New outdoor phone brands are not something we see every day even in China. Few months ago we got a new player with Vphone brand and aside the extremely unoriginal name it’s not looking bad.
They introduced right away a rugged model Vphone X3 with several protection certifications including the military US standard MIL-STD 810G and IP68.
Vphone X3 features 5,5-inch HD display, MT6753 processor paired with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage and 4500 mAh battery. The 13 Mpix rear and 5 Mpix front cams should be capable of taking underwater shots due to the water resistant certifications. The phone is dual SIM and supports LTE on bands 1/3/7/20 and of course has integrated GPS and A-GPS. The dimensions of this armored beast are 166.3x85x14.7mm while weighing 230g.
The company also promises some fitness functions integrated in the phone like heart rate sensor, blood pressure sensor or a pedometer. Powerful lantern function or an SOS button are also present.
In the video the Vphone X3 is subjected to various stress tests pushing the limits of its certifications to the maximum. So you can see the waterproof and dustproof tests, smashing nutshells with the display or even surviving being drilled in.
