Defender 2 Overview
The Defender 2 smartphone is a certified IP68 device which means it has been manufactured to resist both liquid and particle ingress to the highest level. The Defender 2's robust chassis has been engineered to withstand the harshest of impacts and drops, plus it also features a toughened screen that is scratch resistant. It is so tough that it has been certified as Military-Spec 810g rated.
Powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor, 2GB RAM and running Android 5.1 Lollipop the Defender 2 will be able to keep up with multitasking and you can be confident of a smooth experience.
Download your favourite applications from the Google Play store and customise your smartphone to your needs. The Defender 2 also comes pre-loaded with Toughphone’s SOS alert app and a selection of outdoor tools including Altimeter, Pedometer, Compass and more.
16GB of internal storage will give you plenty of room to store applications, all your photos, videos and music without the worrying of taking up all your memory space. However if you do happen to use up all that memory then there is a microSD card slot for memory expansion which supports up to 64GB, so plenty of room for your media files.
You can run two active SIM cards, simultaneously, with the Defender 2. This is great for people who work in areas that may have a poor signal on one network compared to home, or those that run a business with a separate number and need to be in contact at all times. Running your personal and business lines from the same device is extremely convenient; saving you time, space and hassle.
The Defender 2 benefits from Near Field Communication technology. NFC is commonly used around the world for anything from simple Bluetooth pairing to contactless payments in stores. NFC is also being used to help manage workforces and field engineers to ensure compliance and confirm physical locations in remote areas.
Push To Talk and Walkie Talkie are functions that are sure to please many, especially those workmen that require constant contact on a site, or rig, for instance. The Defender 2 comes with an external aerial that can be used for short to medium range RF communications. The PTT function is perfect for a team of individuals as they can all communicate on the same channel allowing everybody to stay connected.
The Defender 2 toughphone is the perfect answer for those that require a sturdy, robust and reliable smartphone but at the same don't wish to compromise on modern features.
