Sturdy Screen


Also, putting it up there with the top-notch rugged smartphones is the screen design. The extra thick glass screen is placed lower than the frame sides, helping to protect against cracks and breakage associated with drops and bumps. The 5,7-inch screen has a ratio of 18:9.


Reverse Charge and Long-Life Battery


Outdoor adventures often mean being far from charge points. With the BV4900 reverse charge, you can charge your friend’s phone in the middle of the bush.

You can immerse it in water up to a depth of 1,5 metres for as long as 30 minutes, drop it from a height of 1,5 metres, and leave it in a dust-filled environment – and it will work great. The handset has extra bump protection with its enforced corners and thickened screen glass and has been plated for a harder and stronger frame.


Unique Design


Even the design is reason enough to buy this handset. The capsule look has been inspired by space equipment. The design is in tribute to Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space.
