    I am going camping next week and wondering if I use my iPhone around/near a bonfire/camp fire would this cause the iPhone to smell smokey? And could this damage the phone?

    As long as your phone doesn't become too hot, you should be fine.

    You shouldn't have anything to worry about. Might smell a bit but nothing that won't go away after a couple of days.

    You’ll be fine. Your phone probably won’t smell like anything than a phone.

    I can't work out if this is a serious post or not but don't put your phone in the fire. Hope that helps.

    Of course I’m serious, Why would I go to the trouble of making a thread if I’m not serious.

    Anything that's downwind of smoke will end up smelling of smoke. Clothes, you, the tent, your sleeping bag, steel, glass. Wood burning smoke sticks to everything. But eventually... the odor disappears especially after stuff gets washed

    I have no idea. Could not believe you are worried about your iPhone around a camp fire, but I think you asked about dropping in a toilet and even if a metal desk will harm your phone so I guess you WERE serious!

    What's up guys, TechRax here and today I have a brand new, legit, gorgeous, gold iPhone XS Max. And I was wondering if it could survive being thrown into a campfire after being soaked in gasoline.

    I wouldn’t light a fire, or go near a fire.. maybe just stay inside if you are unsure of such things. Does your phone smell like ear after you hold it near your head? Does your phone smell like nose after you smell it?

    I'd put an extra screen protector on it just in case.

    I’ve used my phone near several fires and bbqs. The smell doesn’t stay on the phone like your clothes. Smoke hasn’t harmed my phone. I don’t let it get hot though. Smoke won’t hurt it.

    Smoke won’t do anything but be careful with little embers falling on the phone. I have a few marks on my oleophobic coating from being too close.

    It will be fine as long as you don’t put it too close to the fire. Enjoy the trip!

    This indeed.
