Ruggedized handsets are all the rage these days. Sony’s flagship Xperia Z has a waterproof and dustproof design. Sammy is also reportedly looking to bring its own rugged Galaxy S4 Active to the market. That’s…

This means the LG Optimus L2, Optimus L3, Optimus L5, and Optimus L7 have all packed their bags and headed down under. Let’s start from the bottom of the phone pyramid and make our way up.
