UHANS K5000: Military-Grade Rugged Phone with 5000 mAh Battery
New smartphones may have highly efficient hardware or really good cameras, but when it comes to resistance to external elements, they can’t match rugged phone designed to work in harsh conditions. Meet the new UHANS K5000 with a powerful 5000 mAh battery, that has the best protection you can imagine.

UHANS K5000: Pros and Cons

Manufacturer compares this smartphone to an amphibious animal – like a crocodile. And it’s not an inaccurate comparison at all. The UHANS K5000 can stay under water up to 5 meters for half an hour, which is excellent result compared to other rugged phones like previously reviewed Ulefone Armor 2. IP68 cover is completely dustproof so even if you drop the phone into sand, it will still be as good as new. And that’s not all that can be told about its ruggedness: the special rubber casing thickens its protection even more. While it doesn’t look too elegant, giving it barrel-like appearance, it efficiently protects the delicate hardware from falls up to 1.5 meter. Screen is protected by the latest Gorilla Glass 4. It’s very resistant to cracks and scratches, although of course it’s not indestructible.
Display and performance
This is not a high-performance smartphone and it doesn’t have the best touchscreen, but it certainly does the job. MTK6753 Octa Core 1.3GHz belongs to the line of older processors, so you will not be able to run the most demanding games and apps on this phone, but the user interface itself, the browser and the media player work smoothly and you won’t have any complaints.
The 5-inch screen displays at a resolution of 1080 x 720 px, which is also below average, even among rugged smartphones. However, the lower number of pixels, the lower the energy consumption, and thus longer battery life – and this is one of the most important feats for similar smartphones, so we believe it’s a conscious decision by the designers.
Camera and other features
UHANS K5000 has surprisingly good cameras. We didn’t expect much, but the 13.0MP + 8.0MP combo is really good. Rear camera has SONY sensor, which can be typically found in more expensive smartphones. Both cameras make really nice photos with high color saturation and various software modes like HDR, so it will be ideally shooting photos from your exotic travels. Instant autofocus ensures that even pictures taken on the move should look superb.
Fingerprint reader located on the back is fast and works at a 360 degree angle. This allows you to instantly unlock the screen in a fraction of a second, while increasing data security.
5000 mAh battery won’t let you down in any situation. This lithium-polymer cell will work a few days on a single charge, depending on intensity of use. This is especially true as the processor is energy-efficient, and advanced features of Android 7.0 disable unused applications. Finally, here is a phone that you can take to your wilderness trip out of the grid!
If you’re looking for a durable rugged phone, UHANS K5000 might be your best pick. It doesn’t have the best hardware performance-wise and it’s quite hefty, but this kind of smartphone doesn’t need to be pretty. This is a water, dust and shock resistant phone that won’t fail you in any troubles.
