Cosmological symmetrons are usually assumed to have the symmetry breaking phase transition at low redshifts. In this talk I will explore the implications of relaxing (in a reasonable way) this assumption and I will present some preliminary constraints on such theories from cosmological data. I will also show some interesting features of the symmetron model from black holes physics.
