There are now a plethora of tough-phones available from China ( Elephone , Cubot , Blackview ) but nothing seems to be ticking all of my boxes . I loved the Motorolla Defy , I kept it updated until a Modded version of KitKat .
I initially had an interest in toughphones due , to all year round commuting on a motorcycle and needing a waterproof sat nav . I am back on the bike and have travelling in mind , and needing a decent toughphone
I have small hands so anything 6 " plus seems inoperable with one hand
Earphone Jack would be greatly appreciated ( Lack of earphone jack is borderline a dealbreaker )
Decent battery life , while using my GPS on my current phone , its dead/ overheating within 6 hours ( Huawei P10 lite - Chinese spycrap )
NFC , Wireless charging are massive plus points .
Decent Screen/ camera Bumper - Many do not have much lip/bumper around the screen ( crap design )
USB C Essential ( faster / more reliable charging )
Fairy decent camera - will be going on holiday with this
Waterproof - will want beach/ snorkelling snaps
Some phones I am considering and why ( no particular order )
Ulephone 6E - Modern efficient Chipset, nice looking phone - Sadly no audio jack, a little on the larger size , no sufficient bumper around screen
Doogee S90 - Robust , Extended battery but , No notification LED ( KMT
) , No Audio jack
BlackView 6800Pro Massive battery , good size ( 5.7") , fairly good looking good spec ( NFC wireless charging ) Cheap but , no audio jack , not much screen bumper/lip
Getnord Lynx , Smaller screen , Decent Battery, very good looking, Headphone jack ( apparently ) , Ram charging mount compatible but , low RAM ( 2GB ) , little internal Storage ( 16GB )
Any help with making a decision would be appreciated, I have been spending hours going around and around trying to choose .
