The original Toughphone Defender has now been discontinued.

Please refer to the new Defender 2

Defender Overview

The Defender smartphone is a certified IP68 device which means it has been manufactured to resist both liquid and particle ingress to the highest level. The Defender's robust chassis has been engineered to withstand the harshest of impacts and drops, plus it also features a toughened screen that is scratch resistant. It is so tough that it has been certified as Mil-Spec 810g rated.

The Defender is the perfect smartphone for people who work or pass through remote or industrial environments on a regular basis.

Powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor and 1GB RAM in conjunction with Android 4.4 for a lag free system, you can be confident of a smooth experience with a host of modern features available to hand.

Download your favourite applications from the Google Play store and customise your smartphone to your needs. The Defender also comes pre-loaded with Toughphone’s SOS alert app and a selection of outdoor tools including Altimeter, Pedometer, Compass and more.

4GB of internal storage will ensure that you can run plenty of worthwhile and useful applications, without issue. Expanding the memory is an option too, with a microSD card slot present for up to 64GB which will allow you to fill it full of your favourite music, pictures and videos.

Dual SIM

You can run two active SIM cards, simultaneously, with the Defender. This is great for people who work in areas that may have a poor signal on one network compared to home, or those that run a business with a separate number and need to be in contact at all times. Running your personal and business lines from the same device is extremely convenient; saving you time, space and hassle.


The Defender benefits from Near Field Communication technology. NFC is commonly used around the world for anything from simple Bluetooth pairing to contactless payments in stores. NFC is also being used to help manage workforces and field engineers to ensure compliance and confirm physical locations in remote areas.

Push To Talk and Walkie Talkie are functions that are sure to please many, especially those workmen that require constant contact on a site, or rig, for instance. The Defender comes with an external aerial that can be used for short to medium range RF communications. The PTT function is perfect for a team of individuals as they can all communicate on the same channel allowing everybody to stay connected.

The Defender toughphone is the perfect answer for those that require a sturdy, robust and reliable smartphone but at the same don't wish to compromise on modern features.
