There is a dearth of affordable rugged phones you can take hiking, camping or on a simple weekend away from the charger, and not have them always on the back of your mind in terms of endurance - both physical or induced by range anxiety. The up-and-coming Poptel brand is staying true to its name by introducing a tough handset for the masses, the P9000 Max, with global LTE bands modem version.
The star of the P9000 Max show, however, is its ruggedized nature exterior. Poptel protected the front with Gorilla Glass, and added multiple rubber layers so that the light but durable composite of the body can withstand drops and hurls. An IP68 certification ensures that the handset can take a dunk while crossing that creek with sleepy eyes after a night in the tent, and the USB-C port is protected with a plug for added measure.
As for extra features, there's fast unlocking with the rear finger scanner, true NFC support, gestures like tap-to-wake to supplement the stock Android options, and the fun part - a camping torch consisting of four powerful LED lights to chase away those bears that just want to Netflix and chill with you in the tent. Poptel's running promo for the global version of the P9000 Max supporting multiple LTE bands slashes the price from $249.99 to $200 at the link below, so if you are looking for a durable hiking buddy, peek in for the coordinated color versions.
