  1. Ulefone device is a real Tank, looks more like a beast. The way it’s built, definitely a rugged phone. It will cost a lot here in Nigeria, not just because of how strong its looks, it also got massive features in it.

  2. If you have this rugged phone with those nice specs that can weather any storm as described, do u still need another phone? No.
