusion, a trip to space might well be awe inspiring for you, but with temperatures of -270 degrees celcius and a lack of mobile connections, you’ll have yourself a dead smartphone in no time!

The Mariana Trench

Even the toughest waterproof phones won't last 11,000m under the sea!

The deepest place on earth, the Mariana Trench is a whopping 11,000 metres below sea level (or thereabouts). There isn’t a water resistant phone on the planet that will hack that, and it’s also probable that the pressure will also play its part in crushing the device as well!

A Warzone

More specifically, a warzone that’s full of well-trained snipers. Arguably the deadliest gun going is a .50 calibre rifle, put this up against an iPhone and your pocket based tech is in some really serious trouble. Get it a bullet proof vest and it might stand a chance…

‘Less Lethal’ Weaponry

The tazer is a long time weapon used by the likes of the police and security personnel, which is often named as a ‘less lethal’ alternative to guns. This doesn’t stay true to its word with your mobile phones however…

The Lawnmower

Talk about your close shaves...

You’d better be sure your smartphone isn’t frolicking in the grass when you decide to mow the lawn, because the chances are that your lawnmower will do a real number on your handset. Safe to say it will be a close shave in any circumstance!

Magnets, B*tch!

*Spoiler alert!* Just like in Breaking Bad, a strong enough magnet will mess your phone up, especially if they happen to be as strong as the ones in this video!

DIY

We’re not the best DIY-ers going, but even we know that the majority of smartphones won’t be standing up to a half-decent hammer blow. Other power tools aren’t exactly friendly to your mobile phones either…

Sunday Dinner

Who doesn’t love a good old Sunday Roast, eh? You’re smartphone, that’s who! If your phone falls into the baking tray then it’s going to be in some serious trouble!

A Choo-Choo Train!

Thomas the Tank Engine is great for kids, but if he decides to run over your mobile phone, there’ll definitely be some tears flowing from somewhere. Don’t go testing this one, it’s never a good idea to play with trains…

Gravity…

Gravity is a cruel mistress...

Gravity isn’t the best friend for many of us, least of all your smartphone, which is likely to see its screen splintered after any kind of fall to earth. Even in some cases, your phone will struggle to stay intact…

A Blender

We’re not too sure if this would ever happen by accident, but even still, it’s very unlikely that your smartphone will be surviving after a length of time in a blender. The point is proven here!

On the Ironing Board

Need to get those creases out of your smartphone? No, no you don’t. In fact, you’re best off double checking that your phone isn’t anywhere near your ironing board when you’re dealing with those pesky creases.

Microwaves

Don't fall for it people!

Don’t fall for it! Your microwave won’t be charging your smartphone anytime soon, in fact, it will do nothing but ensure you have a decent looking paperweight to make use of!

Ninja Attack!


Has your smartphone met an untimely demise? Maybe you should consider checking out some of our bargain smartphone deals! 


Probably a good idea not to start a fight against a sword wielding ninja, especially if a mobile phone is all you have to defend yourself. Simply put, you’ll end up with half a smartphone, and maybe some serious injuries…

So, can you think of any more imaginative things which wouldn’t be good for your smartphone, why not let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+?
