October 8th, 2012 · No Comments

There is a need for phones which are waterproof and have shock absorbers .Given below are some of the best waterproof and shockproof android phones.


Our phones contain some of our most personal data. Spilling liquids on it by mistake might damage the internal circuitry on the phone and the data in the phone may be lost forever along with the phone itself. A more common type of damage is due to dropping the phone. Thus, there is a need for phones which are waterproof and have shock absorbers which can handle such falls or spills and come out as sturdy after the fall as it was before. Given below are some such phones which have been built to withstand any rough handling dished out to them.


Built like a fort, the FortisX is an all-purpose dustproof, waterproof and shockproof phone running on Android 2.3. It has a built-in flashlight, supports 3G and GSM dual SIMs, comes unlocked for worldwide use and includes a mountaineering clasp. It also has a GPS module so that you can keep track of your position while on the go and get to know the quickest routes to your favorite places. It also comes with a 4GB microSD card. It runs on an 800 MHz CPU with 264MB of RAM and has a 3.2 inch 320×480 pixel display. It has internal memory of up to 512MB and can be extended up to 32GB via microSD.


It comes with Android 2.2 OS. It comes unlocked for worldwide use and supports dual SIM cards. It has a great 5MP camera. Added features include GPS navigation, email, FM Radio, MP3 Playback, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, memory card slots, video player, gravity response, front camera, SMS and MMS. The internal storage can be upgraded to 32GB via microSD. The 3.5 inch screen is bright and vibrant. It is built like a tank with shockproof, waterproof and dustproof features.

NEC 909e

NEC is a Japanese electronics brand which had been dormant for almost 6 years. Recently, they released a new phone, the NEC 909e. Powered by a single core 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and having 512MB of RAM, the 909e has a totally waterproof, shockproof and dustproof exterior which can even hold its own in sub-zero conditions. It has a 3.6 inch WVGA display with a resolution of 800  480 pixels protected by a Gorilla Glass. It comes with 1GB of ROM. The camera is a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera which is of very good quality. It has support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS and a battery that lasts for a long time on a single charge. It comes with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.


With the phones listed above, one doesn’t have to worry about accidental drops or spills. Although costlier than standard phones having the same features, it’s definitely a better option to be prepared for an accident rather than having to suffer later. It is expected that such phones are going to come at cheaper rates in the market in the near future.
