  1. Hi.
    I have that smartphone and i can´t switch to split screen mode like on Android 7 Nougat. How you did it?

    Thanks and grettings

  2. Another rugged phone! To be water-proof looks like a trend in the phone
    industry. Big brand like iPhone 7, Samsung S7, but they are either of
    poor waterproof performance or expensive. In terms of water-proof and
    drop-proof, I love NOMU as much as ever, a truly professional rugged
    phone maker. (I recently bought its T18, and I’m more than satisfied.)
    For King Kong, I don’t know, we’ll see.

    Only 4400mAh battery, that’s a low-level configuration for a rugged
    phone. Professional rugged phone brands like NOMU, all are 5000mAh or
    above, and with power-saving function. A rugged phone should be like
    that for big battery is so important for a outdoor use.
