Is there any evaluation of how well the phones perform in the rain ? With wet fingers, can I unlock the phone, navigate to an app, a page, a tab, a screen, then zoom and pan, and type some keyboard text , and send/submit ?
Are raindrops when they impact the screen or run off the screen occasionally misinterpreted as finger gestures ? If smartphone works in the rain, does it work both in tropical monsoon 90 F and in temperate 30 F conditions ?
If this appears a strange question, imaging you are riding your bike around town in the rain trying to follow web based cycling navigation instructions and you keep tabbing between a saved map route (like map quest in Chrome, or RideWithGPS) and a live map app like Googlemaps or Apple Maps, and you will photograph or video discrepancies while riding between these online tools and the real world as maintained by the Dept. Of Transportation.
