Like most folks, we have a hard time going anywhere without bringing our smartphones along for the ride. And that’s usually not a problem. That is, until we find ourselves out on an adventure that’s potentially a risk to our delicate technology. You see, most smartphones can’t survive desert dust, raging rapids, or even an accidental drop. BLU’s Tank Xtreme 5.0, however, isn’t most smartphones.

Featuring a rugged rubberized frame, a display with Gorilla Glass 3, and an IP65 rating – this durable smartphone resists water, dust, and shocks better than devices with half the functionality. What functionality, you ask? Well, it’s equipped with Android’s Marshmallow 6.0 operating system, boasts a 720×1280 pixel HD display, and is powered by a 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor. As if that’s not enough, it also has a powerful 3,000mAh battery (over 50% more juice than an iPhone 7), a whole gig of RAM, 8 gigs of internal memory than can be expanded up to 64GB, and dual 5 megapixel cameras (front & rear). Honestly, at a price of just $130, this might be the best adventure-ready phone ever. [Purchase]
