In short, there is a simple answer to the above question: you. Smart phones are remarkably fragile considering their value, both economically and practically. The chances are that every individual who relies on a smart phone would be better off investing in a Rugged Phone. Not just those working in extreme environments: everyone. This couldnt be more true than for those in trades and professions where dust, water, pressure and impacts are a real everyday occurrence and threat to technology. For only a small additional investment beyond what you would pay anyway, you get peace of mind that youre not carrying around an easily damaged and easily breakable item that is your gateway to easy on-the-go communication.
For those with hobbies that include swimming, hunting, hiking, trekking, cycling, climbing or other outdoor pursuits, you might hesitate to take your phone with you. This poses a problem: right when it would be beneficial to ensure you have immediate ability to contact outside help, or use specialised mapping software, youre exposing something inherently breakable to a harsh environment. A rugged phone removes that problem from your equation. You can grab your phone, and go, knowing that its up to the job.
Then there are those whose working day is full of risks for a smart phone: dust, water, bangs, cold, to name just a few of the hazards that traditional smartphones just dont like. Builders, road construction workers, scaffolders, tree surgeons, plasterers, rangers, window cleaners: if your job involves the outdoors, dust, grime or water, then you need a more hardy and durable phone.
The rugged phone was designed for people exactly like this. People like you who lead busy, active and energetic lives that rely on a decent mobile phone and communication network, but who cant afford to lose time through broken or non-working technology. These phones are perfect for people whose lifestyles demand all of their equipment to be tough and hard-wearing, with no excuses for fragile phones. They are the smart phones of choice for the Now Generation.
Even if you get a tough phone wet, drop it from height, or put it in a freezer, its difficult to knock it down for good. These phones are built with a durability designed to stand tough against the very hazards you throw at it. They are designed with all of your work and lifestyle concerns in mind, so that you can go about your day, using your phone as you please, with no concern as to whether it is up to the job.
Their casings are solid. They are designed specifically against dust and water ingress. They have shatter-proof screens and jack and socket covers as standard. They tend to have longer battery lives. They allow all the functionality and efficiency you expect from a smartphone in a package that is considerably more hard-wearing.
In short, a rugged phone is the phone of the future: a phone that brings the technology we have all come to expect from our handset combined with the durability that real lives dictate. Tough phones such as these remove the frustration of fragile technology that costs again and again in terms of both money but also time. In our timepoor society, this is an incredibly valuable selling point. We know the technology can fit in to a tiny chip, now we need to know that it can actually fit in to our lifestyle in a practical, cost-effective way.
