I arrived many times from outside the Schengen area and besides
passport control on arrival, 90 % of times I went through the green lane of
customs and nobody cared, 9 % percent of times a bored customs'
officer looked at my baggage with X-rays, one time they wanted to take
a look at a pack of wasabi powder. In all that times nobody ever
cared for my phone or my laptop/netbook. Sometimes the laptops
were scanned with x-rays at the security check or I had to turn them on.
