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.

Water and dust-resistant design

A testament to the phone's protection against the elements is its certified status with IP67 waterproof standards. An IP rating is a measure of the 'Ingress Protection', composed of two numbers - the first referring to the protection against solid objects and the second against liquids. The higher the number, the better the protection. The ratings of 6 and 7 respectively are the highest and second highest scores possible, which should reassure you that this mobile is completely self-protected against the effect of immersion in water up to a depth of 1m (3.3 ft) for up to 30 minutes.

Shock proof and incredibly durable against impact damage

Designed with an industrial strength casing, the Rugged Dual-Sim Android Smartphone can withstand impacts when dropped from up to 2m in height.  During this drop, the phone will be fully dust and shock proof - making it ideal for anyone in the construction industry or for those who lead an outdoor life that takes their mobile phone through an extreme existence.

Dual SIM Feature

Dual SIM holders increase coverage, use and convenience.

Multiple services with one phone enable you to use a single device for both business and personal use.  With both SIMs in standby mode, you can receive a call to either SIM card on the one phone, reducing the number of items to carry around with you.  

Another benefit of the Dual SIM is that you can have a SIM card for a different country within the smartphone, so you can contact people abroad for the correct costs using the same phone as you use at home!

With WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G connectivity and Dual SIM ports enabling you to handle 2 lines in one mobile - this smartphone really could save your life!
