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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
