When you work a manual labor job, you need a smartphone that can handle the ups and downs of your day. Communication is a vital aspect of the job of construction workers, and your smartphone (just like you) should be able to perform under extreme conditions.
A tough outer shell of a case and a little water resistance is no longer enough versatility for your smartphone to remain functional through it all. Today’s designers know the tough demands of the job, and they have certainly stepped up to the plate.
Here is a brief look into some of the most durable and capable smartphones on the market today. Consider which device might best fit your particularly “messy” work environment.
Doogee may not be the most well-known phone maker, but they make a durable and quality product. The DOOGEE S90 is heavy duty with a titanium alloy build and a rubberized body. It has a huge screen (comparatively) with 6.18 inches of display, and has a battery that will last for days.
The coolest thing about the DOOGEE S90 is that it is just as flexible in use and look as the best big named smartphones on the market. You can be onsite ordering a modular integrated flow system to replace your broken down pumping system, while checking your Facebook, and sending an email.
Your cell phone better be tough enough to handle the job when it bears the name of CAT on the case. For a company typically applauded for its construction equipment, CAT hit technology out of the ballpark with the CAT S61.
If you’re lucky enough to grab up one of these phones (for $1000), then you’ll be delighted to know that it can handle a range of different impacts. The CAT S61 can also sit submerged in water for over an hour without suffering damage.
Land Rover Explore
The Land Rover Explore is more than capable of handling your workplace. It come equipped with a 4,000mAh battery, but adding the Adventure mod to your package will amp the battery power another 3,600mAh. The boost also adds a GPS boost, so you’ll be assured that your directional services will work, no matter where you find yourself.
The Land Rover Explore was designed to take on the “less than civilized” part of your adventures, and the ViewRanger app adds even more capabilities to the device. You’ll have barometric data, a compass, and a distance recorder.
Breaking this phone would be a challenge even if your intentions were to break it. It features a sapphire screen, which has been categorized by designers to be even stronger than gorilla glass.
The Kyocera Brigadier meets all of the standards for being nearly indestructible, or at least as far as the U.S. Department of Defense military standard states. It can withstand shock, vibration, impact, extreme temperatures, and water immersion.
