Motorola i355 (Nextel)

 

Rugged handset protects against drops and resists rain, dust, and heat; Direct Connect, Group Connect, and Direct Talk functionality; speakerphone.

Big, bulky, and heavy; keys are tough to press; low color-display resolution.

The supertough Nextel Motorola i355 might be big and bulky, but it won't have any trouble surviving the elements.

Editor's Choice!

Motorola i355

 

The ultimate wilderness phone, the Nextel i335 combines a GPS, cell phone, and walkie-talkie in a rugged, water-resistant package. And it costs under $100 with a service plan ($249.99 without). That makes it our Editors' Choice for rugged phones.

Great price. Off-network walkie-talkie. Very rugged

Bulky

This cell phone is an excellent communication tool for those who work (or play) outdoors.

Arbico OC i355 CS review

 

The OC i355 CS is housed in a Cooler Master case, with steel construction that felt particularly sturdy. Arbico has relied on the Intel Core i3-530's integrated graphics chip, which leaves the single PCI-E x16 slot free to add a dedicated graphics card...

Connectivity might be limited, but the impressive performance and excellent upgrade potential make the OCi355 CS a great base to build from.

Do not get this phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

works 80% of the time

It is too big and bulky. The programming sucks and the thing freezes up very frequently

"This is definitely a man's phone"

 

I have no complaints about my i355...except, don't let your friend slam the roll-up door on it several times in a rental truck before realizing it. I did have to have it replaced then, however

large, fits in hand, extreme durability

Since something has to go here, I would have to say the holster. After some time, it wears out some, then jolts and jumps send it flying to the ground

I'm not a fan of the flimsy foldups so I decided to give this phone a try. I have to say it feels rugged, acts rugged and is rugged. I've dropped mine onto concrete from about 5 feet and saw no damage and it worked perfectly. Rain, sleet and snow...

Rugged, all the way
