Being tough is what the RugGear RG600 is all about, but it combines this with some good specifications to produce a great phone. Since it benefits from having a powerful 1.3GHz processor and a large 4.5” display, the latter protected with toughened glass.
What this means it that it is the ideal phone to take with you into the outdoors whether you are someone who works outside, or simply enjoys being in the countryside. It is also good for anyone who works within dusty environments, or where water spillages are a real risk.
The reason why the RG600 is so good for these situations is that it has an ingress protection rating of IP 68, and has been designed to conform with military standard MIL-STD 810G. What this means in the case of the IP rating is the phone is waterproof to depths of 2 metres for 30 minutes and is completely impervious to dust.
The military standard deals with the other robust features of the phone, including the ability to drop it, up to 2 metres, onto concrete, or deal with extreme temperatures -20° C to 60° C and varying barometric pressure. It also ensures the phone can cope with excessive vibration and some chemical spillages. This is why the RG600 is so tough and able to deal with anything you area able to.
But it isn’t enough for a phone to just be tough, it also needs to be able to use the latest apps and features you need to use at work, or when you are enjoying the outdoors. To ensure this is possible RugGear has given the RG600 a powerful 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, and has supplemented this with 1GB RAM and internal storage of 4GB. If there isn’t sufficient storage available you can add to this with a microSD card, up to 32GB ones can be used with this phone.
A bright 4.5” display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels gives you the ability to enjoy photos, and makes it east to navigate to all the features and benefits of this phone. For additional protection the display has a layer of toughen glass, so scratches and minor impacts will not cause any problems.
Dual cameras give you the ability to take great quality photos whether you are taking a quick snap of yourself, or some scenery. On the back there is an 8MP camera, and on the front is a 5MP one. The latter is perfect for when you need to make video call, or take a photo of yourself.
The inclusion of the Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) means you have access to all the latest features and can benefit and enjoy from using the latest apps. You will find multi-tasking is faster, managing calls is easier with a smarter caller ID and voice searches are better with “Ok Google”.
In addition to these great features you have Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth available along with 3G connectivity. This means you will be able to stay in contact and, with the dual SIM card capability, you will be able to manage you calls like never before and separate work and home life. There is also a 3600 mAh battery which RugGear estimates will give you up to 450 hours talk-time, meaning you can use the phone without any restrictions.
