4G RUGGED PHONES FOR TRADIES
[NOTE: THIS PHONE WAS A 2015 MODEL, IT HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE PHONE IN THIS VIDEO BELOW]
Got one of those sleek wafer thin, S-something smartphones but you broke it? Or maybe out on the site you got caught in a rainstorm and S-something spat the dummy. Shame that the phone got dropped in the mud and you can’t wash it.
Good news. We have the solution. All the features and more of an $1100 phone, at less than half the price, and with a 12 month warranty against manufacturing hardware defects.
At Investigate magazine, we needed rugged smartphones that could handle all weather extremes, could take a bit of outdoors rough and tumble, and which had battery life that lasted longer than sundown.
So we searched the world for something the big telcos don’t offer: rugged smartphones compatible with New Zealand and Australian networks. From the hundreds of models on offer, we found ones that worked where you work, and with expandable memory.
Guaranteed compatible on all mobile networks, these phones are also dual sim, meaning you can run two phone numbers on the one handset. Fantastic for travelling (keep your own number for incoming calls from home and twin it with a local prepay sim at your destination for cheap local data).
All of this for less than $500.
Take control of your communication needs and those of your team.
Ideal for tradies, subbies, forresters, farmers, trampers, hunters, fishers, truckers, cyclists
A powerful quad core rugged smartphone with extensive functionality. A solid build ensures that the phone can handle the rough outdoors and is resistant to the elements. The IP68 rating guarantees that the phone is dust tight and can be immersed in water. It also comes with a powerful LED flashlight to guide you after sunset and an SOS button for emergency situations. With a monster 4500mAh battery, you won’t run out of juice if the job runs overtime. It will deliver up to 10 hours of continuous talk time and over 150 hours on standby.
The rugged phone covers a wide range of networks: 2G (GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz), 3G (WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz) and 4G (FDD 800/1800/2100/2600MHz) — all of that on two simultaneously supported SIM cards. A large 5.5 inch screen will give you a great media experience and Android 5.1 operating system offers an easy-to-use interface and access to the Play Store. With Bluetooth 4.0, you also have smooth and stable connectivity with other devices.
With two cameras, 5MP front and 13MP back, you will always be able to snap nice landscape photos or take a quick selfie or two. You will have 16GB of internal storage space at your disposal + up to 64GB externally.
