NEC Terrain (AT&T) review

 

Rugged, waterproof, and equipped with a convenient portrait keyboard for all your messaging needs, the NEC Terrain is one device that can handle just about anything.

NEC's waterproof and rugged Terrain features 4G LTE, push-to-talk, and an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard.

The Terrain is unattractively heavy, runs the dated Android 4.0 OS, and records poor video.

If you want a rugged AT&T handset, pick NEC's sturdy Terrain, but those in search of a more stylish device should consider the pocket-friendly Samsung Rugby Pro.

NEC Terrain (AT&T)

 

The NEC Terrain smartphone is a throwback to the golden age of BlackBerrys, which isn't entirely a compliment.

Putting “ruggedized” high on your shopping list constrains your choices dramatically, but you have a few options. On AT&T, we prefer the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro, with a much larger screen, a newer version of Android and better upgrade prospects. We...

NEC Terrain (AT&T)

 

The NEC Terrain smartphone is a throwback to the golden age of BlackBerrys, which isn't entirely a compliment.

Rugged design. Physical keyboard. Fast LTE. Push-to-talk support.

Tiny, low-res screen. Cramped physical keyboard. Poor cameras. Obsolete version of Android.

NEC's latest effort for the U.S. market is the Terrain, a rugged Android smartphone that offers push-to-talk and a full QWERTY keyboard. Here is Phone Scoop's full review.

out dated OS but tough and great call quality

 

I've owned this phone for a year and a half now. The phone is very rugged. This screen maybe small but the text is clear. The keyboard is a little cramped but text fast and even write emails on it. Performance is ok not the best but certainly not the...

Okay features

horrible

 

Android is out of date and you cannot update. Also, the keyboard is horrendous! This phone was so bad it gave me gas pains for 3 days.

Sturdy, well built.

 

This phone is well built and easy to use. The operating system and the display quality are not the best, but I wanted to have a physical keyboard. There are very few smartphones available with physical keyboards. Overall I am VERY happy with this...
