ByinNew Phones | January 16, 2013

Runbo X5Rugged phones are designed to provide a means of communication for active users who spend a lot of time outdoors. For this main reason they should be able to withstand extreme conditions and rough treatment. Sophisticated features are usually of secondary importance, but once in a while you come across such stars as the Runbo X3 and Runbo X5, which combine durable bodies with decent specs and walkie-talkie feature. Currently both handsets are available on eBay for $380 or from manufacturer’s website for ¥1,999, which is translates to $318.

Runbo X3 and X5 – Overview

Runbo X3We could say that the phones have rather standard bodies for rugged devices, if it was not for the massive stub antennas, which give somewhat weird impression. As old-fashioned as they seem, there is actually a reason for them to be there – both handsets can be used as walkie-talkies, allowing free of charge communication at a distance of up to 10 kilometers. When you do not want to use this feature, the antennas can be detached giving the phones a more modern look.

Both, the Runbo X3 and Runbo X5, are triple IP67 certified, meaning they are shock, water and dust resistant, and come with dual-core 1 GHz MTK6577 CPUs, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, microSD support and huge 3,800 mAh batteries. They also offer 8 megapixel rear camera, 0.3 MP front shooters, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS navigation and app-triggered laser pointer, and run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Both smartphones are quad-band and comes unlocked, which means that the phone can be used with any GSM service provider, such as AT&T or T-Mobile. The only difference between the models is that the X5 sports a 4.3-inch WVGA IPS screen, while the X3 features a 3.5-inch display and the additional space is occupied by a QWERTY keyboard.
