DEWALT rugged Android smartphone review MD501


Need a tough smartphone for a jobsite? The DEWALT MD501 is designed to withstand abuse.
Full review:
DEWALT says it’s resistant to dust and particles and waterproof up to 30 minutes if immersed in 2m of water. It’s also resistent to chemical spills and vibrations and it’s tested to operate in temperatures from -20 °C to 60 °C. I stepped on my test model, dropped it on a floor numerous times and even chucked it in the snow and doused it in my hot tub. It’s still working great and in fact never even shut down for a moment. Watch my video for a look at the tests and how the phone fared.

DEWALT is of course best known for its power tool line. Now it’s got this Android phone that’s built so tough it doesn’t even need a case. The DEWALT MD501 also has a host of other features that are designed for job sites.
