There are a bunch of rugged phones in the market but the Nomu S30 stands out. It is not only IP68 certified but it also packs a massive 5000mAh battery, NFC and 4GB of RAM.
Nomu has been making rugged phones for almost a decade now but the Nomu S30 sets a new standard for rugged phones. It sports a 5.5″ Sharp FHD display, 64GB of storage, and is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core processor.
The main camera is a 16MP (interpolated) Sony IMX214 camera while you have a 5MP (8MP) shooter up front. That massive battery also supports Quick Charge 3.0.
Since the Nomu S30 is waterproof and shockproof, what better way to put it to test than by throwing it in a washing machine? Does it come out unscathed? You’ll have to see for yourself.
The Nomu S30 still has some other neat tricks under the hood too. It has glove mode support and also has a NXP smart PA module that lets it churn out louder sounds than its competitors.
You can grab the Nomu S30 here for less than $250. For that price, you get a rugged phone with dual SIM slots, dual band WiFi, alongside the other specs mentioned above.
