If you consistently work outdoors or love to hike, mountain climb, or camp, you need the Kyocera DuraSport 5G. This phone was designed to be the gold-standard for cell phone durability, with MIL-STD-810H ratings for drop, shock, and temperature resistance as well as IP68 water resistance. So water, direct sunlight, and even a 5-foot drop onto solid concrete can't stop this phone. The screen's glass is scratch and shatter resistant and is designed for use with gloves and wet hands for better interactivity without having to wash up or remove your work gloves. It's rated for operation in temperatures ranging from -4 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-20 to 60 degrees Celsius), and has a built-in GPS to stand up to the toughest outdoor conditions.

The integrated battery gives you up to 26 hours of use on a full charge with normal calls, app use, and texting. But if you really need your DuraSport to last, you can place the phone in standby mode which extends the battery life to a truly impressive 336 hours (which is about 14 days) so you can stay connected while camping, hiking, or in an emergency. The DuraSport supports 5G cellular networks as well as Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to turn the phone into a hotspot when needed. And you can even connect it to Microsoft Teams and other chat apps for a push-to-talk mode.
