The Golden Age of Nokia

When I was on holiday in Thailand, in 2002, a Korean guy on the same jungle trip as me, dropped his 2002-era Nokia phone in a stream. I thought it was toast, but he took it to pieces (case, circuit board, battery screen I think), and in a few hours it had dried and worked perfectly!

I don't know if modern smartphones have the same build quality, but this is clearly a good user experience.
