Dear valued customers,

The last months and years have changed a lot - witihin china and the rest of the world. The pandemic has made shipping from china a risky undertaking. Not only have shipping costs risen to all time highs but it also is slower and more unreliable. More and more chinese brands want to sell their products by themselves and prohibit us to list them in our shop. The let the authorities confiscate parcels if their products are discovered. Regulations within china and also worldwide have changed so much we see no other choice as to stop doing business with consumers and only service resellers in the future.

Thanks for understanding and all the best!

Rugged Phones

Rugged smartphones are characterized by a particularly high resistance and are usually not only shock- and break-proof, but also waterproof. These mobile phones you will take to the mountains for a hike, to camp or if you work on a construction site. Compared to normal Chinese mobile phones, the robust outdoor devices are heavier and bulkier to withstand extreme conditions.

If the display glass of most ultra-thin high-end smartphones shatters after a drop from a low height, you don't need to be afraid with a rugged phone. The mobile devices are built and designed for extreme cases and still work even at very high or low temperatures, under water or in dusty and sandy conditions. Thanks to IP rating, the adventure smartphones are not only protected against water penetration, but also against dust particles and other foreign bodies.

These tough mobile phones do not need to hide from mid-range or even high-end smartphones. Devices from Doogee, Blackview, AGM, Oukitel or Conquest have dual SIM slots, huge batteries and high-resolution displays. Fingerprint sensors as well as unlocking via face recognition are now standard features too. Even features such as NFC, Qi Wireless Charging, walkie-talkie support or a built-in barometer can be found on board of high-quality rugged smart phones protected by rubber bumpers.
