Excalibur, 17 Jun 2020The notch destroyed this. Everything would have been ok. Yep I wanted it until I saw the notch/ hole punch
Techgeek91, 16 Jun 2020Why this type of phones dont come with a high end chipsetsKeep the cost down as much as possible, you're paying moreso for the ruggedness and the certifications it has
Own the s60 and can tell that it is a real tank!!!! bought the S95pro and had a real disappointment.Fast and good battery,camera great,nice design but wen it got wet......the speaker died!!!!!!!!!hell no ... replaced speaker but no guarantee if the phone is still waterproof...
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2020These people who dont care about security updates dont have anything linked with there phones.... moreYou're making assumptions with no stats or evidence to back it up, its easy to assume that people won't, I could assume that someone buys a big screen phone because they want to watch movies on it, that doesn't make me right, that statement doesn't represent the views of every person who buys a big screen phone, just as your whole statement has no merit when it comes what people do on whatever device..
Anyways I'm done with this topic.
But can you swap out batteries? I mean it is like when your on Everest taking selfies...you might want have the extra battery.
s4f786, 16 Jun 2020Security patches are there to patch exploits, exploits that people can use to gleam passwords,... moreThese people who dont care about security updates dont have anything linked with there phones. Dont do banking or use any debit cards or what ever linked to sites that have access from the phone. These people probably dont even know how to do it and if they do then they dont do it trough phone anyways
For the price, it's a pretty good deal actually. IMO, that is the coolest looking rugged phone I've seen yet. (I actually dig the eye shaped LEDs on the back). Specs are decent all around.
To those moaning about software updates. This phone isn't for you, so your priorities don't apply to it's targeted users. The target user for this phone is sports users who are looking for a rugged reliable phone that'll survive all kinds of damage & provide a dependable battery life. That is where it excels. That's about all it needs to do anyway.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2020just cause a phone dont have China brand on them, dont mean that the phone isnt made in china.... moreUpdates make your phone slower but not always. It depends on which brand phone and specs. Because it can make it faster too.

Anonymous, 16 Jun 2020Seems like that when you phone dont get security updates or android updates it's a brick from ... moreSecurity patches are there to patch exploits, exploits that people can use to gleam passwords, bank details, credit or debit card details, people care about this sort of stuff, so it's not about having "secret information", oh and your whole people don't care about OS updates and security updates, care to provide some actual stats or you just saying it because you don't care about it.
For a phone of this price the least the manufacturer can do is support it, there's phones for £100 pounds that get updated regularly with patches because it's a duty of care to their customers
This phone isn't going to appeal to everyone I accept that, and would suit people who have a job that physical, but that doesn't mean that your average won't want to get this, it's got a massive battery and won't break easily, for someone this will be a daily personal device, that personal wound expect the device to be supported to a certain extent.
-55 degree?? I guess it's good for people who stay in Antarctica...
I could see this as a nice adventure phone when you don't want to take your more fragile high end device out camping or boating. Or if you are prone to dropping your phone often.
