Description of the RugGear RG655 Black

RugGear RG655 Black

RugGear is becoming increasingly well-known in the world of ruggedized smartphones, or smartphones that can take a punch. This black RG655 has a lot to offer despite its mid-range price tag. This is a handy device if you're often outdoors or have an intense physical job.

This device can handle a 1.5 metre fall, is dust and water resistant thanks to the IP68 certificate, and comes fitted with a large battery. The RG655 runs on Android 9.0 Pie and features a 5.5-inch display. On top of that, this device comes with an extra physical button that you can use to quickly start up frequently-used apps.

Can handle a 1.5 metre fall

This black ruggedized smartphone from RugGear was tested for drops from 1.5 metres. These drops are no problem for this rugged outdoor phone, and this device also has an MIL-STD 810G certificate. That means this device will keep working, even in extremely cold or high temperatures.

Up to 30 minutes under water

The RG655 also has an IP68 certificate, which means dust can't get into your device. This smartphone is waterproof, so it can be held under water at a depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes. In all, this is a very good smartphone for real adventurers, sports lovers, or people with a very physical or dirty job.

Loud speaker and extra clear display

Because this device needs to work perfectly in every circumstance, RugGear has opted for an extra loud speaker. On top of that, you can heighten the brightness level up to 500 Nits. With this feature, you can easily read the screen in all kinds of light circumstances, even in bright sunlight.

Battery for the entire day

This device is equipped with a 4200mAh battery that easily lasts an entire day on one full charge. Charging happens via the somewhat old-fashioned microUSB port. However, the energy-efficient processor in this RG655 helps to provide an even longer battery life.

Processor for a mid-ranger

This device comes equipped with a MediaTek processor, which was a clear choice for this price range. This processor provides average performance, which is enough for everyday tasks. Now you can take pictures of your new project and its progress, and send them through to your client or boss right away.

5.5-inch screen

This rugged smartphone comes fitted with a display that consists of a 5.5-inch IPS panel with a 1440x720 pixel resolution. That means the device is a bit more elongated than it used to be, which makes it easier to handle. The maximum brightness of the display is quite high, so you can easily read the screen in bright sunlight.

Programmable button

The physical button on the left of the device can be programmed to do what you want. With this feature, you can open a certain application quickly or perform certain actions. Now you won't actually have to use the display, which is useful if you're very busy in the work space.

Sound via speaker or headphones

RugGear has equipped this RG655 Black with a speaker that's extra loud, which is great for rougher circumstances of course. On top of that, you can listen to music via the 3.5mm port. This port is closed off with a small flap to prevent dust and water from getting in.

8 and 13-megapixel cameras

There are two cameras in this device. The front camera has an 8-megapixel resolution, while the camera on the back of the device has a 13-megapixel resolution. That means both cameras have a good resolution that captures plenty of details, so you can take pictures of progressing projects or make video calls.

Reachable on two phone numbers

You don't want to carry around a second phone for work, because that's so old fashioned! This rugged device comes equipped with two SIM card slots, so you can be reached on two phone numbers while only carrying around one device. Now you can easily separate work and private calls.

32GB of expandable storage space

This device comes with 32GB of internal storage, which is enough for some apps, pictures, and other files. If this isn't enough space, you can expand it easily and quickly. Simply place a microSD card inside your device to add a maximum of 128GB of storage space.

Android 9.0 Pie

This device runs on Android 9.0 Pie, which is a very nice operating system. You don't usually see this version of Android in devices in this price range. With this operating system, you can get started right away and be sure you'll have everything a modern smartphone should offer.
