The Taho has a comfortable feel in the hand, and we like the spacious and easy-to-use controls.

You can give the rugged Taho a shower or even dunk it in water for up to a half hour.

The volume rocker, speakerphone control, and Micro-USB port sit on its left spine. The latter is protected by a rubber flap.

The camera lens and flash sit on its rear side. A ring around the lens protects it when the phone is resting on a table. Also, you'll need to open the locking switch at the bottom of the battery cover to access the battery and microSD memory card.
