Rubber and glass

Thick rubber sidewalls and Gorilla Glass help protect the screen and internal components. The XP 3300 is military-certified to withstand extreme heat and cold, dust, humidity, drops, and other environmental conditions.

Glove control

The keys look a tad small, but are ridged in the middle to help workers wearing gloves find and press the buttons.

Screw-tight

Screws keep the back cover and microSD card in place, while seals below the cover form a tight fit to keep components from shifting in rough 'n' tumble conditions.

Screw-secured flaps protect the headset jack and charger ports from the elements. In addition, the sockets are waterproof.

Whoops

The phone is sturdy, not indestructible. Though 1.5 mm thick and able tot sustain drops up to 6.5 feet onto concrete, the strong Gorilla Glass screen didn't make it past our air-toss. The phone, however, still works, and there aren't any other scratches.
