Over half of the damage done to cellphones are done in your own home. Most damage is done by dropping it, but liquid damage can also be a culprit. Let’s start with the safest room in your house and then go to increasingly more dangerous places for your cell phone to be.

CELL PHONE IN THE BEDROOM IS SAFEST

Only 7% of phone damage happens in the bedroom. Many factors can make this the safest place. In this room , you usually keep your cell phone in a single place and there usually aren’t as many hard surfaces around where you could drop your phone on.

THE DRIVEWAY ONLY CLAIMS 11%

Sure, the driveway doesn’t count as a room, but enough phone deaths occur here that it deserves its place on the list. Obviously most of these incidents happen while getting in and out of the car, often by dropping the phone on concrete or other hard surface. Most driveway damage results in a cracked cell phone screen, the most common.

THE LIVNG ROOM IS THE #2 THREAT TO YOUR PHONE

19% of all phone damage is done in the living room. Although the living room has fewer hard surfaces and, in theory, less potential for liquid damage, it is the place in your house where you are most active with your phone. In the living room you can place your phone on a number of different surfaces, not realizing where you set it down. You also drink beverages in the living room, and as such placing your drink near your phone introduces the risk of liquid damage. This room is the second dangerous place mostly because this is where you are most active and where you spend the most time.

THE KITCHEN IS WHERE YOUR PHONE DIES

Depending on your lifestyle, this can be where you spend most of your time. The kitchen is where everybody ends up at a house party, right? It also makes sense that the kitchen is the most dangerous place for your phone—every surface is hard and counterspace can get crowded quick. When you introduce water, cocktails, and other risks of liquid damage, you have a room that tops the list as the most dangerous for your cell phone.
