Although some people say they love the winter rain, I, for one, am not a fan. Soaked hair, potential umbrella eye poke-age, and wet socks are among the many things I can't stand.
Handling my smartphone in the rain is also a challenge. If there's no awning around for me to seek refuge under and I need to use my device, I'm forced to whip it out and play a game of chicken: As in, how many raindrops can I tolerate landing on my display before I get uncomfortable and tuck the handset back into my pocket?
Fortunately, you won't have to make that decision if you own one of these phones below. Due to their water-resistant construction, they'll most likely have an easier time surviving the next rainstorm better than myself.Editors' note: This post was originally published August 6, 2013, and is updated frequently.
