The dark side of taking your phone into the bathroom

Gadgets
If you keep your Smartphone in the bathroom while you shower, you're doing it all wrong. Many of us like having background music on during our daily rinse. Maybe you want to zen your mind or work on your singing voice. [MUSIC] Yeah, no! And what easier way to get some tunes going then with your phone? Well, here's the problem. Unless you're using devices like the S6 Active, your phone just won't hold water. As your shower heats up and heat fills the room, moisture slowly seeps into the nook and crannies of your phone. Over time, that could damage your device. Almost all devices have a hidden sticker that turns red when it's Is exposed to water. It uses the [UNKNOWN] factor when you've been clumsy. With enough shower that sticker could change colors even if it never took a dive. The solution here is to leave your phone in another room and connect it to a water proof bluetooth speaker then take that into the bathroom so you could enjoy your favorite tune. And now you're doing it right. Oh and taking your phone with you to the toilet, definitely, definitely doing it all wrong. [SOUND].
