Legend has it that Nokia phones can survive a nuclear blast. That’s probably not true, but the company does make some of the most robust phones on the market. Their latest rugged retro communicator is the Nokia 800 Tough smartphone, and it’s a battle-tested beast.
The 800 Tough features a sleek, clean design and has an IP68 rating for dust- and water-resistance. It also complies with the MIL-STD-810G standard for drops and damage, allowing you to take this phone onto the field without having to worry about breaking it. The anti-slip smartphone with heavy-duty rubberized buttons runs KaiOS and has 512MB of RAM, 4GB storage, dual-SIM feature, 2-megapixel rear camera with flash, and a 2,100 mAh battery. And it has a Google Assistant button, in case you need some hands-free support. If you’re looking for a hardwearing iPhone alternative, the 800 Tough will suit you well. The phone is expected to drop in October and will cost around $120.
