Phones have become one of the necessities of modern life. They’re also one of the most delicate parts of modern life, with screens cracking and components breaking throughout the course of regular life. And if your life is a bit more rugged and rough than the average lifestyle out there, then you can forget about keeping your phone looking nice and working right. For that kind of abuse you need the Nokia 800 Tough.
The Nokia 800 Tough phone is built to live up to its name. With other phones you have to be nearly hydrophobic, but the 800 Tough can take on even extremely wet conditions thanks to its ability to withstand being submerged up to 1.5 meters deep in water for up to 30 minutes at a time. You also don’t have to worry about dust and sand as it’s dust proof to boot.
Let’s see, water and dust proof, but what about the ultimate test? Can it survive a fall? The Nokia 800 Tough can take a tumble from as high as 1.8 meters onto a hard surface, like concrete. That means you won’t have to hesitate when someone asks you to toss them your phone. And no need to worry about butterfingers as it features an anti-slip grip. Nokia Tough also meets military standards. It’s MIL-STD-810G compliance means that it can take on the meanest environments, from temperatures ranging from -20 C to +55 C.
The Nokia 800 Tough is also a pretty smart phone as well. It features 4G LTE connectivity for better coverage and comes with preloaded apps. Bigger buttons make it easier to access those features as well. The built-in 2-megapixel rear camera and LED flash lets you take whatever picture you need to capture, and the flashlight offers 198 lumens to lighten up any situation. Finally, the battery will keep you powered for days—literally.
The 800 Tough has 43 days of standby time on a single charge.
In other words, this phone is exactly what its name suggests—tough.
