Meet the Energizer Hardcase H550S

Meet the Energizer Hardcase H550S
OK, so following hot on the heels of the P600S is this, the Energizer Hardcase H550S. This sucker is water resistant and shock proof. Drop it from 1.5 metres and it’ll survive. Stick it under water for up to 30 metres and again, it’ll be fine to use.

The handset has a 5.5″ HD (720 x 1280) screen which is protected with 2.5D curved glass. Connectivity-wise you’ve got 4G, WiFi plus Bluetooth 4.0. Meanwhile, there’s a 13 megapixel camera at the back, a 5 megapixel front shooter, 2GB RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. You can add to that with a microSD card slot.


Under the hood, it’s powered by Android 7.0 and has a Mediatek MT6737 quad core 1.3 GHz CPU. All the other usual bits come as part of the deal, GPS, flash, fingerprint detection, fast charge, USB-C connector and a 3.5mm audio jack.

This being an Energizer phone, you’re getting a very decent battery – the H550S has a 5000mAh battery and apparently gets NFC too.

Energizer tell me that this will be available soon from Amazon. No news on price but we’re asking them about that one.

In-app purchases. It's not always micro-payments. Sometimes they're super-sized ones!
Ready for 5G? You're going to need a bigger package.
