Vodacom Now!

1. Sony Xperia M2 Aqua

The recently announced Sony Xperia M2 Aqua, exclusively available to Vodacom, is ideal for heading into nature. With an IP65 and IP68 rating, the handset is both dust- and waterproof. The handset can weather a trip to the desert or a dip in the pool –  provided all the ports are firmly closed. It’s also capable of taking photos and videos in 1.5m-deep freshwater for up to 30 minutes. The Xperia M2 Aqua has a metallic frame, aluminium power button and comes in black, white or copper.

The Sony Xperia M2 will be available in black, white and copper – the copper colour is exclusive to Vodacom.

2. Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

The Galaxy S4 Active smartphone is a good choice for weekend outdoor enthusiasts, including hikers, trail runners and nature lovers. This is by no means an indestructible device, but it is dust- and waterproof. Aqua Mode is good for underwater shots – but you’ll have to use the volume key to shoot as the touchscreen doesn’t work well when submerged. This is great Android device with a fun, flashy design.

3. CAT B15

If you need a phone that can handle extreme conditions, the CAT B15 is the only choice. It’s impact resistant, dust- and waterproof and can survive a 1.8m fall onto solid concrete. The B15 handles extreme weather conditions from -25°C to 55°C, and can be submerged in 1m-deep water for up to 30 minutes. Other outdoor features include an LED flash camera, bigger speakers with a noise-cancelling dual microphone, and a shock-absorbent rubber exterior.
