Kyocera Torque E6710

And I wasted my money again to buy the XT version which was the same phone but they added a permanent 16 gig microsd which gave it 20 gigs storage, but was still only 1 gig ram, duo core cpu. So too slow to do any apps. Looking back at the time when the XT came out in 2014 the samsung s5 was available had 2 gigs of ram 16 gigs of storage and quad core cpu which is still usable today. And soon afterwards the higher s6 was available.
If you wanted a rugged phone just get a rugged flip phone from now on.
I also looked the modern version of this phone at the spring store Kyocera DuraForce PRO
its modern spec'd but with 32 gigs storage it is loaded with bloatware and only gives you 16 available when you check the hardware. Once you download your apps very soon you will be full.

Excellent phone for the time, tho outdated now. Smaller form factor actually a plus, IMHO. Yes, very rugged - I've dropped it out of my tool bag onto concrete from over 10 ft up, many, many times and it is still fine. I've also dropped it in sludge, in a concrete mixer with the wet concrete (display got a bit hazy after that but still good) , and slimy greasy water -- all with no problems - I just wash it off.
However... it only works on CDMA networks (primarily USA). For certain I can say it does not work in the UK, Ireland, France, or Germany. Internal memory was OK when I got it years ago, but now I find it limiting. And tho you can add a 32GB MicroSD card because it's an older android o/s, not everything can be moved to the SD card.

A shame! This i love this rugged phones but to be honest i prefer to buy them from China for the prices and liberation (Xio or AGM). The agm in my experience are quite a surprise... only to see if they are as durable as they claim :)

NO! It can NOT be used on GSM network. The SIM card is a secondary authorization to the CDMA network. STUPID IDEA!!!!!
