No matter how careful we are, accidents can happen whether we like it or not. This also applies to the way we use our smartphones. Which brings us our main topic; a list of durable smartphones that are capable of enduring the likes of accidental bumps and drops as well as the ability to resist dust, rain and water.

To most average phone users, the Shenzhen-based Blackview may not be a familiar or instantly recognisable brand name that comes to mind. But unlike most Chinese phone makers, Blackview has a unique selling point in terms of its rugged design.

The budget-friendly Blackview BV9000 has an 18:9 full-screen display that is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. With an IP68-rated smartphone, the phone is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. Finally, it boasts a massive 4,180mAh battery which will last up to 130 hours on a standby mode and withstand 17 hours of web browsing.

For an entry-level smartphone like Motorola Moto G6, it sure doesn’t skimp on its specs and design. The phone boasts a 5.7-inch full HD+ IPS display with curved Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the back of the phone and a sturdy aluminium frame around its edges.

Despite not being a fully water-resistant phone, Moto G6 does include a water-repellant “splash-proof” protection. As it has advanced nano-coating technology, the phone is still resistant to minor water splashes. Other highlights of this phone include a dual 12MP main camera with an 8MP selfie shooter and a fast-charging capability.

Samsung Galaxy S10

Most durable high-performance premium smartphone - with best camera
Updated on 11th August 2020

The Samsung Galaxy S10 offers top-of-the-line specs and design, complete with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front display. Though seemingly fragile, the S10 is built tough to survive moderate accidental drops and is highly resistant against scratches. 

It also has IP68 dust-and-water-resistant rating, whereby it can sustain  submersion of up to 1.5 metres for 30 minutes.

One of the biggest highlights about Galaxy S10 is the impressive multi-camera setup. This includes a triple main camera consisting of two 12MP wide-angle and telephoto lens as well as a 16MP ultra-wide shooter that allows you to fit more into one frame.

The phone’s 10MP front-facing camera also has a Live Focus feature for added bokeh effects and a Dual Pixel sensor technology for snappier autofocus performance. Finally, the Galaxy S10 packs a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, offering lightning-fast performance regardless of browsing websites or streaming videos.

Specs-wise, it boasts a 6.18-inch IPS LCD display with a wide screen-to-body ratio of up to 82.2%, a Snapdragon 845 processor and a microSD card slot that’s extendable at up to 256GB of storage.

True to its name, this high-end Sony Xperia phone is equipped with sufficient outer protection of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back. And of course, it also has IP68-rated dust-and water-resistant capabilities. On the inside, it packs a 4K HDR display equivalent to that of Sony’s Bravia TVs which gives you amazing visual clarity and colour reproduction.

The camera is no slouch either, with an impressive 19MP main camera + 13MP selfie shooter. Meanwhile the dual SIM slot enables you to take advantage of using two different SIM cards simultaneously as well as its ability to double the storage up to 256GB.

Best small durable smartphone
Updated on 11th August 2020

Hate carrying a large-screen smartphone? Here’s your next best alternative worth considering: the 5.0-inch Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, which is small enough to fit most hands as well as pants/jeans pockets. This tiny beast is equipped with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection and is rated at IP65/68 against dust and water.

Despite its compact size, the XZ2 is pretty much a performance-driven smartphone. XZ2 runs on a Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor and has 64GB of internal storage extendable up to 400 GB using the microSD card slot. The camera is just as great, thanks to the rear 19MP main camera that can produce photos with amazing details and accurate colour.
