Our picks will survive hard falls, deep water, dusty shelves, and extreme heat.
If you need a smartphone that's built like a tank and can withstand damage from drops, spills, dirt, dust, mud, and more, we spent 10 hours researching more than a dozen different rugged smartphones to find the best ones you can buy. So, whether you work in construction or need a device that can survive a camping trip, these picks won’t need any cases or screen protectors. They forgo shiny glass backs and aluminum frames for polycarbonate casing and rubberized edges to absorb shock. You can feel confident knowing they won’t break when life or accidents comes at you.
