In this everchanging, regenerative world, smartphone technology has become a rapid phenomenon that has altered the face of communication and connectivity. To date, there are 7.76 billion people who currently possess a cellular device. However, almost two thirds of workers (65%) are using a damaged phone. Not only is this inconvenient, but it is also unreliable when you are dependent on a device for business productivity. This is where the solutions to replace or protect consumer phones with rugged technology are highly misconstrued.
“The term rugged is associated with a larger, bulkier and unconventional handheld device.”
Many customers want a smartphone that is visually appealing. The sleek look of consumer phones are considered to be easier to handle in a working environment as they have a familiar interface for quick access.
It is also believed that the alternative, which uses the term “rugged”, is associated with a larger, bulkier and unconventional handheld device. This may have been partially true in the past, but in recent years the newer generation of rugged devices have reformed to match the visual appeal of consumer phones yet deliver high quality protection and performance to suit demanding industries.
“A case is rugged enough and will protect the phone from any harm.
Hard cases and screen protectors are promoted to entice business customers into believing that this is all the protection their smartphone will require. This sparks the oldest myth that a case is rugged enough and will protect the phone from any harm.
To reinstate the truth, there is no phone accessory at this time available that can 100% shield a device from damage or environmental factors. Unlike consumer phones and cases, a rugged phone is military certified and element proof. It is also an excellent choice for frontline workers who wear gloves for protection, as the touch sensitivity enables full responsivity and navigation without the need of glove removal.
“Rugged phones are too expensive to own.”
There was once a time when rugged phones landed on the market with a high price tag. But recently the value has considerably decreased to lessen the gap between rugged and consumer phones. In frontline positions, phones are incessantly at risk of breakage. A rugged phone on the other hand has built-in protection that is proficient enough to survive in the harshest of environments. In fact, it is more costly to own a consumer phone due to damage and the constant need to replace parts than it is to own a rugged phone.
“The battery life of rugged phones is borderline untrustworthy.”
In recent years, technology companies have made it a key priority to improve the battery life of their products. As consumer phones are just about catching up, rugged handheld devices have always remained one step ahead, shattering the myth that the battery life of rugged phones is borderline untrustworthy.
These phones are built with longevity at the forefront of the design. With additional options of interchangeable batteries and wireless charging docks, the rugged phone is a trusted device that will remain operational start to finish as you tackle the day.
