Experts told how to recognize a hacked smartphone
Smartphones, like any electronic gadgets, are extremely sensitive to water, even in the form of splashes and steam. Often coffee or tea gets on the device, this can disable it.
Chertok noted that smartphones are rather large devices. You should be careful with narrow pants pockets: you should not wear a device in it, because the body bends from bending stress, the glass peels off, and other invisible violations occur in the case.
It is also contraindicated to carry a smartphone in a pocket or bag in the same compartment with keys, metal zippers and other hard objects, the expert said. The reason is obvious – the glass and the case can be scratched this way. In addition, Chertok advised not to use cheap, disposable Chinese network or car chargers.

The interlocutor of the agency also recommended not to keep the phone in the reach of small children or animals.
“I think that many have experienced the most unpredictable effects of their influence on their gadgets,” the expert added.
In conclusion, he warned about the dangers of self-flashing a smartphone, or installing unsuitable system software on it.
“If you are not a professional in this matter, then self-tuning can lead to the fact that in your hands there will be not a communication device, but a piece of useless plastic,” the expert concluded.
