What's the crack? To put it bluntly, there is no crack. And there never will be with this latest launch from the DOOGEE smartphone range.

The ultra-rugged S58 Pro will not be everyone's cup of tea, particularly those who like their phones to be light and as slim as a credit card.

But how often do you see someone brandishing such svelte devices, which they no doubt paid a lot of money for, ruining the big reveal as they pull from their pocket or handbag something that resembles a battered old Ford Cortina?

With the DOOGEE, all this embarrassment can be avoided because thanks to its ultra-sturdy and robust design, the S58 Pro will happily take on any challenge to stand the test of time while steering you well clear of the dreaded mobile repair shops.

Ideal for outdoor lovers (if you haven't guessed already), the S58 Pro is waterproof, dust-resistant and can survive extreme temperatures, as well as those inevitable frequent floor-drops. It's a bit like a loyal childhood friend, you're safe in the knowledge it will be with you every step of the way.

Unlike other phones, you will never need to protect it with an extra case as the high-strength rubber usually found on off-road vehicle tyres, with its many rigid layers and silicone lining, gives excellent shock absorption performance.

But it's definitely not just a case of brawn over brains and it would be wrong to underplay the S58 Pro's other remarkable features, including the impressive triple camera taking crisp and clear high definition pictures and videos.

It also boasts a large 5180mAh high-capacity battery supported by 12V/2A fast-charging and there's a MT6762V/Helio P22 Octa-Core CPU, 6GB super high-speed RAM and 64GB ROM which all runs on Android 10.

The fast-charging speed and large capacity means the phone can be used for up to three days with normal use, eliminating the need to carry a power bank on short breaks away from home.

Featuring a unique futuristic space look, it's also ideal phone for those working outside or taking part in outdoor pursuits such as climbing and can be used without worry while underwater or in extra humid environments.

A bit like the phone equivalent of a deep sea diver, it can be submerged in water up to a depth of one metre for up to 24 hours and can also withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, so it's ideal whether you're on a ski trip or desert safari.

Available in army green, fire orange and mineral black, the S58 Pro is DOOGEE's toughest phone to date and it all comes at a very reasonable £189.99 from Amazon UK.
