NUU Mobile R1 (SIM Free/UK)
Many modern smartphones have become increasingly fragile, with displays becoming larger and the thickness of the phone being slimmer. This means when the phone is dropped there is now more of a chance of your phone being damaged, particularly the display.
Rugged smartphones like the NUU Mobile R1, have been designed to withstand the occasional drop or impact that occur in daily life. So, you don’t have to worry about using them so much. The difference with the R1 is the price, as typically rugged phones have a higher price tag. In comparison, this phone is affordable and has the reassurance of a UK warranty and support.
It benefits from having Android 7.0, a 5-inch display and a generous 16GB of internal storage. There is also 4G/LTE connectivity and an 8MP main camera. Meaning you can interact with the latest data speeds and can take great photos.
UK Warranty & Support
As an emerging brand, you might be concerned about Nuu Mobile's credentials. Well, have no fear! The company is well established in the UK, as well as mainland Europe and the USA.
Nuu Mobile is committed to its operations in the UK and so offers a full 2-year service warranty on all their products. This includes a dedicated UK support team available 7 days a week on a local rate line. Hopefully you'll never need to use them, however, warranty replacements or repair services are available depending on the nature of any issue you may have.
SIM Free /Unlocked UK Stock
Provided without a SIM card and no contract or tariff with the phone, the NUU Mobile R1 is supplied factory unlocked.
This means you can use a SIM card from a network provider of your choice. The handset is branded only with the manufacturer's logos, in this case, NUU and no network branding.
The NUU Mobile has 2 x nano-sized SIM slots, making this a Dual SIM phone.
As such, it means you can have one or two SIMs in the phone at any one time. Use both a personal and work SIM card in the same phone or maybe a local and international SIM, the choice is yours. Or if you need only one SIM slot, leave the other empty.
This is a Hybrid SIM configuration, so if you wish to use a memory card the second SIM slot will be unavailable.
