Lovers of indestructible smartphones now have one more viable option to choose from, especially since at the moment it’s also on special offer: Oukitel Bison 2021 costs 132 euros, almost half the list price. But before we send you back to the offer, of which you will find details at the bottom of this article, we talk about its strengths.
Let’s start first of all with the features that make it different from traditional smartphones and that are instead part of the category of devices to which it belongs. Rugged means rugged and these phones are designed to withstand extreme conditions without the aid of a case. And in this sense it really is a bison (in English, precisely, bison):
The data sheet speaks first of all of an operational resistance in environments with a temperature between -20°C and 55°C and a scratch resistance of level 7 out of 10 on the Mohs scale, an empirical criterion for the evaluation of the hardness of materials that takes its name from the German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs, who invented it in 1812. To give some examples, in this scale the hardness of a fingernail is 2.2, of the tip of a steel knife from 5.1 to 5.5, of window glass from 5.6 to 6.5, of an iron file from about 6.5, of porcelain from 6 to 7; some types of ceramics, including stoneware, can reach hardness 8.
Other certifications include IP68, which means it resists dust and water ingress by withstanding immersion in water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. IP69K, the highest when it comes to resistance to pressure and temperature, and MIL-STD-810g which ensures complete resistance to falls on hard surfaces at a maximum height of 1.5 meters. All this resistance we find in a phone that measures 15.8 x 7.8 x 1.8 centimeters and weighs 230 grams.
Performance side, Oukitel Bison 2021 mounts an eight-core processor MediaTek Helio G25 flanked by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of capacity extendable via microSD up to an additional 256 GB (and simultaneously can accommodate up to 2 nano SIM). It mounts an 8,000 mAh battery rechargeable via USB-C with support for 18W fast charging that promises up to 145 hours of battery life in listening to music, or 34 hours in phone calls, 18 hours in watching videos or 11 hours in video games.
This phone offers Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and 4G connection, also mounts a triple location sensor that uses GPS, Glonass and Galileo for precise positioning on the map, the operating system is Android version 10 and the screen is 5.66″ with a resolution of 1,520 x 720 pixels with touch recognition with gloves by activating the appropriate mode.
