Doogee S40 product impressions: A super-tough phone for just $120

Phones like the $1,000 Cat S61 and the $800-plus Land Rover Explore are excellent choices, but not everyone has a budget that can accommodate such extravagances.

A tough design with plenty of strength

It goes without saying that a solid and strong build is key in a rugged phone, and thankfully, the S40 delivers that in spades.

I dropped the S40 onto a variety of materials to test the MIL-STD-810G drop-resistance, and it came away without a scratch each time.

I didn’t come across any situations where I needed to press it, but it could certainly come in handy if you come a cropper while adventuring.

However, this isn’t a sleek smartphone by any stretch, and there are large bezels around the display and a raised edge around the outside.
