Tough smartphones for adventurers-Travel Tech Series Third Edition

Smartphones, which connect every corner in the world together have come a long way in development and innovation. In the past, the concept of phones was limited to tin cans joined by a string. Smartphones have now become so technologically advanced that the average smartphone is said to have better computer powers than NASA had for the moon mission in the 1960s. Each day, a new smartphone innovation is developed adding yet another feature to an already endless list of features. An app to share what you are doing(facebook), what you are feeling(twitter), where you are(foursquare), what you are eating(Instagram), and so on.

There is no doubt that new smartphones are now incredibly technologically advanced and undoubtedly travel tech. However, they are not particularly known for durability, specially if you are fond of adventurous sports such as trekking, hiking, mountain biking, etc. What’s the use of a highly advanced smartphone if it bends in your pant pocket?
