Heavy Duty Cell Phones That Can Take Whatever You Throw at Them


How tough is your phone? If you compared it to one of our heavy-duty cell phones, would it still hold up, or would you need to reconsider your purchase? Newer phones may be packed with features and the latest technology, but they also tend to be very expensive and surprisingly flimsy. Accepting that your phone will break or that the screen will crack is ingrained into the mindset of every phone owner. Some of us take great care to look after our phones in an attempt to make them last longer, but there are also those individuals who do not have the luxury of paying attention to their phones and potential external stressors (that can damage phones) at all hours of the day. Sometimes, it’s better to just have a phone that can take whatever you can throw at it.



Most of our heavy-duty phones have an IP rating of 68, meaning they are dust-proof and waterproof. While we don’t really recommend giving your phone a sand bath or giving it to your child to play submarines in the bath with, we can guarantee that your Blackview rugged smartphone was built to withstand these conditions and more. In this article, we will compare a few of our heavy-duty cell phones to show you that they are more than capable of serving as decent smartphones and are not just bricks encased in rubber.


A Comparison of Blackview’s Rugged Phones


For the sake of this comparison, we will organise the phones based on their model and price point. The first one on the list will be on the lower end of the phone specification spectrum (and thus cheaper), while the last one will be on the higher end (and thus more expensive). The mid-range phone will provide additional context in terms of features and pricing. All the phones listed below use the Doke OS 3.0 operating system, which was built on the robust Android 12. They also all feature IPS panels for a crystal-clear viewing experience.
