In the mobile market, i find a lot protected smartphone, but most of them have the same design, and has a fairly simple screens.
The company Aermoo decided that a secure mobile device can also be strong, and introduced the world’s first “smartphone-SUV” with edge-to-edge display called Aermoo.
The look of this smartphone already shows where it is headed: to become an off-road beast. As such: in addition to resisting water and water splashes at 1 meter depth for up to half an hour, its IP-68 specification gives it protection against dust. And its shockproof design will make it hold even in the fall.
Aermoo come with 5.2 inch LCD IPS screen, Processor MediaTek MT6757, 5,000 mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat, Shockproof design and elements with IP-68 certification, NFC, Rear camera capable of taking 84 Megapixel photos.
so i think Aermoo is Best choice for me.

screen already cracked with NO effort & customer svc sucks
tonyvjr57 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
screen already cracked with NO effort & customer svc sucks, phone is supposed to be indestructible but they lied as the screen with NO effort cracked already, kyocera makes YOU pay for shipping it back ( still under warrantee ) they should issue an RMA with shipping & handling there & back to the customer but as i said make you pay for their poor quality build of a phone, i made a mistake getting this phone as the casio commando C811 was a better built phone but lacked certain software & hardware enhancements which was the ONLY fault , wished casio continued building & enhancing on the commando as i would have selected that phone instead of this crap

10/10 Durability, Well-rounded phone, Excellent for outdoors/work.
DarkNeo has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Loud, clean, durable machine. It smokes my old Droid Razr which I had for well over 4 years. I was needing some new hardware and for my outdoors work with pyrotechnics, I was wanting something of superior design. The phone is without a doubt as durable as people say. I'm always careful with my tech so I haven't done anything horrible to it, but that doesn't mean one can't be cautious. The screen is fantastic and crystal clear, very responsive to touch. It functions pretty quick and well, unlike my old and sluggish Droid Razr(which used to be pretty good!).
The call quality, wifi connection, data connection, and so on is just as good if not better than any other phone. No problems there.
I really liked the design of the phone overall and the hardware gives a superior edge and feel to the phone. It's very well rounded in terms of hardware and functionality. As a bonus, the phone is quite reasonable price-wise compared to other phones. The sapphire screen is nothing to joke about. It can handle a lot. From drops, impacts, collision and rubbing with keys, and so on... it remains flawless. I think you'd have to REALLY try to actually damage the screen or even scratch it. I don't even use a screen protector.
The back camera is good but isn't anything to boast about. The front facing camera is mediocre and probably only good for selfies or to be used as a mirror(isn't that all people use the front for anyways?).
The battery life is killer compared to any other phone I've seen....

Bit of a disappointment so far....
abater has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I am a farmer, run heavy machinery, cut down trees, etc. Needed a robust phone. Like the supposed indestructibility of this model and its protective belt case. (Why the camera lens isn't somehow covered by the holster I don't know.)
Unfortunately the cell reception and Bluetooth operation is very poor and my wife hangs up on me versus tolerating the breakup and distortion. Came across this site while looking for possible resolutions.

Rugged phone, but touchscreen freezes, mic sounds muffled, and poor wireless reception
geerlijd has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The design looks rugged, and I bought it because it was waterproof. It functioned well for about 2 weeks, however, I got poor feedback on the far end audio. Callers said I sounded like I was in a fish bowl, or underwater.
The wireless reception was poor compared to other phones I've used. Tended to drop networks much quicker than I'm used to.
After a couple weeks the touch screen started freezing intermittently. Usually just the bottom inch or so wouldn't work (but thats where the icons are that you use the most). I power cycle seemed to reset it, so it seems like a software or memory issue.
I am returning while I still can.

I love this phone!
wesright has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Coming from the last two Casio Commando rugged phones I was sad to lost the Commando 4G but this phone makes up for it in every way. The camera(s) are much better, you almost have to try to take a bad picture. The speed is much better than most phones I've seen. The UI is very snappy. The quad core CPU does its job. The screen is much better and I love the Sapphire Screen. It is virtually unscratchable. Check Youtube for vids on people trying to scratch it. I love it. The battery can't be removed, one of the things I hate about the ipone as well, but it does last longer than I thought it would. Running blurtooth and Audible for about 9 hours drains the batter down to maybe 60-70%. That surprised me. Even with WiFi on all day and connected when at home I almost never go below 40%, even with a lot of use. I really have to try to get it down to 30% and less. I also love the wireless charging!! I just place it on the pad and it charges without me having to pry open a cover.(because it is waterproof all of the connectors have covers) The HD screen is surprisingly large as well. It doesn't seem so at first but when you use it the size really stands out. The new "OK Google" voice feature is great. I can set it to work from any screen, even if the phone is locked, I just say OK Google and it recognizes me. "Wake me up in 30 minutes" and it sets the alarm on its own. I ask questions and it Googles the answer. I love the English Accent. I asked it who the 10th Doctor was and it "told" me...

Kyocera Brigadier Tough as Nails
dingeesboy has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I really dig this phone, for the price that Verizon had this at ($49.99) it was a steal.
I am really tough on my phones, this bad boy had already been put through the ringer and has done a kick butt job handling everything that's been thrown at it.
I've dropped it water (6ft to be exact) worked like a charm.
Ive dropped it and have hit the screen on a bunch of different objects (keys, rocks, screws) the sapphire shield is great.
The body has a nice rubber grip & the rest is pretty solid and well built.
i would buy this phone over again, it suits my needs well.

whenever I call someone on the other side of the call they can hear my surrounding noise through the phone and Verizon tried to fix it but they couldn't get it fixed so they offered me a customer service phone but they could not fix it. The factory maker told me to return the phone and then between 10-20 days they would explain what was the problem with the phone so I decided to return the phone to Verizon. I'm real disappointed on this phone...

Durable, Fast, and Unique.
Wolfgang has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
First and foremost, I bought this phone for the sole purpose of its versatility. I'm a bit clumsy and I'm not a fan of phone cases. That's where this guy made an appearance.
Build: Meets MIL-STD-810 requirements. Fancy way of saying this phone is immune to: Water, dust, shock, salt air, solar radiation, and low pressures. (I guess the last two options will be great if you decide to snapchat from the International Space Station.) Obviously this phone has a rugged look, but still maintains a level of sophistication.
Reception/Quality: Great speaker, and radio has been picking up cell service and WiFi very well.
Speed: Quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. Enough said for Android 4.4
Battery: Not the best, but surely not the worst. Solid B Grade on the battery life. Grant it, I wake up every morning and watch 20 minutes of videos. Afterwards, I'll usually play Pandora on a 30-40 minute commute. Following that, I constantly stay updated on a Fantasy Baseball team. So my opinion on the battery life may be a bit biased.
All-in-all, this a great phone from start to finish. If you are an outdoors person, than this is the phone to get.
