A dense fabric or other materials that prevent the natural cooling of the device, can be harmful. Best in the heat of the smartphone feels without a case or cover with lots of holes.

Can I swim with the phone

Even if your smartphone supports the relevant standard, it does not mean that sand and water can’t harm your device. Sea water, if desired, easily oxidized contacts of the charging, and the sand will penetrate into the lattice dynamics so that to get it will be possible only in the service center. Remember, there is no any requirement to ensure that the phone worked and during the “bath”. The tests have limited conditions, reflected in the fact that the phone will be able to maintain their performance after the “water treatment”.
