And so I bought a Toughphone (FZ-E1)

#1 Post by Rob »

Hey "y'all".

I got a Toughpad FZ-E1!!! w00t! It's the Windows 8.1 model (Still trying to figure out how to use this stupid thing...)

I don't have any more left (Only had 2 units, ones a demo and the other is for me also for demo).

It's a TANK! The battery is impossible to kill too! :)

If anyone wants pics, let me know.

Thanks!

Can't wait to get my custom holster from Jeff for this but in the mean time I ordered the cheesy case that Panasonic has

It’s thick enough to fit TWO of my brick phones in…. What in the HELL was Panasonic thinking…………………

Thanks!

Amazing. How long does the battery last?

You could use it as a self defense weapon. :D

Battery is endless.... I talk 5000 minutes/month and I could get 2 days out of it!

I don't have it any more. I went back to a 2G dumb phone to regain my personal life. Best decision ever :)

Hi Rob,

couldn't agree more regarding the dumbphone and regaining life back - no more "opportunity cost" pressure.
My only real smartphone killer feature used to be navigation - that's why I clicked a GPS module for my cf19.

I'm thinking about getting one of the older (black/white lcd) Sonim phones.
Which dumbphone do you use/recommend?

I'm on GSM, not CDMA. I used to like the pre-android RAZR phones, but new batteries are improbable to get.

BR,
Karl Klammer
