A rugged phone that doesn't break the bank

from Android Community

Unlike with other phones like the Galaxy S7 or LG G5, this phone is likely to appeal to a smaller audience. If you are in need of a rugged phone but don't want to miss out on all the benefits of how far Android has come, this is a great middle grounds. The display is nicer than other rugged phones, and the software doesn't get in the way. Sure, AT&T has loaded it with bloatware, but those things are more likely to anger the nerds than it is to the audience which this phone is meant to appeal to.

Phone Scoop

Built like a tank, huge and heavy

from Phone Scoop

Kyocera has created an interesting smartphone in the DuraForce XD. This massive handset is as tough as they come and lives up to its billing as an ultra-rugged phablet.

The XD survived plenty of abuse while I reviewed it. There's no question it can handle whatever conditions it might encounter. Wet-screen tracking and gloved-hand sensitivity help when the going gets tough (or at least cold and wet). If your needs stop at tough, then the XD could be exactly what you should buy.
