It is the third generation Xcover that boasts the smartest design and best specifications yet.

IP67 rated, it can be immersed in fresh water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter and dropped onto concrete from heights of 1.2 meters onto solid concrete, so if you work at height, use your phone in tough conditions and are often outdoors, this could be a good solution for you.

Running the Android operating system, you can easily personalise the phone by downloading apps from the Play store, changing the ringtones, wallpapers and more.  Create documents on the go with Google Drive, navigate from A to B with maps and share your thoughts and images captured on the 5 megapixel camera to social networks which can be connected to the device.

Remaining online through WiFi or 4G connectivity, you can remain productive at all times.

The ‘rugged’ nature of the phone means it is slightly larger around the edges than most but for practical reasons.  Physical buttons make it easy to control the device even when wet, no capacitive buttons like some handsets here.

You can pick up the Xcover 3 from Technolec today as a SIM free handset for just £189.99 including VAT.
