Fonerange Rugged Dual-Sim Android Smartphone first impressions
The mobile phone arrived the day after my order and was easy to set up although it needed a SIM card adapter for one of my SIM cards which was easily and cheaply purchased. This mobile phone is solidly built with plugs in it's earphone and charging sockets to prevent water ingress. It does what I want it to do but it does have limited onboard storage at 184MB but it can also take a 16GB MicroSD card. Bear in mind it is a mobile phone not a fully fledged tablet.
However, it does have GPS which is not mentioned in the technical specification. It also has a front and back camera with a flash on the back camera. The battery life is fairy good and the device can also be programmed to switch itself on and off which also helps to preserve battery life.
One item of important information missing from the user manual is the factory reset password which is - 1122.
As it also comes with a 2 year warranty it is a good purchase for someone who wants to retain some android features while having a mobile phone that can withstand the rigours of a work environment. As a motorist and cyclist it is handy to have a mobile with bluetooth connectivity for in the car and is waterproof when carried on a bicycle. The ability to use two separate SIM cards allows me to use 1 mobile phone for work and home use. This mobile phone was a good find as it solves many of my requirements all with one device.
The only reason for a 4 star rating instead of 5 stars is the limited on board storage which I believe should be at least 8GB in a modern mobile phone.
