Summary: I have had my Rugby Smart for about a year and then I lost it. The problem was, I had been working in the garage, in the back yard and even up in the attic. It could be anywhere and I looked all over to no avail. Of course I found it in the last place I looked.
Summary: I've has this phone now for about 8 months now. I live in the Sierra's. It's fallen in the snow, dropped on the ground and been in the rain. It's already had a brutal life and thus far, it's survived everything thats happened to it. Works well.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, good battery life
Summary: I have owned this phone for about a month now. I love it. I sold my Galaxy s3 to get this phone. I was afraid of breaking the G3. I work outside and in a garage 8 hrs. a day. Hot, cold, sweat it all works after all the punishment it gets.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color

Summary: I bought this phone due to its tough reputation. I had one of the first Rugby's and it survived a twenty foot fall, no problem. I hope I don't drop this Rugby that far, but I'm not too worried if I do.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, the flashlight rocks!
Summary: Very good phone, since i work alot of handman jobs, I tend to sweat alot and I've been throug 3 phones in a timespan of 7 months. I was looking for a phone that could satisfy my techie side as well as my outdoorsy side.
Summary: My last phone was the first rugby model. I upgraded to the Rugby Smart after loving the first one. Every phone I've had before the Rugby series would break or malfunction in 2 years or less(the standard upgrade time for major cellphone carriers).
