Talking about Nokia is synonymous with many things. The Finnish company copied the best-selling terminal tables for a long time. However, if there is something for which the company has stood out, voluntarily or not, it has been for the resistance of its terminals. Surely those who are reading these lines will have crossed at some time with a comment or mem about the resistance of one of the flagships of the brand in the past, the Nokia 3310. Picking up that witness, the company not only launched new revisions of this and other classic terminals, but has launched its new feature phone (phone without touch screen, oriented to very simple tasks) ultra-rugged, the Nokia 800 Tough.

Nokia 800 Tough, ultra-resistant and with an «infinite» battery
Although the current Nokia (brand exploited by HMD Global) has little to do with the one that launched best-selling 3310 or the original 8110, much more focused on the Android smartphone market, does not neglect feature phone (also called colloquially "dumb phones"). There is a whole user market that, although for lack of economic solvency in developing markets or for not using it more than calling and little else, they still use these types of devices. However, more and more is appearing a sector of users who bet on this type of terminals, in its ultra-resistant version, to perform sports activities. And it is right there where this Nokia 800 Tough fits.
In addition to its resistance, one of the key points that highlights this 800 Tough is its operating system. KaiOS it is a system designed for «bring the functionality of the smartphone to the feature phone«, In the words of its own developers. In fact, we have a wide variety of Google applications adapted to these types of resolutions and phones without a touch screen, such as Google Maps (which makes perfect sense in this type of terminals), Youtube, Google Assistant or others as famous as Facebook, Whatsapp or Twitter. We have an application store called KaiStore, which has more and more applications every day.
In addition to this, other aspects that have been most emphasized (as we will see in the full specification sheet) have been the battery, since they promise us up to 43 days standby counting on the activated 4G and GPS connections, which is certainly to be admired. We will have to see the final result, but they are impressive figures, more being used to having to go through the charger every day or every day and a half with current smartphones.
Nokia 800 Tough, full specifications
Although we do not have, as we have previously been able to intuit with the selection of operating system, we do not have infarct specifications. However, this does not mean that these are not more than competent in the sector to which it is intended. The complete specification sheet is as follows:
- screen: 2,4 »(QVGA resolution).
- CPU: Qualcomm 205 (dual core).
- RAM: 512 MB
- Storage internal: 4 GB, applicable with MicroSD up to 32GB.
- Rear camera: 2 Mpx with LED flash.
- OS: KaiOS.
- Connectivity: 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.
- Drums: 2100 mAh
- Dimensions: 145.4 x 62.1 x 16.11 mm.
- Weight: 161 grams
- Certificate IP68 and Standard MIL-STD-810G of resistance to water, dust and falls.
- Others: FM radio, 3.5 jack jack, built-in flashlight …
As we have seen, the specifications level is relatively fair for current standards, but his true strength is in the resistance. Not only does it guarantee that it is resistant to water and dust (something relatively common in today's smartphones), but it also complies with the military standard MIL-STD-810G (with which they have LG terminals, for example) of resistance and operation, which ensures that, no matter how crushed the phone is, this swill continue to operate in a wide range of extreme situations. In addition, from HMD they have assured that it is capable of supporting falls from 1.8m as if nothing. As we can see, it is the perfect mobile for those who seek resistance without equal, without losing excessive functionalities.
