The Chinese manufacturer AGM is well known for its ruggedized high quality and durable mobile phones, and recently the company has announced its new flagship and official successor to the AGM X1. This is called AGM X2 and it is a ruggedized smartphone with excellent technical specifications, an impressive photographic section with dual camera set, large capacity battery and let’s not forget what characterizes these mobiles: its great strength and durability. However, its manufacturer has wanted to do something special with its new flagship, and that something is the inclusion of an environmental sensor VOC (Volatile organic compounds), characteristic that makes the AGM X2 a unique mobile in its type. I guess most of you have learned about this awesome phone from the review we came in the way earlier, but if no we’ll recall its key features once again. This is highly recommended to take a glance at them because the phone is currently offered for $455.99 after using the coupon (code: GBCPH15).

The main characteristic of the AGM X2 is its rugged design that makes it extremely resistant to adversity. At first glance, its construction is notoriously robust and lacks those rounded connotations that abound in the mobiles of today, but it does in exchange for favoring the resistance, so it is an exchange of aesthetics for durability. The body of the terminal combines metallic elements with plastic parts, screws and rubber segments at the corners that cushion the impacts in case of fall, which is a wise decision given that such falls are extremely harmful to any telephone. It is vitally important to highlight the fact that the AGM X2 features MIL-STD-810G military grade resistance as well as an IP68 certification rating, which means it is water, shock and dust proof.
The AGM X2 sports a 5.5-inch screen with AMOLED technology and offers FHD resolution. The crystal has 4th-gen Corning Gorilla Glass protection to resist knocks, scratches and any oversights that could compromise the display’s operational capability.
The AGM X2 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 quad- core processor at 1.5GHz, which is backed by an Adreno 510 GPU and 6GB of RAM. The internal storage has a capacity of 64GB / 128GB (2 versions) and can be expanded up to 128GB using a Micro-SD card, although that does require some removal of screws to access its slot.
This mobile is powered by a generous battery of 6000mAh able to offer up to 50 hours of autonomy in call and 480 hours in standby mode so that it will easily arrive the full day in a scenario of real use. In addition, the AGM X2 is compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, so we will enjoy a quick charge and the ability to recover 70% of the load in just over 30 minutes.
As it is a trend in the current market, the AGM X2 includes a dual camera with sensors SONY IMX386 of 12MP and Optical Zoom 2X. The front camera has not been neglected at all and incorporates a sensor Samsung S5K3P3 of 16MP to obtain selfies unforgettably.
However, the main novelty here is the inclusion of a VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) sensor. If you are wondering, the term VOC means organic volatile compounds, these can be found in several states and be of natural origin or caused by man, in the end, are extremely harmful to human health and the environment, but the AGM X2 has a specialized sensor capable of detecting if our environment is safe for human breathing and if there is any type of concentration of VOCs in the area.
