Let’s take a deeper dive:
AGM H5 Pro resistance ratings, loudest speaker
The AGM H5 Pro has a stylized rugged body with a large multi-color light ring on the back. It’s there to underline another amazing feature of this phone — a 3.5 W, 109 dB speaker. For comparison’s sake, a loud rock band rehearsal with live drums gets up to 106 dB. The rugged shell has IP68, IP69K, and MIL-STD-810H certifications for dust-, water-, and shock-resistance. The phone can survive for 30 minutes under 1.5 meters of water, is 99% resistant to dust, and has been tested through multiple drops from a 1.5 meter height (4.92 ft).
The durability of the phone and that loud speaker make it a good choice for professionals that work around loud machinery or hikers that want a tough phone with a good sound all in one.
The screen on the front has a 6.5-inch diagonal and a 720p resolution. It’s an LCD panel with a maximum brightness of 500 nits.
AGM H5 Pro hardware and camera setup
Breaking up the stereotype of “affordable rugged phones”, AGM decided to outfit the H5 Pro with a more potent chip than usual. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G85 — an octa-core processor with clock speeds of up to 2 GHz. It’s paired with 8 GB of RAM and offers 128 GB of storage. All of this is powered by a 7,000 mAh battery — bigger than many of the mainstream powerbanks out there.
The main camera on the back has a 48 MP Samsung-made sensor and a lens aperture of F1.8. The infrared night vision camera has a 20 MP Sony sensor, so it offers high-res night imagery as well. And then there is a 20 MP selfie camera for you to take memorabilia and share-worthy photos from your hikes.
Lastly, it all runs on Android 12 — a clean take on the newest Google operating system, with its enhanced customization, privacy dashboard, and snappy performance.
