So, keep your eyeballs attached to this article as more about the born-tough Nomu S10 will be brought to your screen.


Nomu S10’s design is rugged, there’s no better word to describe it. It’s frame on the edges and its metallic nature all make up the smartphone’s toughness. The top and bottom bezels are all thick, and while the top bezels houses the front camera, ambient light sensor and earpiece, the bottom bezel houses nothing. Dedicated keys on the smartphone are the power button and the volume keys. At the rear, the “nomu” logo and the single camera are the notable occupants located. It comes in Orange and Black colours.

The camera department of this smartphone has a dual nature, that is, one at the front and one at the rear. The front camera has a 2MP shooter with an f/2.4 aperture for taking selfies.

  1. First, the delivery speed is very fast. It surprised me when I opened the box. Cool appearance, clean system, few factory software, so that I didn’t need to uninstall unnecessary software. The next is the good battery performance, 49% electricity, only consumes 1% for the first night. What a surprise! Haven’t tested the rugged function, but think it ok considering the exquisite workmanship.

  2. NOMU is famous for high-quality rugged phone. It has produced rugged phone for years. The phone is very professional, and very reliable. I’m a royalty fan of NOMU, support the sale, support NOMU.

  3. The navigation ability is very good, I can get a very precise positioning even in the remote region. And the signal is also good. Case of receiving no signal never happened yet. Like it.

  4. My work environment is not good, and this phone is perfect for me. My workmate has already bought it. It has very strong drop-proof and water-proof functions. I believe it will be durable and have longer service life.
