The smartphone market with increased resistance continues to grow. However, it dominated the niche brand, often dealing with electronics so far. So what you should buy if you are looking for such a device? I chose the 10 most interesting resistant phones.
Kruger & Matz DRIVE 4
DRIVE Line is now in its fourth generation, but only from the third we had to deal with devices with increased strength. DRIVE 4 is a smartphone with good components, comparable to multiple devices from mid-range. 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 410, 1 GB of RAM and Android 5.1 Lollipop is the most important characteristics.Housing DRIVE 4 is made of a mixture of plastic and rubber, and the screen cover glass Dragontrail. The design meets IP67 standard, which ensures that the phone will survive unscathed immersion in water to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. The device seems to be an interesting proposition, and now can be purchased for about 900 zł. It should also check the previous edition, which we even had a chance to test.
CAT S40 / S50
Catepillar (CAT for short) to the company producing construction machinery and industrial engines. Recently, in its offer also includes special-resistant phones to constitute a piece of equipment construction workers and industrial plants. Top models in the products of this manufacturer are S40 and S50. This first visited last year in our editorial.Both devices are based on Qualcomm circuits (S40 – Snapdragon 210, S50 – Snapdragon 400) and specifications are typical representatives of the middle shelf of 2015. Cases of mobile elements made of aluminum, rubber and plastic. Both comply with IP67 and the screens cover glass Gorilla Glass. CAT is a company you can trust as the manufacturer of this type of equipment, the problem can only be the price, which in comparison with the proposals of other brands is quite prohibitive. S40 costs around 1,500 zlotys, and S50 – 1700 zł.
GOCLEVER Quantum 2 500 Rugged
Model of Goclever to the most recent item in my statement. The phone made its debut earlier this year and in terms of specifications the difference is really noticeable. Quantum 2 500 Rugged based on MediaTek 6735P processor, has 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera and a 5-inch HD IPS. The most interesting, however, are the facts about the battery – it has a capacity of up to 5000 mAh and function powerbanku!The housing is of course enhanced, mostly made of rubber. The manufacturer declares compliance with IP65, so the device is not waterproof, but only withstand strong splash (according to the official scale protection against jet water (12.5 l / min) a cast on the cover of any page). The display is covered with a protective glass production unknown, but with a substantial thickness of 2.8 mm. One of the biggest advantages of this equipment is its price, which is about 750-800 zł, what the competition is very bargain amount.
myPhone Hammer AXE 3G / LTE
Series myPhone Hammer is one of the most popular lines resistant products in our market. It includes both simple phones and smartphones quite interesting. The latter will be the model Hammer AXE, which is available in two versions: 3G and LTE.The devices, in addition to the data transmission standards differ from each other specifications, and also in many aspects. For details invite you to a full review of both devices – here just mention that the 3G model is weaker and it can be compared to the first two positions in our rankings, and the version of LTE equipment is more similar to the proposal Goclever. Mobile, any version of the same protected and reinforced, made of rubber and plastic casing. It is certified IP68 and therefore must withstand immersion in water deeper than 1 meter, without specifically limited time limit. In our review thoroughly checked the manufacturer's promises – that the effects
Samsung Galaxy S5 / S6 Active
Samsung S Series (with a note Active) is by far the most 'swanky' device with my statement. The most interesting is of course the model S6, but unfortunately it is not available on our market so go straight to S5. And this is already on his neck years (exactly two), but still worth it interesting. Why? Because it's a full-fledged, robust smartphone with top shelf, dressed in a nice case with increased resistance. In technical terms, it's almost exactly the same device as normal S5.When it comes to special features, is a solid, rubber-plastic cover of the phone meets the standard resistance to shocks and falls MIL-STD-810. In addition, we also have a resistance to dust and water immersion up to 1 meter IP67, however, exactly the same guarantees civil S-five. It is a pity that now there is quite a big problem with the availability of this model and you need a lot of naszukać to find new hardware. Still this is not impossible, and an additional reward for patience is an attractive price, which usually is about 1200 zł.
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3
With the availability there is no problem for this model Galaxy Xcover 3, which is also worth noting. The device has components for classification to a typical mid-range. This refers to the system Snapdragon 410, 1.5 GB of RAM and a 4.5-inch screen PLS. On board there is, of course, Android (English version, officially 4.4) with TouchWiz overlay.In terms of resistance equipment persists model S5 Active. The smartphone also meets the standards of MIL-STD-810G and IP67, so it is difficult to annihilation. The manufacturer declares that the phone can withstand a fall from a height of 1.8 meters to concrete and can work in temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius. Price model of free market ranges between 700 and 800 zł.
Overmax Vertis Braver
Overmax also has in its offer smartphone with increased resistance. It is one of the weakest devices in my statement, if we consider the components. 4-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 480×854, 2-core processor and Android 4.2 MTK6572A not overthrow to his knees, but the main advantages of the phone are, however, very high resistance and low price.strength ensures high standard IP68, the manufacturer ensures that the phone is able to get out of almost any conditions unscathed. For equipment now we have to pay a little over 500 zł.
But maybe the phone?
All of the above suggestions are distinguished by a higher resistance to external factors than regular smartphones. Still, for many, they may be too fragile – it's complicated equipment and is very difficult to provide them with complete invulnerability. Besides, in a truly demanding conditions who would have the patience to play with touch screen? So if matters to you most of all life, and you can let go of it at the expense of access to Facebook, select the phone, not a smartphone. The market is also not lacking, here are some examples.
myPhone Hammer Plus
Simple, tough, and for that cheap. This is myPhone Hammer Plus – test some time ago we published on gsmManiaKu. The device does not have many features: actually you can just call him and send messages. But thanks to a very robust, and this costs only about 150 zł. See for yourself how copes with adversity
Another tough little complicated, this time from Catepiller. His body, like Hammer Plus meets the IP67 standard, but it seems to be even more armor. In technical terms, the phone does not offer anything more than calling and sending messages. For this model, we now have to pay a bit more than the Hammer, but still relatively not much, because about 200 zł.
