Priced at just $130 USD, this rugged and water-resistant handset is powered by a MediaTek processor, next to 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, coming loaded with Android Marshmallow.

The latest handset by BLU Products is a budget product that comes with a shock-absorbent case that is also water-resistant. Sadly, its specs are low-end, but the Tank Xtreme 5.0 could be quite useful as a backup device or when its user needs to face tough environments.

BLU Tank Xtreme 5.0 has the following specs and features:

  • Connectivity: 3G dual-SIM, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB 2.0, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • Dimensions: 6.04X3.14X0.54 inches
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh

This handset is certified to comply with the IP65 standard, being able to handle dust, rain, and water splashes. However, it is not intended to survive prolonged immersion in water.

BLU Tank Xtreme 5.0 can be acquired via Amazon for a regular price of $129.92 USD, but sometimes it is offered for $99 USD during short periods.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
