About TUFF Phones


TUFF Phones is a UK based company specialising in the manufacture of high-quality tough, rugged mobile phones and tough smartphones.

TUFF Phones was established in 2010 and was originally a retailer of several brands of tough mobile phones.

In 2014, the company moved into the development of its own range of rugged smartphones in partnership with a device manufacturer in China. By early 2016, production work had begun on the first range, which was successfully launched later that year with the BBC covering our story as the devices began to hit the UK market.

Since then, our phone sales have been growing steadily. By the Spring of 2017, we had begun our second partnership with one of the longest established tier-one manufacturers of mobile devices with over 2000 employees and where we now have our own dedicated production line. Our second generation of devices was launched with the release of the T400s and the T1. A further device was then launched in September, the T10 and development work continues with the release of the T50, our first feature phone, expected in December 2017.

The T1 and T10 are game-changers. They look and feel like the beautifully engineered smartphone you would expect to see with a Samsung or Apple logo on them, yet they are built to withstand the rigours of life on a farm or construction site. These are phones that can be dropped from height without fear of the screen shattering, or immersed in water without being damaged, but they still look perfectly at home in a business meeting or a social gathering. Thanks in part to their titanium-aluminium alloy internal frames, these devices don’t need bulky plastic outers to make them rugged, and so they can take on a sleek appearance more akin to a regular smartphone.

All our devices are not only durable and look great – they perform superbly too. We now use powerful Sony CMOS camera sensors, Sharp IGZO high-resolution screens and powerful top-quality processors. We utilise the best military grade composite materials within the production process, high-quality shatterproof screens and have rigorous testing facilities at the manufacturing plant. All our devices are dual sim, with long lasting battery life, sizeable memory capability and recent Android operating software.

Our entire range of phones are great for builders, plumbers, scaffolders, painters, electricians, surveyors, farmers, military personnel, or indeed anyone whose work requires wireless communication within an easy to operate phone, but which will also survive the usual daily knocks, falls, scratches and bashes of these trades and professions.

We maintain a friendly, customer service approach and proudly provide unparalleled levels of service to our customers.
