Synonyms of "Smartphone" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I left my smartphone in the train. and I left my smartphone on the train. ?
A: “In” almost sounds like your phone is in the engine or something, like inside the mechanism of the train. No one would assume you meant that, but that’s the visual I get. “On” means you left it on a seat or something inside the train.

Here are some general rules of thumb:

For public transportation, use “on.” (Trains, buses, planes, boats)

For private transportation, use “in” (cars, trucks)

For things that you are literally on rather than in, use “on” (bikes, motorcycles, scooters)
