Smartphones are, in actuality, small computers that can perform multiple tasks at once, depending on the specs. Since they tend to overheat, smartphones need proper ventilation. One woman learned this lesson the hard way.
A woman from Columbus, Ohio reportedly got scorched by her two year-old phone, an HTC Evo Shift. It was so hot that it left some nasty burns on her skin. Jennifer Grago was doing some yard work one day while listening to the radio on her phone.
Since she didn't have any pocket, she opted to put the phone in the band of her sweats. "I felt my phone getting warm so I moved it and trucked on. Figured sweatpants and 70 some degrees was a factor. Went to move it again and it hurt like a #%&@! and skin with it. I swear to god I almost passed out,” writes Jennifer.
