Hi. Shopping for a phone. Impressed with Note II until I saw this: "Do not allow the touch screen to come into contact with water. The touch screen may malfunction in humid conditions or when exposed to water." I'm fine with not dunking my phone in my coffee, but a drop of rain, or sweat *on the screen* may cause malfunctions? How do folks use these phones in real-world, outdoor, non-arid situations? Even if you live in the desert, do you have to put this phone in a ziplock if you want to leave it on the counter in the bathroom while you take a shower? Taking responsibility to keep the guts dry is one thing, and perfectly understandable. But I make phone calls, take pictures and do myriad other phone tasks outdoors in a 4 seasons climate. The warning quoted above makes me think that there is no way this device could suit my needs. I'll be grateful for your comments. Comments to the effect that certain other phones may have the same limitation will not be helpful. By way of context, the only Apple device I have ever owned is an iphone. I'm not thrilled with it (obviously) and I have to take reasonable care to keep the insides dry, which I do with no complaint. But the thing is that I can make calls when I am out in the snow or rain and if a few flakes or drops land on the screen it has zero apparent effect. Also I can take a picture even when my fingers are moist, leave the thing by the sink when I hop into the shower, etc. I never imagined that such simple things were not possible with all smart phones. Are there accessories available to hermetically seal the phone/screen without cramping utility too much, or what? How do you good people make this phone work in the real, damp world? Thanks very sincerely. This is my first post here, and I am not insulting anyone or anything, just asking for feedback. If this thread could start and end without any personal attacks or insults, that would be great.
