Turns out, if you ever drop your iPhone 8 in a bowl of Coca-Cola, and then just forget about it for the next seven days, chances are you will find your iPhone as good as new even after a week. This is a reading from an experiment done by Youtuber TechRax, who soaked a new Apple iPhone 8 in a plastic box filled with Coca-Cola for seven days, to see what effect it has on the smartphones.

In the video, we see, that the vlogger puts a fully functional, brand new iPhone 8 in a plastic box, and places a wireless charge plate beneath the box, so that during this week-long experiment, the iPhone battery is up and charged and its display remains lit. He then poured enough of the black soda in the box so that the device is fully submerged in it. He then sealed the box with a cellophane sheet, so that the carbonated bubbles do not escape the box, and have their full effect on the phone. During the course of seven days, the vlogger says he replaced the coke in the box every other day so that the phone doesn t just sit in a flat soda.

Now is the part where after seven days of soaking the device, the vlogger pulls the phone out of the box of Coca-Cola. (He, by the way, dried the device for another 12 hour, so that he could judge the prolonged effect of it on the device). From the outside the device was still a ten on ten , with no effect on aluminum, or any part of the smartphone s body. The touch remained untouched by the fizz of the Coca-Cola. He was surfing through the phone as easily as he did a week ago. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone 8 Review: When you know you want it, but still ask questions
The volume rocker worked perfectly fine, do did the vibrate switch, and the power button. The Touch ID worked well too. However, when he played some audio, the sound wasn t as clear as it generally is. The audio too wasn t playing at 100 percent volume, even though it was put up to full. But the camera he showed towards the end of the video was again unaffected. It was crystal clear with no blotchiness in it due to moisture.
