Can Nomu S30 survive a 100-feet drop?


Nomu brand is starting to carve a name for themselves lately and their rugged lineup is nothing to scoff at. We have already seen few stress and destruction tests for the flasghip Nomu S30 model, but today we have something extra for you.

In the video Nomu S30 is tied together with 9 soda cans and thrown against a concrete floor from a 100-feet height. All of the soda cans are just blasted away in the test, but the phone itself remains intact, just splashed with a little bit of sweet soft drinks from the destroyed cans. Not a bad showing for the rugged warrior.

Nomu S30 has a very tough body with IP68 certification rating, 5,5-inch display with FullHD resolution protected by Gorilla Glass 4, octa-core MT6755 processor, 13 Mpix rear + 5 Mpix front cameras, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB of storage, 5000 mAh battery capacity with fast charging support and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Cheapest one from the Nomu lineup is the S10 model, which is surely among the most cost-effective IP68 rugged phones in the market. It carries MT6737T quad-core chip with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB ROM and the same 5000 mAh battery. You can get it right now for $115 in this particular Aliexpress store and if Nomu brand seems interesting to you then keep checking their official Facebook page for latest updates.

    The Nomu S30 could be a good rugged smartphone. But in its ROM it uses an unsecure kernel and the ROM itself is not pure Android 6.0. It is a “developer test build” and therfore “SafetyNet” and Android Pay are not working. Also not Pokemon Go.
    Nomu still did not offer a solution for that. They only post stupid videos.
    Therfore – no option to buy.
