Kyocera Sapphire Shield. Rugged?
That's not even scratching the surface.

In everyday rugged environments, fragility just doesn't fly. That's why the touchscreen on DuraScout is made with Kyocera's Sapphire Shield. Second only to diamonds in mineral toughness, Sapphire Shield takes your touchscreen as far away from fragile as you can get. Rocks, pavement or in a pocket full of keys are no match – your screen is virtually scratch proof.

Water. Dust. Rain.
All the elements for success.

Dust storms, one minute. Downpours, the next. When conditions are unpredictable, you need a phone that's just the opposite. In DuraScout, you have a smartphone that's waterproof*, dustproof, shockproof and drop proof. So, from dusty fields to accidental drops in the sink, you can be confident you and your phone will survive the everyday.

*Certified for IP68   Protection against dust and water immersion for up to 30 minutes in up to 6¬†feet (1.8¬†meters). Phone is not intended to be used under water and should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that phone is waterproof, make sure the charger/data port, audio jack and card slot covers are properly seated, with no foreign objects obstructing the seals.

Tough enough for the military.
Tough enough for your army.

We know how rough families can be on mobile devices. That's why DuraScout has been tested against the toughest family of them all: the Military. Its Military Standard 810G Rating ensures protection against dust, shock, drops, vibration, extreme temperatures, blowing rain, low pressure, high altitude, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, blowing rain, water immersion or any enemy your family can dream up next.

Loud and proud.
The benefit of Smart Sonic Receiver Technology.

Anyone who's tried to take a call over the sound of a train or howling wind knows outdoor environments can be noisy. Which is what makes the Smart Sonic Reciever Technology on DuraScout so genius. It enables call clarity by actually turning sounds into vibrations that travel directly to your eardrum, completely bypassing background noise.

Plus, with loud, dual-front speakers activated by a dedicated Speaker Key, peak volume can be adjusted to an astonishing 100dB, as loud as a jackhammer only 6.5 feet away.

Give it the glove test
and this screen will shine.

In rain or in the cold, the touchscreen on DuraScout simply can't be beat. With its unique Glove and Wet Touchscreen Operation* that comes standard and is always on, navigating a wet screen or while wearing gloves comes as natural as the weather.

*Touchscreen can recognize input while wearing gloves to up to 3mm thick. The material, texture and thickness of the glove as well as how it fits your hand will impact performance. Individual performance may vary.
