      I liked that announcement ! but i think ip68 should be standarized soon: …i am not really thrilled with the possibility of getting this k10000 broken as soon as arrived 🙁 they should try to compete with AGM in rugged economic phones :S i mean… have you seen the annoucement of the x2 ? its crazy!!

    Cool rugged one, BV ! well; dont surprise me anymore : now that Samsung is not longer the best PPR (good value for your money), now IS best to get shipped from China ( loving my Agm 🙂 )

    I have an A8 AGM (i think is better xP ) but I admire the “PPR” approach that BV is trying to give to its medium lines: realistic competition and fair price is something that could desaturate the market dominated by overpriced cof cof – cof iphone – Cof – Sansumg- cof cof … But again: an android 7 , ip68, strong battery, durable Phone for 160e ?? A-MA-ZING!
