    Will using smartphones outside in foggy days damage them?

    I know the fog is formed by water but still not sure if it can damage smartphones. I see people using them in very foggy days though.

    Not unless they get dripping wet and the water gets inside. That goes for any cellphone.

    I don't know about fog but I suspect that long periods of high humidity (e.g. Florida, Louisiana) may trigger the "water damage" sensors.

    Don't know about OP but when I step outside from my air-conditioned home with my phone , the device gets covered in condensation with the screen being saturated almost with water droplets. I hope the insides are ok lol. No issues so far.

    No specific make or models. Just phones that I currently have or owned in the past. Currently have a iphone xs max and a Google Pixel 4a. In the past owned various samsung and Huawei devices.
