Product Description

Product Description

For some it might not always be feasible to have a nice smartphone because of the environments we work or find ourselves in, they are just too vulnerable to damage and the last thing you want is to spend large amounts of money replacing, protecting or repairing phones. You might have a smartphone you use occasionally or for personal reasons but for work it’s a basic phone that can cope. JCB have been making phones for a while but they have still been fairly limited in capability, but they have been rugged. Motorola have created waves with their water resistant and dust resistant DEFY, and it has become highly appealing to trades people or those who are a bit clumsy with phones. The Pro-Smart is JCB’s answer to the Motorola DEFY. It is a fully fledged smartphone that is capable for calls, texts, web browsing, navigation video playback and more. However the difference is that the unit is IP67 rated meaning it will survive being dropped in water (for short periods of time). It will take a few knocks and will be more resistant to dust and dirt than many other phones. Yes the 3.2” touchscreen is still the most vulnerable part but the Pro-Smart is a blend of practical rugged phone and cutting edge smartphone. The Google Android operating system offers seamless integration with Gmail, you Google contacts, calendar and much more. Customise the home screen with different wallpapers, applications and a set up that works for you. Use the 3G data or WiFi connection to download free of paid for applications from Google Play, their app store. Don’t limit yourself to a basic phone or not taking your smartphone out with you because you fear damaging it. The Toughphone Pro-Smart allows you to communicate and connect in confidence and with a 2000mAh battery, it will last all day.

Very robust, fits in your pocket, slim enough not to get in the way. Emails on the move great. Haven't run over it yet but have already dropped it and survived.

Bought phone as in building trade thought would be a safe bet, on receiving this I had a faulty battery although the seller was excellent and bought me a replacement, three days later screen froze and had to be sent back to the manufactures to fix. They have been very helpful in finding the fault and replacing the phone with a new on. Like the phone has all the apps that I need just hope it will last with no more problems when it returns from manufactures.

Sits very snugly in the hand, very distinguished and draws attention.
Wanted something which is different and not out of date in 6 months
and selling at half price, (holds its value)Very robust and easy to use.(see below)
Took the best part of a month to get my head round its operation.
Never had a Smart phone before.
There are published instructions on the net if you look hard but not
very comprehensive, NO INSTRUCTIONS ARE PROVIDED WITH THE PHONE!
No accessories are provided by JCB , I found NIKON COOLPIX 9100
camera case fits well and picked 1 up for less than £5.00
Bought extra battery elsewhere for a tenner which seems better than the original
charges up to 100% with usb car charger with ease and seems to last longer.
The camera is only fair with its low definition lens.
The loud speaker is ok in the car
but not so good outdoors.
Exclusive.
CONTINUOUS GRATIFICATION!
Had it for 3 months now and would buy it again.

Interesting that this has been discontinued, I wonder why? she says sarcastically. Got it for my hubby as a Christmas present, he is a Luddite handyman who keeps breaking his phones, so I thought it would ease him into the modern world with a 'simple to use' Smartphone which wouldn't break. Quite expensive phone, and it is certainly tough and hasn't broken nearly a year later. But really guys, back to the drawing board!!! For instance, the buttons are too tiny for a man's hands, so turning the damn thing on or off is a bit of a challenge! It is a touch screen, but the screen is so tiny the keyboard is also too small for man hands. The volume is really quiet even for a normal phone, so hearing it on a building site is gonna be impossible! It is a major headache getting the battery cover on and off. Getting the charge lead in is a bit fiddly for big man fingers. And it is a bugger to try and text on. It only has basic functions, very minimal apps, so compared to my Samsung Galaxy S3 it is quite frankly a pain in the arse. However, it does make (quiet) calls and you can send and receive texts, so I guess it does what it says on the box.

I'll echo some other reviews. This is a basic Android phone, you can easily find this for £50 on any network. What those phones lack is substance and this handset has that in droves.

Firstly, it may actually be the last handset you ever buy. The functions I use most are texting and Wi-Fi hotspot and it has those. I'm actually using the internet connection on the phone as I write this. Battery life is insane, 4 days on average use. Build quality is ridiculous. I've not tested the claims but then why would I? it's an expensive phone. It's yellow, that is all I have to say on this point but I'll reiterate, it's yellow and has the word JCB on it. I don't know of any Samsung or Apple product that offer this feature.

Tips: Buy a big MicroSD card and an app manager so you can quickly move apps to this instead of the internal memory. You do have to be selective as to what you download but again, basic phone not a power house.

All in all a 5 star effort from a name you know. Don't be put off by other reviews from people who tried to break it and succeeded.

After owning one for about 6 months, the keyboard is impossible for me to use so for accessing the i/net forget it. It seemed pretty tough, but last night the screen got this black mark like a marijuana plant over it so now only half usable. I don't remember knocking it or anything as I am pretty careful with phones. So not too happy with this end result and wouldn't buy another one or recommend it
