RugGear RG730 (SIM Free / UK)
The RugGear RG730 at first appears to be an evolution of the previously popular RG700, but in fact it offers a great deal more. There are the usual increases in the speed of the processor and the amount of RAM, as you would expect. These improvements are, however, combined with refinements to the camera and the addition of Qi wireless charging giving you a significantly better phone overall.

Some phones are all about having the latest specification, instead the RugGear RG730 manages to combine updates in technology with the kind of protection you need when working on a building site, or other similarly challenging conditions.
To ensure the RG730 can deal with various conditions the military stand MIL-STD 810G has been used as the basis for its construction. This means that it is able to withstand drops of, up to, 2 metres on to concrete. It also means the phone can deal with extreme temperatures, barometric pressure, chemical spillages and vibration. In the case of temperature it has an operating range of -20 ºC to 60 ºC.
If you have cause to be concerned about water and dust when using your phone, there is no need to be with the RG730. It has an IP68 rating which means it is impervious to dust and can also be submerged in water to a depth of 2 metres for 30 minutes.
With a bright and clear 5” High Definition (1280 x 720 pixels) display, the RugGear RG730 is easy to use and perfect for viewing emails and other business related documents. It is also great for viewing photos and watching movies when you have time.
In adverse conditions it is all too easy for displays to be damaged. With the RG730, RugGear has taken this in to account and has given it protection in the form of a layer of Gorilla Glass 3. With this additional protection from a popular brand, known for their high standards, the chance of scratches and abrasions is significantly reduced.
The screen also has the useful ability that you can use it whilst wearing gloves, which is ideal when you are busy.
Having 4G/LTE connectivity is a great addition to the RugGear RG730, as it means you can browse and enjoy content rich websites instantly and download apps quickly. This gives you a more complete experience on the Internet.
If you are near a Wi-Fi hotspot, at home or whilst working, you will be able to take advantage of it, with the built-in Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Meamwhile the integration of Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC gives you the ability to easily connect to all your favourite accessories and make wireless payments.
The inclusion of a powerful 1.3GHz Quad-core processor and the version of Android means you can enjoy using the latest apps, and benefit from modern features. A generous 16GB of internal storage is also included, along with 2GB of RAM, which should be plenty for most needs. If, however, you need to increase the storage of the RG730 you can use, up to, 64GB memory cards with it.
The cameras on this phone are a big jump up from the ones seen on the previous RugGear RG700. The rear camera is now 13 MP, and the one on the front, for video calls, is 5MP. Additionally the rear camera has autofocus and a 4 x digital zoom.
A large capacity 3020mAh removable battery should keep you going through a whole day of work, and beyond. When you do need to charge it you can take advantage of the ability to use Qi Wireless Charging. This is ideal for building sites, as it means you can charge your phone without having to deal with plugging cables in (purchase of a separate Qi wireless charging plate is necessary).
If you like to keep your busines and personal calls separate an easy way is with dual SIM cards. This way you can give different numbers to your contacts. It is unusual for phones available in the UK to have this ability, but the RG730 does so you can install two SIM cards at the same time.
