Technically Tough 800 repeats 2720 Flip. Here the same operating system and similar hardware. However, distinguished its case. The device is inside some sort of capsule. It is protected from dust and water according to the IP68 standard, from falls and blows to military standard MIL-STD-810G.

Is there anyone among our readers those who are still using push-button phones? Please share your impression from the list above or suggest better options if you have them, of course. Although I, in truth, I doubt it. The list could include Light Phone 2, for example, but it is a start-up project and to buy such device will be not so easy. The E-Ink screens, in my opinion, are ideal for use in similar phones, but, unfortunately, decent options on the Russian market is not observed.
