It is believed that airport X-Ray machines wipe the data on our smartphones and laptops. This is entirely false, as hard drives, flash drives and optical drives are not affected by X-rays.
Camera films are at risk with the X-Ray, and metal detectors can really do wipe the data in the hard disk.
Advertising of more megapixels makes a great marketing strategy in smartphones, with the numbers going to 64 and 108 MP.
