Reverse side of the back cover revels the latch that secures the waterproof seal. You may or may not need this level of protection while you work but one study done back in 2011 in the UK indicated, that from all the mobile phones damaged by water, 47% were dropped accidentially in the toilet...

B15Q offers the possibility to use dual SIM cards. Storage capacity can be increased by using a MicroSD card (max. 64 GB).

 

The screen

The 4" screen with the wvga resolution of 480x800. One could argue that this is way too low resolution for a modern device and for an average multimedia user this would be true. You can surf the web on this, you can manage your contacts, email etc, you can watch movies etc.

For the target group, the screen should be acceptable. As the B15Q is not the cheapest phone around, I would have loved to see a higher resolution screen on this but that would have increased the price even further. For people looking for a rugged device, there are usually some compromises to be made, this time it is the screen.

Gorilla glass on B15Q seems to be doing its job nicely. We dropped the phone from around 1.3 meters and it survived the drop with no ill effects.
