Re: Which Smartphone for Sailing
If I wanted a smartphone for sailing or any "water" use I'd buy on the rare few that are waterproof, i.e. Motorola Deny, Samsung Rugby Pro, with the intention of using it as a phone. If I wanted a device to run apps, I'd by a 7" tablet with a bright screen and probably slap a waterproof housing on it. There are a few sold as water resistant but again not many. The extra screen size helps but they're still small enough to stick in a cargo pocket.
