Our Q&A summary of the week, covers everything Raptor this week!. Keep the questions rolling in @ruggedandmobile or using #RAMQQ or using Facebook.
1.How does the Raptor R4 size screen compare to other devices in the rugged market?
It has a 4.5″ screen with qHD resolution of 960×540. Typically we see rugged devices that run Android have 4.3″ screens running WVGA at 800 x 480 resolution or even the 3.5″ VGA screens that Windows Mobile likes.
2. What sized battery does a typical smartphone have?
Well the iPhone has a 1540mAh battery size, the Samsung Galaxy S4 had a 2600mAh battery and the S5 has a standard battery size of 2800mAh. My Samsung note 3 has a 3200mAh battery but that has to run a 6″ screen. Battery is one of the most demanded quality indicators that a business mobile solution needs.
3. Does the Raptor R7 have a phone?
The R7 has 3G and a phone as standard making it more of a “phablet” than a tablet. The 3G will be useful for syncing data over your mobile network but using it as a phone might be a push unless you use the provided headset.
4. Can I use a BT headset with the R7?
Yes you can, it even has AD2P streaming for your music if you want!
5. How do the dual SIMs work? I had them on an old Nokia phone and they were rubbish.
Well Android handles dual SIM much better. You put any 2 SIM cards in your device, say your business SIM and your personal one. The phone will then simply receive calls on either of them but tells you as the call comes in. If you want to make calls then you have 2 call buttons, just tap the number and hit the right green key!
6. I noticed the Raptor R4 isn’t drop tested to MILSTD-810G does that make any difference?
not really. MILSTD, although it is useful as a standard, is just that. It’s a standard that some manufacturers test against and some don’t. We drop test everything here we sell anyway to double-check it works and this is done to MILSTD-810G or H.
7. Do I get Warranty+ free with any Raptor?
Yes you do. They’re well and truly loved, cared for and looked after via the warranty+ service. For many this is all you need.
I’ve had to limit this week to the top 5 due to time but keep sending those questions in, use #RAMQQ on twitter @ruggedandmobile or just email them in.
