There are several Rugged Smartphone options on the market, but the Elephone Soldier has come to stand out among the guys who enjoy an adventure but do not want to spend too much. The Elephone Soldier, therefore, has very useful tools for those who like to go to the “middle of the bush”. As well as being a robust device that can withstand falls, it has a real compass, sensors such as a thermometer and barometer and a 5000mAh battery. And the most interesting, its price, costs less than $200! So come with me to check out what the Elephone Soldier has to offer and there, in the end, I’ll give you the hint of where to buy it.
As expected in a rugged handset, the Elephone Soldier comes with many frames to ensure its strength. But compared to most of the full-bodied smartphones we’ve seen, the frames are not too thick. The materials used herein, therefore, are mostly metal and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). On the USB connection ports and on the headphones, we find rubber covers to ensure water tightness, as the device is IP68 certified.
Its LCD screen is Quad HD IPS 5.5 inches and has the resolution 2K or 2560 x 1440 pixels and 534 pixels per inch of density. Therefore, all the details on the screen should be clear and clear enough. And to ensure greater resistance of the screen, we find here the protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Inside the Elephone Soldier, we find a MediaTek Helio X25 (MT6797T) processor, 2.5 GHz core and 4 GB of RAM. And up to 64\128GB of internal storage, expandable via MicroSD up to 512 GB. We also have a generous 5000 mAh battery. Which is, therefore, able to withstand a lot of use time by having a low power processor.
In terms of photography, the Elephone Soldier stands out by presenting a powerful Sony rear sensor, the IMM220 Exmor RS of 21 MP, f / 2.2. And even without dual configuration, this camera ensures great photos in a variety of situations. Already on its front, we find another powerful sensor, which is the Samsung S5K3P3 16 MP. it’s therefore capable of capturing great photos and making his selfies always crisp and detailed.
In system management, we found Android 8 Oreo with some customizations. The manufacturer, however, does not make it clear if a blend of Android Pure is used with a few taps from its OS OS interface. But, the customizations that exist are actually user-friendly functions that serve to simplify your life through the use of the device in the day today.
The Elephone Soldier is pre-sold at the CooliCool store at $189.99, 4GB+64GB about 4GB+128GB Version $229.99, in black only. which will be valid from September 14. You can learn more about it on their Official ELEPHONE website.
