The BLU Tank Xtreme 5.0 is built to withstand everything you throw at it


If you’re in the market for a rugged smartphone that can withstand almost all the elements, then you’ll want to check out the BLU Tank Xtreme 5.0. The device was just launched on Amazon for $130, and may be one of the best rugged smartphone option that isn’t from Samsung.

The device definitely won’t any “smartphone of the year awards“, due it’s subpar spec sheet. However, when looking for a super rugged device, you likely just need something to withstand the elements.
