AGM M7 rugged phone review: Affordable rugged retro phone goes back to basics

 Quoted from zdnet.com by Eileen | May 12, 2021 PROS ✓Extremely loud 3.5W speaker ✓Very simple to use ✓Waterproof and shockproof CONS ✕Few options for customization ✕Low-resolution camera The AGM M7 rugged phone will survive most accidents, is easy to use, and with its 3.5W speaker, you will never miss a call again. The form factor of the AGM M7 Android phone will take you back if you remember early mobile phones. Reminiscent of an old Nokia 3110 classic, this rugged device has pushable number keys, a navigation button, and a removable battery. Remember those? Yet, under the hood, this Android phone has all the features you need for a simplified mobile phone experience. The AGM M7 has a MediaTek MT6739 processor and runs a simplified version of Android 8.1. The phone comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, and there is a removable 2,500mAH battery behind two layers of casing for extra protection from water ingress. Behind the battery, there is space for three cards: Two SIMs and a microSD card slot for cards up to 128GB. It is 4G too, but if you have two SIMs, installed you can only have 4G on one of these cards and 2G on the other.  Be aware that there is a plastic film between the battery and the contacts which you need to remove before you can initially use the phone. The AGM is a rugged IP68 phone which is waterproof at depths up to 1.5m for up to 30 meters and will stand a drop up to 2m onto concrete. In the box, there is the phone, a USB Type-C to audio connecting cable, and a USB charging cable. Additionally, you can purchase a retro desktop charging dock to stand your phone in when not in use. The camera is basic but functional. The rear camera is 2MB, and the front camera is 0.3MB. There is no flash for either camera. Although this is far too low resolution for camera geeks, is it is perfectly adequate for people who do not want the fancy bells and whistles common to other phones but want a rugged phone that does basic tasks. The AGM M7 comes preinstalled with a few consumer apps. You get WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype, TikTok, and Zello. Turn the M7 on and quickly get to the home screen. You do not have to go through the process of adding your Google Account, and all of the other configuration features. Turn the phone on and get the home screen immediately. Clear the cache by long-pressing the star (asterisk) key for three seconds. There is a large orange user-defined key on the left-hand side of the phone which can be configured for a few different actions such as Zello push to talk, invoking the camera, turning on the LED torch, or starting audio. If you like your music loud, then you will be really impressed with the M7. There is a 3.5W speaker on the back of this relatively small phone. And it is loud. Any elderly relative will have no problems hearing this phone ring, and music will reach anyone within a large radius of the phone. I like the simplicity of this M7, and I like its rugged exterior. It has navigation by either key or touch, swiping, or touch press. For anyone with sausage fingers, misdialing will become a thing of the past. I miss my email app, and Google Play is not installed on the phone to add other apps, but I probably use social media on my phone more than email anyway. I can use the cable to sync my calendars and the Chrome browser is installed so I can get to webmail if I really need to. For a simplified rugged phone, the AGM M7 really has most of the features that I probably need -- and a superbly loudspeaker if I'm in a noisy environment, or start losing my hearing. The keys are comforting and the phone is easy to use -- albeit a little basic -- but it would certainly suit the needs of several of my older friends. If your aging parents want a basic phone with push buttons and a simple interface, then buy them the AGM M7 for under $100. It will survive most accidents, is easy to use, and they will never miss a call from you again.

The AGM A9 is a tough adventurer with four JBL speakers and 5400mAh battery

After the first drop-certified rugged phone with Snapdragon 845, the X3, AGM decided to bring the successful formula downmarket with the A9. It still sports a Snapdragon chipset, but of the midrange variety, while retaining and at times even improving on the X3's features, all in order to bring the price down to just $330. The brand new A9 is MIL-STD-810G and IP68-certified, which are the highest ratings for any smartphone that comes in the "rugged" category. As with the previous AGM products, this model also is waterproof, shock-proof, dust-proof and ice-proof. It is said to withstand a drop test of five feet and remain underwater up to the same depth while being 99% dust-proof.AGM A9 is powered by a long-standing 5400 mAh battery that is sure to offer longer functionality because of the low battery consumption of the midrange 14nm chipset that comes packing an X9 category LTE modem. It also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which recharges the phone way faster than usual.  The large 6" display comes with a 1080x2160 pixels resolution and 500 nits of peak brightness offering a clear display even in brightly lit environments. The 12MP rear camera and the 16MP front one are designed to take beautiful pictures in dimly-lit environments, with special emphasis on portrait optimization. The graphics subsystem supports real-time Bokeh camera effects, too. The collaboration with JBL brings about the quadruple JBL-tuned speakers offering "three-dimensional" sound which is a first of its kind. The dual-mic noise reduction ensures the unwanted noise is largely offset and offers better audio quality for conversations and recording. Tune in to your favorite radio stations without having the need for an external antenna or headset to be connected as it comes with a built-in antenna. In colder areas of operation of the device, at times when it is essential to wear gloves, the A9 does not require one to take them off as it supports a glove mode, which means one can wear mittens and still conveniently operate the device. Overall, the AGM A9 is a release that gives a brand new experience of smart rugged phones for adventurists and regular users alike. It is now hitting shelves, raising expectations for rugged phone enthusiasts.  The price is pegged at $299.99 for the 3GB RAM + 32 GB ROM version and $339.99 for the 4 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM one. When you buy the A9 from AGM's official store, you get the opportunity to win free JBL Headset worth $149 and many more exciting discounts and gifts.

