Dont get me wrong: im fond to this Kyo and love ruggeds: are great Whether you are running a small business or an international corporation: imo Ip68 smartphones are the future,,, buuuut, in this brands (kyo, sansumg, apple) make it so expensive to even consider it xP … honestly: check out brands as AGM their x1 is amazing but for 90 euros you can get a a2- thatagmdude.blogspot.com/2017/03/review-agm-a2-rio-rugged-ip68.html --- just look it up and will know what i am talking about ;) .
Great to see a toughphone / rugged device.
So much more durable and reliable, particularly if you're like me.
So many times I've dropped my phone and added more cracks to my screen.
But other than clumsiness, great for anyone out working in the field or any labour jobs.

no its not for them. its for the working professional who needs apps for work, to use in harsh environments (or really shitty weather) its for lumberjacks, farmers, sparky's, mudmen, mechanics - people that would otherwise have had their hardware wrecked by their working environment - not everything is must have lastest
Should have been Snapdragon 610 or 410, at least, 2 GB RAM. At least it has decent 720p res.
Testing Europe with entry level specs and no sapphire screen? This is one of the stupidest decision I have seen in years.
No word on the battery which is odd. Hopefully it will be extremely good.
I'm not at all sure that Sapphire would be a good idea, for such a large area....
Sure good for scratches, but it is a brittle material, so how would it take a hit by something???
E.g. a frontal drop onto an object lying on the ground, say a stone.
