The best rugged phones, Sonim XP7

Whether you work in the field, spend time on the road, or are just one of those klutzy types, many of today’s devices are designed for those who require tougher tech.

And we’re not just talking smartphones that can withstand bumps, knocks and drops, but they must also be able to handle Canada’s varying temperatures throughout the year – from sweltering summers to teeth-chattering winters, and everything in between. Rugged phones are also waterproof in case it rains, snows, or is dropped in liquid for a short period of time.

These durable devices also let you conduct your business wherever that may be, whether it’s an extra loud speaker so you can hear your coworkers while working near machinery, touchscreens that work with thick gloves, or a handy Push-To-Talk button on the side for TELUS Link, a walkie-talkie-like feature, for effortless communication.
