The Nokia 3720 classic is tough as old boots… filled with cement. We tried to destroy it in a number of innovative ways, but it just kept on working – watch our videos as we attempt to drown it in jelly, smack it with a golf club, and play rugby with it (3720 rugged phone videos). Built to IP-54 standards, the 3720 classic is designed to resist water, dust and shock. So needless to say this hard handset can go almost anywhere you can, without protective casings or bags.
Drop it from a ladder, dunk it in a drink or boot it into the distance and it will keep on working, thanks to internally sealed electronics and a durable case. Unlike previous rugged phones, the stylish Nokia 3720 is as small (just 15mm thin) and light (94g) as a regular candy bar mobile, and comes packed with essential features, including a 2MP camera, media player, web browsing, email and Bluetooth. The 3720 isn’t just tough – it’s long lasting too, with a massive seven hours’ of talk time from a battery secured behind a solid screw-locking cover.
What they say
“A handset that can stand a lot of torture but feels at home in more sophisticated environments, too”
If you only do one thing
Get on with your life without worrying about your phone. Torrential downpours, dusty building sites, clumsy kids – the Nokia 3720 can soak up almost any punishment real life has to offer. How many phones can you simply rinse off when they get dirty?
The Nokia 3720 has waterproofing that keeps it safe from serious splashes and dunks – but nothing like these deep divers.
Nuno Gomes holds the world record for the deepest scuba dive, at 318.25 metres.
Cuvier’s beaked whale ventures the deepest of any mammal, down to depths of 2000 metres.
Fish can survive even further down. A sample of Abyssobrotula galatheae was recorded in the Atlantic’s Puerto Rican Trench at a depth of 8372 meters (over five miles down).
In 1960, a Swiss oceanographer and a US Navy lieutenant inside an experimental submarine called Trieste reached the lowest point on the Earth’s surface – the base of the Pacific’s Mariana Trench, 10916 metres beneath sea level.
