Winter is coming.....
Did anyone during last winter experience any negative effects in extreme cold weather? Sometimes for my job I have to be outside in winter where it can be -25°C and sometimes I've ridden to work with my phone in a jacket pocket. Any unresponsive screens? What about the glass back and front. And what about going inside from the cold, like a warm car or building?

Extreme temperatures tend to not be good.
As for the cold, it would probably be ok if you had it in a pocket, but I would put it in a pants pocket or something that will get some body heat. Cold will probably kill your battery faster and have some effects on your LCD screen. The bigger issue you might have is bringing it from a cold environment into a warm environment could cause condensation to form on the inside, which could damage the phone. You can help that by actually turning it off when you bring it inside until it warms up and the condensation evaporates so you don't have active electronics functioning in a wet environment.
I believe the general rule of thumb is to keep your phone above 32 degrees (at least for prolonged exposure).
Those are my intitial thoughts. If you Google for "smartphone in extreme temperatures" you'll find other info about it.
