Proper tough phone
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:46:58 pm »
Any recommendations for a proper tough phone not some expensive smart phone that's a bit tough. Would use for light internet use, mainly YACF obviously but I'm not a heavy data user and rarely watch videos online.

Ability to use WhatsApp as well would be good

Other then that it needs to be tough and very water resistant

Thanks

I don't really think that 'internet use' and 'properly rugged' are compatible.

As soon as you put a screen that is capable of internet navigation on a device, the device is vulnerable.
I have a water resistant (to being submerged standard) phone. The screen is still vulnerable to bangs and bumps. Any phone with a touchscreen is going to be vulnerable.

Phones that had buttons were physically tough and stood up to drops, but gummed up.

Pick the phone of your choice and put an Otterbox Defender case and a Mr. Shield screen protector on it.
