The ReviewGist pick for March 2017 for the best cellphone for construction workers is the OnePlus 3T.

The OnePlus 3T is the flagship phone by the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus and is one of the best Android phones you can buy at its price category. It is priced below premium, has all the performance you will ever need, is build extremely solid and has a very respectable 3400 mAh battery.

The OnePlus 3T tops the ReviewGist list for the best cellphone for construction workers because it comes with the industry leading Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and has a top-of-the-line speaker loudness score of 69 dB.

The harsh environments construction workers work in require toughened displays on cellphones with the ability to withstand accidental drops on harsh surfaces. The cellphone industry has seen constant improvements regarding the durability of glass with better and tougher options on the latest models. The highest industry standard in 2016 and early 2017 for tough displays is what is known as Corning Gorilla Glass 4 - and is steadily improved technology by Samsung which guarantees improved resistance against glass breakage and damage. Our picks for the best cell phones for construction workers includes only those models which have the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 technology.

Also GSMArena runs test on the speaker loudness levels for most cellphones. We filtered our list of the cellphones with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 further by including only those phones which have a loudness rating of 69 dB and beyond. This is because most construction sites face a higher noise interference than normal and a louder phone will help you get heard better in such environments.

It does everything really, really well, and while it may not truly excel in areas such as screen resolution and camera quality, the OnePlus 3T is still astonishingly good value for what is a serious flagship contender.

It takes the best bits from the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6, and blends them together into a quite brilliant smartphone.

excellent smartphone

Axon 7 is less expensive than the best flagship smartphones, yet it looks and performs like a top-tier Android Marshmallow handset, with front-facing speakers, 64GB of storage and only a few sacrifices.
