  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.
