Today it rained cats and dogs at Ikeja and I was caught up in it outdoors. A filling station was my place of refuge from the showers. After a while, a wind showed up and began to send the rain at those of us under the shelter of the station. I had to move. Moreover I had appointments to meet up with. I also needed to make an urgent phone call to make with respect to one of those appointments.
As I crossed the road in search of fresh shelter, I pulled out my backup phone, a Nokia 1616. There was no hesitation about it. Right out in the rain, I made not one but two phone calls before returning it to the relative safety of my pocket.
That Nokia phones are rugged isn’t news anymore but this was one that amazed even me. My Samsung Galaxy S was scared shitless in my pocket all this while and I couldn’t even dare think to bring it out in the heavy torrent.
I still think that Nokia makes the best budget phones out there. This was a clear example of why I love my Nokia.
