JCB Pro-talk Touchscreen Toughphone

 

We were big fans of JCB's budget Tradesmen, so how does the flagship model fair?

The builder's toolbox is no place for an iPhone. This is the domain of the hardest handset on the planet – the JCB Toughphone

Barring a direct hit from a V2, the Toughphone is virtually indestructible – the perfect burly blower for builders and tradesmen alike

JCB Toughphone Review

 

Yes a phone just for builders, well maybe plumbers as well. When you want a mobile that can fall down stairs and get covered in gunk your choice is quite limited. We test the Toughphone from the toughest name in construction JCB.

Not a happy owner of the JCB Pro talk

Unhappy

 

Bought this - it broke easily under normal use - charger pins/socket shattered. Looking for a refund but none forthcoming - sent a replacement but why would I want one when they fail in such a fundamental fashion.
