    Default Braving the cold: which phone will work at -40 degrees Celsius?

    Designed in sunny California, the iPhone isnt too good at handling the cold in fact, Apple only guarantees it will work between 0C and 35C. Finns however encounter cold winters often, so a group of them started wondering which phone will last the most in freezing cold?

    They took the 15 of the most popular phones in Finland and decided to do a test all the way down to -40C. They plotted when phones first started exhibiting problems and when they stopped working completely.
    The test started at 0C and the temperature was dropped by 5 at a time. At the freezing point, all phones worked fine. At -5C, the Nokia N9s battery reported almost empty, while the iPhone 4S experienced SIM card issues. The iPhone surrendered at -10C.
    All LCD screens reportedly had issues below -10, while AMOLEDs were more resilient.
    You can read the blow-by-blow over at MacWorld.co.uk (hit the source link). Heres the chart that shows what happened first issues are shown in the left column, while the right column shows when the phones died.


    The winners are interesting the unassuming Nokia C1-01 and the half a decade old Nokia E65. Both experienced problems early on (-15C) but didnt die until -40C. Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S II (a flagship device) lasted as long as the tough Samsung Galaxy Xcover. To its credit though, the Xcover was the last phone to work issue-free all the way to the frost-bound end at -35C.

    I think the initially range is wrong. Pura duniya te kotojon e 35C+ e use kortese, ar ami nijei below 0 te use korsi, author probably meant 0-35F because pore nijei she -10C (14F) lekhse.
