Earthquake Proof Cell Phone


We’ve heard some bold claims over the years, but a mobile phone that can withstand the power of an earthquake!? That’s got to be right up there with … I don’t …. With, oh ‘We own the trade mark for iPad so give us 10 Billion Yuan’.
Despite the rather optimistic claim, this phone made by ZTC does look rather robust. There’s a thick rubber body which should protect it from knocks and falls, the battery cover is attached by 2 screws and is sealed to keep dust and water out and the screen is an anti-glare scratch proof item.
There’s also a heavy duty looking speaker on the back of the phone making it easy to hear on a construction site or while hiking near a loud waterfall.
Other nice features for the outdoors bound are the rubber covered USB and charger sockets and a built in flash light plus laser pointer (although we’re not sure why you’d need the laser pointer).
Underneath it’s tough exterior is your basic dual sim phone with 2 mega-pixel camera and a space for a micro SD card.
It’s a shame that a phone designed to be rugged and used outdoors fails to have GPS, but ZTC say the phone was designed to be affordable and GPS would have hiked up pricing.
