I'm thinking about buying one of those super-resistant smartphones, such as the kyocera torque. I'm clumsy as fuck and don't want to end up using an expensive iPhone with a broken screen. What should I watch out for ? I've never had a smartphone before.
You will likely regret buying a phone like that. While it may be damn near indestructible, it lacks in many other categories. I suggest looking into a Motorola MotoZ Force. It just came out, has high-end specs, has a shatterproof screen and it is the first true modular phone. Go on Motorola's website and check it out.
6p and any case with beveled edges
Skip the rugged handset. Go for a flagship model, equip immediately with tempered glass screen protection and otterbox case. If cost is a huge deal, and you are a gsm customer, huawei honor 5x is great for $200.
