Aspera R25t

As mobile phones have become steadily more advanced over the years, so too have they grown more fragile. Bigger screens become easier to crack, bulkier handsets become easier to drop and the abundance of delicate technology contained within their shells becomes even more susceptible to water, dirt and other environmental hazards.

For anyone who spends a lot of time in and around particularly hazardous environments, this can be a serious problem. You don't want to bring a $1,000 iPhone to the beach only to leave with a sand-encrusted paperweight that's going to cost hundreds of dollars to repair.

This is the kind of disaster Aspera hopes to avoid with phones like the R25t. Designed to survive all manner of rough-and-tumble situations including drops, spills and submersion in water, the Aspera R25t is a simple yet sturdy device well suited for tradespeople, manual labourers or anyone looking for a phone they won't need to cradle like a defenceless newborn.

Design

  • Water and dust resistance for use in hazardous environments.
  • Reinforced frame offers extra protection from falls and impacts.

Camera

  • A 2MP sensor provides enough clarity for basic photography.
  • No auto-focus, zoom or other features to speak of.

Performance

  • Sufficiently powerful to handle the basic tasks it's capable of.

Battery

  • Up to 8 hours of talk time and 400 hours on standby, according to Aspera.

    After you take a photo with the r25t rugged phone. Can you zoom in on the photo making it larger.
    Is the r25t quick and easy to type and send messages without having to use the prediction typing method

      Hi Danny,

      Thank you for leaving a question.

      Once you have already taken the picture and go to gallery to view the photo, yes you would have zoom capabilities there. Please note though that due to the low camera resolution, photos may be pixelated and not as clear as other higher camera resolution phones. The typing feature for the R25t is also well. You may or may not remove the feature of predictive typing depending on your preference. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
