It's not the small pocket-able phone I was expecting, but there is a lot of rugged casing there so I can forgive that. KaiOS is still very much under development and the store is limited but growing. If you thought that this system would free you from Google I'm afraid that it's pretty well embedded (they are investors in KaiOS), but that does provide some useful functionality. Google Maps are handy but there's no voice guidance so not much use when driving. I will update in a couple of weeks to let you know how it's going. UPDATE : After a few charge cycles, the phone is still performing well, and in terms of standby time with Bluetooth and WiFi turned off and with very little use, but the occasional session as a WiFi hotspot it will hold it's charge for around ten days which is still pretty epic. Not sure where their claims of a month come from, but still very happy.
For the first 10 days it worked absolutely fine up until day 11, where it wouldn't turn on, charge or connect to a computer. I used the cables and charger provided. Clearly not as tough as it claims. Very poor.
The main problem, honestly, is that it resets itself so often. It keeps powering down and resetting itself every hour or ninety minutes or so. If only that particular bug could be ironed out, I would definitely recommend this rugged little phone.

Aside from a terrible HTC smartphone ten years ago, I have stuck to owning 'feature' phones. I have mostly used Sony Ericsson C510s bought second hand on eBay as they have always worked well on car bluetooth and have a decent media player and sound quality. However, the lack of any internet and the short life of the buttons made me think I should upgrade. I didn't want a smartphone as they are often fragile and don't work in extreme environments. This meant that the Nokia 800 Tough looked to be a good proposition with its basic internet function and the bonus of a stripped-down Whatsapp.
However, it feels like Nokia haven't really put much into the development of this phone. I know it caters for a niche market but I expected it all to be an upgrade from my trusty C510. However, in many respects, the C510 (a very old phone) outdoes the 800 Tough.
Battery life on the 800 Tough is excellent. With average use, it lasts for at least two days if not longer. Call quality is good aside from a volume issue early on which seems to have been resolved. It is obviously a tough phone (which may be why it is so large) and is apparently fully waterproof although I haven't tested this. It also works in low temperatures which is great. The internet function is very useful but difficult to use (it was never going to be great on a feature phone). The torch is good and bright although it does flicker whilst the screen is on. Screen brightness is good. It also has a micro SD expansion slot.
However, the positives end there.
The first small annoyance is the Nokia startup jingle. It is overly loud and can't be turned off.
The text message function looks and feels like it is directly copied from the first ever mobile phone. It is very hard to use and several things such as the add words function are almost pointless due to being so terrible.
The address book is again, archaic-looking and very slow and hard to use.
Whatsapp works better than the text message function but is still not as good as I was expecting. I have no problem with the lack of Whatsapp voice and video calls but the rest of it is a little clunky.
The camera is truly awful. Anything other than the steady hand of a surgeon and bright (not too bright) sunlight and the photos are blurry. Likewise, the video quality is awful (and the format is 3GPP which is the same as the C510!).
The music player is more basic than the one on my C510. Unlike the one on the C510, if you close the app, it resets itself rather than pausing the track that was playing. I presume this is to reduce memory usage but it is annoying. It can be avoided by pressing the back button several times to leave the app open. However, resetting the phone causes the app to stop (unlike on the C510). The player also dos not recognise wma files.
I had a similar issue with the alarm clock sometimes not sounding until I realised that I had to press the back button rather than just closing the app.
The phone has a wifi function and can be used for internet sharing but not for wifi calling which seems like a big oversight.
The app store is limited which is to be expected. The pdf viewers on the store seemed to work initially but have now stopped recognising my SD card.
The bluetooth is also not great. It is possible to get my laptop and van to remember the phone, but it will often fail to automatically reconnect, or if it does, the sound will not transfer to the van speakers. I often have to turn on the van or laptop, then turn off the bluetooth function on the phone and turn it back on again for it to properly connect.
The phone frequently struggles to perform basic tasks and often slows or freezes. It occasionally resets itself but not as much as I feared it might. I don't know much about the kaios operating system so can't really comment on it.
Unfortunately, I fear I will have to give in to the inevitable and ditch the 800 Tough in favour of a small rugged smartphone. I tried desperately to be impressed by the 800 Tough, but how can I be when it feels like Nokia gave up on it before it was even released.
