The DeWalt Phone (SIM Free/UK)

The DeWalt Phone SIM Free UKIn the past few years, rugged smartphones have changed from being a relative niche market with poor choice, into an area with a large number of interesting brands and products to decide on.

The DeWalt Phone looks to be a modern and capable smartphone, technically on par with mid- to high-end consumer devices from Samsung, Sony, LG and Apple, but with a level of built in protection that makes it suitable for deployment in a number of adverse conditions.

SIM Free /Unlocked UK Stock

Clove Technology pride ourselves on providing UK-specification SIM free/unlocked phones, directly from the manufacturer and their preferred UK supply chain. The DeWalt Phone is no exception to this rule.

This is a dual SIM (standby) enabled smartphone. You can run two SIM cards on the phone at the same time, useful for keeping work and personal numbers separate but active, or perhaps having a backup network in place for if you travel regularly and network signal changes.

The DeWalt Phone is certified for use on all UK and European networks, as well as compatible EMEA regions.

For 4G / LTE support outside of Europe, please check the phone specifications against your local operator's frequency provisions.

Overview

DeWalt Phone MuddyGone are the days when needing a rugged device suitable for deployment meant spending thousands on products that were simply functional - often running outdated operating systems and lacking in processing power.

The DeWalt Phone has an internal specification that matches up to many of the powerful consumer Android smartphones. A quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and an updated Android 5.1.1 operating system will make the phone familiar and capable to workers who may use high-end consumer electronics personally.

This is coupled with a number of recent developments from the smartphone market that allow the DeWalt Phone to be used for some niche applications.

The screen has been calibrated and software included to make the phone responsive to touch even when wearing gloves

Rugged Design - MIL810G

First things first, a rugged phone isn't much good if it can't withstand a few knocks.

The DeWalt Phone has been tested to withstand repeated drops to concrete from 2 metres, alongside extreme temperatures (-20°C to 60°C) and pressures, as well as being resistant to several chemical spillages and vibrations.

The unit is also certified as IP68 so is fully resistant to ingress from dust or particles and tested waterproof to a depth of 2 metres for 30 minutes.

The edges of the DeWalt Phone are rubberised to act as shock absorbers in the event of falls or knocks, dissipating impact forces and also giving a small degree of bounce if dropped to a hard surface.

Thick covers seal off the micro USB charging port and headphone jack to retain the IP rating. These can also remain closed for added protection due to both Qi wireless charging technology, wireless audio via Bluetooth and wireless audio/video streaming via Google's Cast protocols (external Google Cast app required from Google Play).

Connectivity

DeWalt Phone ConnectivityAs a modern smartphone, the DeWalt Phone has a number of wireless connectivity options.

Alongside high-speed 4G/LTE data connectivity, there is also the following:

  • Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • GPS (with GLONASS support)
  • NFC for data collection and contactless communication / payments
  • Qi wireless charging
  • FM radio receiver

Several sensors are also in place including a G-Sensor, Gyroscope, Pressure sensor, Magnetic / Compass, Light and range sensors.

Some of these can be accessed via built-in apps, and all can be accessed by third parties or your own bespoke applications.

Dual SIM

This is a dual SIM (standby) enabled smartphone. You can run two SIM cards on the phone at the same time, useful for keeping work and personal numbers separate but active, or perhaps having a backup network in place for if you travel regularly and network signal changes.

Both SIM slots are enabled for 3G / 4G mobile data, although only one can be used for data at any time. So if SIM1 has data turned on, SIM2 can only be used for voice & text (2G) and vice-versa.

If a phone call is being taken on one of the two SIM cards, the other SIM card will be put on standby. Calls to the second SIM will be put to voicemail (if enabled) and text messages will be queued and received after the call on SIM1 is ended.
