Putting PhoneSoap to the Test: an Outsider's Perspective
November 14, 2018 | By Kelli Sprunt
"Does PhoneSoap really work?"
We get this question all the time. With no visible evidence, it's hard to tell. Our short answer is YES, but you don't have to take our word for it. We aren't the only ones who've tested PhoneSoap products to see exactly what they can do.
First up . . .
You can read their full review here, but I've included the highlights below:
"I had the director of a local laboratory swab the screen of my iPhone XL and the back of my Speck Ultra Presidio case with sterile swabs. I then placed my iPhone X into the PhoneSoap 3 and patiently awaited the 10 minutes. At that point, the lid was opened, the front of the iPhone X was swabbed, and then the sides were gripped, and the back was swabbed. The pre-UV cleaned samples were not as spectacular as those seen before the HomeSoap testing. However, neither of the post-UV cleaned specimens had any bacterial growth. Similar to the experiment with the HomeSoap, the PhoneSoap 3 did not disappoint."
Here are his results:

This one is cool because you can see the process in which a lab technician swabs the phone and incubates the Petri dish.
This is a news station based in Houston, Texas. News anchor Tiffany Craig visited a lab at Rice University, and with some help from biosciences professor Dr. Matt Bennett, discovered that UV-C light does exactly what PhoneSoap promises. Here is a photo of their results.

This YouTuber reviews all things tech. He ordered a few Petri dishes and conducted the experiment right at home.
This thorough review is awesome because the author tests more than just his own phone. He also conducted his own experiment at home and gets awesome results, like the one below.
"In the photo above, you can see the before and after the result. The top Petri dish is the 'before' and shows a few different types of bacteria. (I let it incubate for 72 hours). The bottom dish shows how much of a difference one sanitation cycle can make. The dish has hardly any growth, which is impressive when you consider that the swabs were taken just five minutes apart."
