Police Urges People DON'T Do This With Your Phone When You Are In Bed


Police has been urged smartphone fans about the dangers of placing devices in the bed or under pillows overnight.

The hazards of taking phones to bed have been highlighted after a number of recent reports claim the gadgets overheated and caught on fire.

Now, police forces in the US are urging mobile users to exercise caution when charging or sleeping with phones in and around the bedroom.

Many apps, including sleep trackers, encourage users to place smartphones and tablets under the pillow but this could end in serious injury.

To show how dangerous leaving your phone in bed can be, the official Twitter account of the NYPD has shown off several photos of phones that overheated.

This includes shocking images of burnt pillows, bedding and phones that appear to have exploded.

Deputy Inspector Wilson Aramboles posted the photos alongside the warning, "Don't put your cellphone under a pillow when sleeping or when charging your device."

The warning comes just weeks after Samsung had to pull its phone from sale due to a major fire risk.

Some Samsung fans who had purchased the new Note 7 found themselves with some serious hot property after the devices caught fire.

Among the high-profile incidents were a Note 7 burning the inside of a hotel room – causing more than £1,000 worth of damage, incinerating the inside of a Jeep and bursting into flames inside a plane that was about to take off.

Samsung is now pinning its hopes on the new Galaxy S8 which should go on sale early next year.

The Korean tech firm recently announced it was helping Qualcomm to produce a super-fast and very skinny processor called the Snapdragon 835.

It's thought these new brains will be ready in early 2017 and may feature in Samsung's next-generation flagship S8.
