I read on another question that the Motorola Defy is a good choice if you want a water resistant phone. I assumed I wouldn't get the phone wet so water resistance was not a factor I considered when I was deciding which phone to buy. As it happened I ended up buying an HTC Desire.
However I do occasionally find it convenient to operate the phone in light rain, or with wet hands. So far no problems apart from a slightly unresponsive touchscreen sometimes, but I'm wondering how much of a risk am I taking here?
- Could operating the buttons while they are slightly wet cause permanent damage to the phone? If so, how likely is it to happen in practice?
Mostly I'm interested in the HTC Desire, but if you have had a similar phone that was damaged by a small amount water then that would be interesting too.
