The best rugged cell phones Verizon offers

If you work hard and play even harder, you want a phone that can withstand a lot of drops, bumps, and dings while still performing. When shopping for rugged cell phones, Verizon has what you need. These devices are perfect for a tough day on the job or camping in the wilderness.

Kyocera DuraSport 5G UW

If you love adventure, you need one of the tough phones Verizon offers. The Kyocera DuraSport is the perfect companion for a daring spirit. Did your phone fall in the mud? It’s fine. Rinse it off in a nearby creek. Drop your phone on a rock or into a puddle? It’s okay; it was made for that. Whether you’re on a hike through the mountains or canoeing down the lake, the shatterproof smartphone is safeguarded against shock, vibration, temperature changes, and extreme weather conditions.

Never miss a beat with the all-day battery suited for life on the go. It gives you the power to capture the beautiful scenery on the dual-rear cameras. Or use the multi-camera to capture the action and your reaction simultaneously.

Kyocera DuraForce Ultra 5G UW

Reach for the Kyocera DuraForce if you have a hands-on job and are looking for a device you can trust. Gloves on or off, wet hands, dry hands, muddy hands, or cold hands, the Glove & Wet Touch screen enables you to function in real-world and real work conditions. Then tuck the phone away in your utility belt without worry. The Sapphire Shield glass protects against damage, including scratches from keys or tools, or a face-first drop onto the gravel.

Kyocera DuraSport 5G UW is rugged, but it’s built with performance in mind. It features ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network.

Extra Protection

If you already have a cellphone you love but want to add an extra layer of protection, consider adding a case that keeps you safe from bumps and drops.

Nimbus9 Case

Rugged protection doesn’t always have to look tough. The Nimbus9 Phantom 2 Series Case and Nimbus9 Cirrus 2 Case are the ultimate safeguards for your device, with military-grade protection that comes in multiple fun colors. It’s the perfect companion for an adventurous hike or a run through the hills. The rough terrain is no match for the resistant outer shell and shock absorbing inner layer, protecting your device from scratches and impacts.

EvoCheck Case

For those who want to show off their smartphone but still have superior drop protection, the Speck Presidio Series Case offers just that. The transparent case protects against multiple drops up to 13 feet. As a bonus, it is constructed with microbe-reducing material to keep it germ-free.

Incipio Grip Series

For those that are a little more accident-prone, visit your nearest Cellular Sales to grab the Incipio Grip Series Case. It was created to stop the drops before they happen and protect your phone when they do.

Capture an amazing action shot without worry, thanks to a grip design that prevents slippage, keeping your phone firmly in hand. The case was built with protective tech to keep your device intact for drops up to 14 feet, while the raised edge helps to ensure there are no cracks or scratches on your screen or camera.
