Smartphones-Heroes and Smartphones-Feat Objects

ESET, which produces antivirus programs for electronic devices, counted that 17% of Russians dropped their smartphones into the water at least once, and another 13% stumbled upon something while watching on monitors of their phones. 

Young Cologne (Germany) resident didn’t stuble, but dropped his beloved telephone into the lake while he was fishing. But he didn’t go the shop to a new one – he just decided to pump water out of the lake. He bought an electric pump and two hoses (one was put into the water reservoir, and another one into the water closet). He turned on the pump and began to wait for the smartphone.

However, he wasn’t lucky to see this moment because he was interrupted by policemen who fined him. Local gasoline station worker saw water flowing from lavatory and called the police. «I understand that the smarphone couldn’t be saved but the information inside it was very important: photos, video and contacts»? – the teenager excused himself.

Dave McGregor, another amateur of water rest, decided to swim on kayak near Australian shore, but he preliminarily bought a waterproof cover for his iPhone. He did it right because he dropped his gadget into the water whilуhe was taking pictures of the surroundings. Dave was upset not as much as his Cologne fellow sufferer and continued his journey. A couple of monthes the smartphone was taken to the shore by a tide and found. The founder called McGregor’s dad and the gadget was returned to its owner who is determined to publish an underwater video.

And a group of enthusiasts decided to test the strength of one of new models of Sony smartphones - Xperia Z2, which is positioned as a fresh water proof gadged, but the producer doesn’t recommend to put it under water deeper that 1,5 m and not longer that 7 days. Blogers did it with 10 m and 6 weeks! Moreover, they used salty water which corrodes the elements of the phone which make it water proof.

When the smartphone was taken out of the water and dried, it continued to work. The salt damaged the case but it didn’t influence on functionality of the gadget.
