A lot of smartphones released these days are made of glass, which looks nice but isn’t the most rugged material out there. If you’re more interested in a phone that’s tough, AT&T’s got a new phone for you.
This Android device is all about the active lifestyle, boasting a textured rubber backside, metal frame, and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. The X venture has also been MIL-STD 810G tested for resistance to things like shock and extreme temperatures.
Also included with the LG X venture is Outdoor Essentials, an app that includes six tools. They are a barometer, compass, activity counter, exercise tracker, weather reporter, and flashlight. LG has also thrown in Glove Mode so that you can use the X venture without exposing your fingers to the elements.
When it comes to raw specs, the LG X Venture is running Android 7.0 on a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 display. It’s got a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera with a wide angle lens, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, a Snapdragon 435 processor, and 2GB of RAM. There’s a 4100mAh battery powering the whole package.
