NOMU S30 Drop Test – Will it survive? (Video)


NOMU s30

NOMU — the Chinese brand specialized in making rugged phones — has been growing in the market thanks to their handsets that can withstand scratches, bumps, extremely low and high temperatures. In addition to that, their phones are also water and dust proof to better protect the phone from external environments.

NOMU’s latest device to hit the market is the NOMU S30. A rugged phone with IP68 rating and an extremely tough outer shell, as you’ll soon seen in the video below. It survived a fall from 1.2 meters without any damage, the test doesn’t stop there, though. Let’s have a look!

    I have read users reviews and most of them found s30 as “difficult to recommend.” … it was just matter of time until any other brand (in this case agm) released something better. Sorry 🙁 but thanks for the note!

    I think the best rugged smartphone is BV7000 Pro.

      Yeah, BV7000 Pro is all good, except the small battery,3000mAh and the chip set. Hope BV can release large battery phone. Love it.
