Smoke damaging electronics?

Hi guys, I’ve read something about smoke damage. Did I smoke damage my phone when a coal burning smoke hit it for like 10 seconds? Thank you

    When electronics are covered in smoke, they become prone to extreme overheating, which leads to pre-mature failure. ... Smoke travels to cooler temperatures and continues until the energy runs out. The main cause of damage is the acidity in soot. Acidity destroys metals, which causes discoloration and disintegration.

    No, it takes months and months of exposure to damage the electronics.

    I can't see how any significant amount of smoke could get **inside** your phone.  Don't worry about it.
