The best rugged phones, Kyocera Duraforce

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.

Wireless City offers an assortment of rugged phones, in a variety of form factors, including the Kyocera Duraforce.

The Kyocera DuraForce ($50 on 2-year plan) was built to withstand inclement weather, water submersion, dust and sand, drops and knocks, and whatever else you might put it through as it’s rated IPX5, IPX6 and IPX8 for waterproof and dustproof operation.

Even if you’re using safety gloves, you can tap and swipe on the 4.5-inch display, plus there are dedicated hard keys for Android navigation, a loud speakerphone, and it supports TELUS Link’s Push-To-Talk (PTT) feature with a dedicated walkie-talkie-like button on the side.

Other features of the Kyocera DuraForce include a powerful all-day battery (3,100 mAh), dual cameras (8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front), and Snapdragon 400 processor (with 1.4GHz quad-core CPU) for speedy performance.
