“Try to literally keep your device warm. If you’re outdoors, it’s best to keep your phone in your pocket. If you need to make a call, use Bluetooth headphones if possible.”
To prevent damage from the fragility of the screen in cold weather, you can use a special thermal cover or use fabric, knitted, suede or synthetic covers that can retain heat.
Electronic devices work better at temperatures above freezing, so it is not recommended to leave your phone in the cold for a long time to avoid turning off and quickly draining. Also, you should not leave gadgets in the car during the cold season.
After returning to a warm room, it is recommended to give the phone time to gradually warm up, avoiding placing it on a battery to avoid condensation forming inside the device.
