Tough, rugged phones

If you work outdoors or lead an active lifestyle, you need a hard-working phone that can keep up with you.

It can be tough for your phone to withstand the occasional knocks and blows a busy lifestyle brings. But if you’re after a device that can take on demanding conditions and deal with water, dust, heat and drops, these are the kind of features which you should look for.

Tough phones for outdoors

If you work outdoors frequently, you may need a phone which can take a tumble and carry on getting the job done. Tough phone cases are a great idea – but you may feel more confident with a rugged phone featuring built-in protection. Phones like the Cat B35 come with a durable rubber and plastic shell which can even handle six-foot falls onto concrete. It also has several soft horizontal grooves set into the rubber casing, so you can keep a firm grip while you’re making calls and sending texts.

Waterproof phones

Phones and water have never been the best of friends, but now there are phones which can handle the odd splash. The Cat B35 is waterproof up to depths of 1.2m for up to 35 minutes, so even if it takes a tumble in the bath, the pool, or a puddle, you’ll still be able to use it as usual.

Dust and heat resistant

Dusty, hot conditions can play havoc with mobile phones. If you frequently work outdoors or in hot countries, you’ll need a phone with a well-sealed exterior to cope with sand, dirt and dust. The Cat B35 is dustproof, so if it gets a bit grubby, you can clean it easily with a damp cloth. It’s also resistant to extreme temperatures, so if you leave it in your van or car during a heatwave, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Easy-to-use buttons

It can be tricky to text on a keypad when your hands are cold, or you’re wearing gloves. However, the Cat B35’s keypad is well-spaced, and the rubber finish on the buttons means your finger won’t slip or slide when you’re making an important call. Plus, the buttons are backlit, so if you’re working late at night or in the early morning, you’ll still easily be able to see what you’re doing.

Long-lasting battery life

Whether you’re waiting for a call or checking an order is on its way, a powerful battery is vital when you’re away from home. The Cat B35 comes with a powerful 2,300mAh battery, up to 12 hours talk time and 30 days of standby time. Even if you spend most of the day making calls and sending texts, the Cat B35’s battery will be able to keep up with your busy lifestyle.

Apps and features to stay on track

Just because your phone is built to last doesn’t mean you should compromise on the features you love. The Cat B35 comes pre-loaded with Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Search. You can also stay in touch with friends and family on your favourite apps – Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp are available from the KaiStore. Finally, if you’re worried about having sensitive information on your phone, or losing it, you can set up the Cat B35’s anti-theft remote lock and erase features for peace of mind.
