The Guophone V88 smartphone is a budget friendly rugged smartphone that has been launched by Guophone. The company also stated that this is one of the cheapest rugged smartphone around, even though it has IP68 certifications.
As stated above, Guophone focused more on the rugged aspect of the device, than its specs. It comes with just 8GB storage and 1GB RAM, there’s a Quad-Core processor underneath and an 8MP rear shooter. Lets see what else the Guophone V88 has to offer.
In this article we talk about:
You will definitely know it’s a rugged smartphone at first glance, there’s a combination of Polycarbonate and Metal at the rear. This forms a solid and strong body to actively repell all shock and dusts. Overall it’s available in Black with Yellow or Green finishing.
It’s also water resistant, but don’t even think about leaving it underwater for more than 15 minutes. At the top, we can see the rear camera with the LED flash right beside it. It measures 14.5mm in thickness and weighs 197g overall.
The V88 is built around a smaller screen, which will definitely not appeal big screen lovers. On the top, the top bezels are very thick with no important feature on it. The screen could have been a little bit taller if the top bezels doesn’t exist.
The tiny 4-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is small obviously, but not that bad as well. It boasts of 540 x 960 pixels in resolution and 275 pixel per inch density for clear enough visuals. Apart from dishing out a 16:9 aspect ratio, it stretches up to 55% screen to body ratio as well.
