The Best Rugged Phones for teens
CLICK ON PHONE IMAGES FOR MORE DETAILS AND VIDEOS
We all know how how rough kids and teens can be on phones. An ordinary smartphone from the big telcos with enough features to avoid embarrassment in the schoolyard will set you back $599-$999, but teens break them easily - one who shall remain nameless went through a phone every four months!
For less than $799, choose one of these endurance phones. Both the AGM and Blackview models are ideal for school students, for different reasons. Kids spend huge amounts of time 'on screen', with the potential for causing excessive eye damage by the time they are 30. Both models offer "night mode" to reduce harsh glare. The Blackview has the extra protection of a Blue Light filter that reduces dangerous blue light emissions. You are protecting your child's eyesight.
In the unlikely event that your child succeeds in smashing a Blackview it is easy and much cheaper to repair than a big brand telco phone.
The AGM appeals to teens because it looks like a slim phone not a rugged phone, but it is tough. It is ideal for city kids as an urban rugged phone.
If you only want a basic dumbphone for your child, the Kidsafe Watch works on 2Degrees and Vodafone for calls and texts to parentally approved numbers and is trackable using an app.

What our customers are saying...
It's not something we shout about, but we've been in the mobile phone business for a very long time. Investigate's smartphone division is run by Ian and Heidi Wishart; Heidi's background in telecommunications for Bellsouth Mobile and Clear, and Ian's connection to the establishment of NZ's first mobile phone network (Telecom 025) proved invaluable when the couple began operating a Vodafone affiliate in 1999. Since then we've sold a wide range of phones and tablets to clients all over NZ. Today, we specialise in providing handsets that work on ALL the networks - Spark, Vodafone and 2Degrees, giving you options you can't get from the telcos' own stores. All phones come with a 12 month genuine NZ service warranty (not a 'we'll send it to China and call you in three months' warranty), and our prices include GST for tax deductibility for business use.
