    Welcome to Android Central! CAT is probably the best known brand for rugged phones: https://www.catphones.com/en-gb/. AGM is another: https://www.agmmobile.com/. I would be very cautious with any off-brand or no-name phone direct-from-China.

    Nokia XR20

    Not sure of your use case, but putting out the rugged case alternative, as well

    Another vote for Nokia XR20, I have one and it's pretty rugged. It gets 4 years of security updates and 3 years of OS updates. The only thing that they should have done is use a faster processor. Other than that, it's a good everyday phone. It's meant to last at least 4 years. Good luck

    Such is the case with most, if not all rugged themed phones. It's a niche market to begin with, so they have to make tradeoffs to keep them price competitive. You won't get the latest and greatest of everything in addition to the added protection.

    If the OP wants top end specs plus extra durability, I suggest getting the phone with the specs they want, then a protective case for impact protection.

    I'd avoid Doogee. They're maybe a step above the terrible no-name "Welcome" phones from Wish, but support will be minimal from the manufacturer.
