Let the smartphones show off their macho-ness!
Let’s face it. It is not always easy to keep smartphones safe. In the spur of the moment, they can fall off a cliff and hit the bottom of the valley and completely crack open. It may even fall out of your pocket while you are jogging and you step right on the face, costing you hundreds of dollars to fix the touchscreen.
Yes, while some treat their smartphones like their babies, there are others who put it through torture without realizing it. So for those people, here’s a list of potential choices for them not to feel so guilty torturing them.
These are tested for their extra reliable durability – a combination of IP67 or IP69 and MIL810G (military standard) to withstand any kind of hit.