The AGM M5: indestructible feature phone to cover all your basic needs

  AGM Mobile is a company that specializes in building highly durable smartphones for professionals or active people who need a handset that can survive a… harsher lifestyle. Its products vary, going from feature phones that cover one’s basic modern needs to flagships that are both durable and affordable. The company’s newest device is the AGM M5. It sports the appearance of a simple feature phone thanks to its hardware keypad and 2.8-inch display. It runs a light version of Android, making sure you can run your essential apps and stay connected on the go. As such, it operates as a mix between a feature phone and a smartphone — you can use its hardware keys for ease of operation, but are also free to interact with its touchscreen. The AGM M5’s rugged shell is rated IP68 for ingress protection for both water and dust particles. To top it off, its outer shell is shock-proof and can take more than a couple of bumps in stride. On the inside, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 and 1 GB of RAM, with 8 GB of storage to load your essentials on to the device. The trunk holds a 2,500 mAh battery, which will keep the lights on for quite a long time, thanks to the power-saving hardware and the lightened version of Android on board.You will still get 4G connectivity as well as light versions of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Skype, optimized to work on the smaller screen and keypad input. All of this comes in a compact and light package, weighing in at 150g and measuring 155 x 63.4 x 16.4 mm. What else does AGM have planned? If feature phones are not your cup of tea, don’t worry. AGM is also planning to release a new flagship — the AGM X5, which will be rugged, powerful, and capable of 5G connectivity. For those that want more of a mid-range smartphone, look forward to the release of the AGM A10 — an affordable handset with the same rugged shell that AGM is famous for.

AGM is at MWC: super-durable phones coming to Europe, partnered with JBL for superior audio

AGM is an up-and-coming company, which specializes in rugged and durable handsets that you can take anywhere. Still, "rugged" does not need to mean "underpowered" and AGM understands this, which is why it has a few models in its portfolio, ranging from the budget-friendly AGM A9 to the flagship-grade AGM X3. Both of these phones have speakers tuned by JBL, and they sound loud, clear, and powerful compared to other handsets. Now, the companies have upgraded this partnership to co-branding the AGM phones, starting with the mid-range A9, which will now be known as the AGM A9 JBL. AGM is currently at MWC with a booth open for anyone who wishes to check out the aforementioned devices and hear those JBL-tuned speakers in action. The company would also like to proudly announce its entry into the European markets through its UK-based webshop — agmmobile.co.uk. It is live now and customers can visit it to order their new rugged AGM phone. In the near future, the company plans to launch a new budget-oriented feature phone running on Android Go, called the AGM M5. It is IP 68 and MIL-STD-810G certified, guaranteeing its a rugged little handset. Meant as a backup device or the phone you take to places where smartphones might not survive, the M5 sports a 2,8-inch QVGA display, big and easy-to-read keys, and a 2,500 mAh battery which should last quite a while. It still supports 4G to keep you connected on your hikes. In the AGM web store, you can find the budget-friendly AGM A9 JBL, which still comes with quad JBL-tuned speakers; the mid-range AGM X2 SE, which packs a massive battery and a Snapdragon 653; and the flagship AGM X3, with dual JBL speakers, Snapdragon 845, wireless charging and more.

AGM A9 rugged smartphone with JBL speakers is official

AGM A9 has been in the news for a while and today the company unveiled the device in all its glory. The A9’s killer feature are the 4 speakers that are tuned by JBL and offer superior sound quality. Of course, it is a rugged smartphone as many previous models from the company that has a long tradition in such devices. The phone sports both IP68 and MIL-STD-810G certification and that means that not only is it both water and dust resistant, but it can also “bump-proof” in case you accidentally drop it. On the hardware side, the AGM A9 comes with a Snapdragon 450 SoC and that is a surprise as almost all smaller Chinese manufacturers use SoCs from Mediatek. To accompany the SoC, there are 3GB or 4GB of RAM that come with 32GB or 64GB of storage. The display measures at 5.99″ and has a FHD+ resolution meaning that the company dropped the 16:9 aspect ratio. Oh, it has a Glove mode too for easy use when wearing gloves. The device is not bezeless though, as that could make it less durable to drops. The photo shooting is taken care of by the 12MP Sony rear camera and the 16MP front camera so no dual camera here. Interestingly enough, AGM equipped their new star with an FM Radio, something that is missing from the vast amount of devices out there nowadays. Lastly, there is a fingerprint sensor on the back and the battery of 5400mAh makes sure you won’t run out of juice through the day.
