Finally! A rugged phone with hardware we can actually use!

The idea of a rugged smartphone is great, it means you can use your phone and keep in contact even when climbing frozen water falls or simply strolling the rain, the issue we have had with them (till now) is their terrible specs! Thank goodness for the Green Orange T1!

Green Orange, some of you might remember, aren’t quite as well-known as other phone companies, but those of us who have come across them have seen the great design and build they are capable off.

Usually Green Orange make high-end phones with slender alloy bodies which run their own custom UI. The new Green Orange T1 is a departure from this as it’s their first rugged, rubber phone, and possibly the only outdoors smartphone I would actually be happy to buy.

Usually rugged phones like this get dire specs! Anything from 512mb RAM to a single processor with 2 mega-pixel cameras. Even the very worst of them still cost a small fortune though and are simple not worth buying.

Green Orange have seen the gap in the market and have taken after it with the T1. The body of the phone has that similar rubber look which is easy to grip with wet, muddy hands and will go some way to protect the phone if dropped.

We’re not sure how rugged the phone will be, but performance is something else with an Antutu benchmark of 42.062! Green Orange have used 2GB RAM and a 64bit LTE MT6752 chip to get that score.

What remains to be seen is the price, the durability and availability, but so far so good!

    Like you said Andi, looks good so far… If everything else is good then it should sell like hot cakes to builders/tradesmen etc…

    An IP67 rating for protective housing against water and dust is quite nice, but what I’m really interested in (from my professional p.o.v.), is a smart phone with decent specs and ATEX approval. The only option for sale so far, is an android 4.1 phone with clunky body (can’t avoid that unfortunately), tiny 3.2″ screen (can’t improve that much either), and a retail price of € 1300 / US$ 1600 + VAT…Ka-cheng!

    This is perfect for my dad! The reason he still uses a flip hone is that he keeps breaking any phone without a durable construction at work.
