Recently we’ve been in the middle of a new fad in the mobile industry with high-end device manufacturers releasing rugged devices that meet industry standards for water and dust protection. Sony started it with the Xperia Z that will be coming to the US soon and recently, Samsung announced the Galaxy S 4 Active that you can pre-order now on AT&T. We’re really glad to see more “rugged” phone options becoming available to us, especially with high-end specs. Are these devices something you’re excited about? Have you been waiting for rugged high-end phones?
So we decided to make this the topic of our weekend poll: What do you think of the influx of high-end rugged phones?
Let us know what you think by participating in our poll or commenting below. I myself think the ruggedness is pretty cool, but I’ll be more impressed when a phone with exceptional drop protection is made without suffering in looks. It seems like manufactures are definitely doing their best to head this way. Have a great weekend everyone!
