    CAT or JCB branded smartphones are worth a look. Don't expect Hi Spec but they do stand up to a bit of abuse.

    Tuff phones also worth a look.
     
  4. Just do what everyone does here

    Buy the smart phone of your choice then buy an Otter Box or similar hard case to protect it

    My iPhone 5 is how many years old, survives farming / off road motorbikes & athletics. Been dropped etc many times & caught in rain etc ( never dropped it into water though ) , no physical problems with it at all

    Best insurance for your phone there is

    Android 8.1 so you should be able. Hi spec phone for the money. Still a lot for a farm phone. Just opened their European base in this country so their not worried about brexit. Should be able to get backup.
    Was just about to buy one but junior just upgraded to iPhone now at long last he’s paying so got a hand me down.

    I have a ruggex ip38 tuff phone with android system on board . Brilliant phone takes a lot of abuse Cost about £180.00 and the battery will last about 3 days on a charge. Worth a look
