Enhanced Push-to-Talk.
One-Touch Talk.

Stay in touch with the click of a button with DuraForce's Enhanced Push-to-Talk* walkie-talkie style communication. Its rugged design is optimized to improve the Push-to-talk experience with a large, tactile side button, an extra-loud speaker and external Push-to-talk remote speaker microphone and headset support. So staying connected and productive throughout your day is simple and easy.

*The EPTT feature is an additional cost and needs to be activated.

Never needs a raincheck

Water and rain don't slow you down. They shouldn't stop your smartphone, either. DuraForce is waterproof*, not just water-resistant.

*IP68 certified dust-tight protection and protection against water immersion in up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) for 30 minutes. Requires that all ports and covers are firmly closed. Phone is not intended to be used underwater and should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that your phone is waterproof, make sure the charger/data port, audio jack and card slot covers are properly sealed.

Built to a higher standard.
Military standard.

DuraForce has a high tolerance for pain with its Military Standard 810G rating. Whether you're at boot camp or camping with your crew, DuraForce is built to withstand rugged environments. Dust, shock, extreme temperatures, and blowing rain won't faze it – so accidents won't ruin your day.

A touch of genius

The DuraForce touchscreen works whether you're facing a snowy day on the slopes or a rainy day in the city. Glove and Wet Touchscreen Operation* lets you talk, text or open an app – even while wearing gloves or when the screen is wet. The feature is always activated, so there's no special setting to turn on. Plus dedicated hard keys for navigation and speakerphone offer quick access with gloved hands or large fingers. So go ahead, play in the rain and snap a pic – even while you're wearing gloves.

*Touchscreen can recognize input while wearing gloves to up to 3mm thick. The material, texture and thickness of the glove as well as how it fits your hand will impact performance. Individual performance may vary.

No crowd too loud with
Smart Sonic Receiver Technology

It sounds obvious, but not all phones deliver call clarity. No matter where you are with DuraForce – a busy restaurant or loud concert – you'll hear your phone conversations better. That's because it's equipped with loud, dual front speakers and Smart Sonic Receiver technology that transmits sounds as vibrations directly to your eardrum to allow you to hear clearly even in noisy environments.
