Doogee S97 Pro

The Doogee S97 Pro packs a comprehensive feature set into a durable design. It's larger and heavier than many rugged phones, has questionable long-term software support, and lacks the very best protection ratings, but the handy laser rangefinder, exceptional battery life, and overall quality control upgrade over the brand's previous devices make it an easy pick for budget-conscious buyers working in tough environments.

Retail price: $399.00
