Very different experience...
I've had my HOX since July now (won in a prize draw
). Although I am very careful with it, around a month ago I managed to splash about three large drops of boiling water on the screen whilst making tea.
I wiped it off immediately, of course, but with the display being so close to the glass I was terrified it would have done instant damage. It still seems fine.
Also, I have been caught in a downpour a couple of times while out cycling - the phone pocket on my cycling jacket is supposed to be watertight.
I'm not sure any rain actually got in (unless it ran down the headphone wire), but when I took the phone out there was a heck of a lot of condensation on it, front and back. This seems to have caused no ill effects either.
