Withstands a drop of 1.5 meters
The RugGear RG655 has been tested to drop the device from 1.5 meters. That’s no problem at all for this rugged outdoor phone, which also has a MIL-STD 810G certification. This means that the device will continue to work even in extremely cold or high temperatures.
RG655 can be submerged for up to 30 minutes
The RG655 also has an IP68 certification, which ensures that dust ingress will never occur. The device is also waterproof and can be held underwater for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 1.5 meters. All in all, this is a very nice device for the true adventurers, athletes or people with physically demanding or dirty jobs.
Loud speaker and extra bright display
Since this device should work perfectly in all circumstances, RugGear has chosen an extra loud speaker. In addition, the brightness of the display of this device can be increased to 500 Nits. This makes the display easy to read in all kinds of light conditions, including bright sunshine.
It was decided to provide this device with a battery of 4200mAh, which will easily get you through the day on one charge. Charging is still done via the somewhat outdated microUSB port. What also helps for a good battery life is the choice of processor in this RG655.
Processor for a mid-ranger
This device features a MediaTek processor, a clear choice in this price segment. With this, the performance is average, but enough for everyday activities. Take pictures of your new project or progress and send them directly to the client, or of course your boss.
RG655 5.5 inch screen
The screen is a 5.5-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1440×720 pixels. This makes the device a bit more elongated than before, but therefore more manageable. The maximum brightness of the screen is high, so that the screen can also be read in full sunlight, for example.
Programmable button on the RG655
The physical button on the left side of the device can be set as a programmable button. This allows you to quickly open an application or perform a certain action. This way you don’t necessarily have to use the screen, convenient if you are busy in the work field.
Sound via speaker or earphones
RugGear has equipped this RG655 Black with an extra loud speaker, which is great for the rougher conditions of course. It is also possible to listen to music via the 3.5 mm jack. This is closed with a flap, to ensure water and dust resistance.
Cameras for the workplace
There are two cameras present in this device, with the front camera having a resolution of 8 megapixels. The rear camera shoots pictures of up to 13 megapixels. So both cameras have a great resolution for capturing details of your progressing projects or for video calling.
Reachable on two numbers
A second phone for work, that’s old-fashioned! The RG655 smartphone has room for two SIM cards, so you can be reached on two numbers with one phone in your pocket. This way you can easily keep your private life and business life separate, which is exactly what you want.
32GB expandable storage
By default, you will find 32GB of internal storage in this device, enough for some apps, photos and other files. If it is still a bit too little, then you can easily and quickly expand it. Just add a microSD card to add up to 128GB of extra storage.
Android 9.0 Pie
The RG655 runs on Android 9.0 Pie. So you can be sure that you can get started right away and do everything you expect from a modern smartphone.
