The most important information about the IceFox HeroMany users are initially cautious about whom they are more unknown manufacturers. If the customer reviews are examined more closely by the outdoor mobile phone, the device also seems to fulfill the purpose as an outdoor device. The device is completely sealed against water and dust and it can drop without damage to the floor. It must, however, be mentioned that this calls for the usual sacrifices. The mobile phone is a bit heavy and bulky and the medium-sized display with 5 inch diagonally hardly suitable for the pocket. With a 4050 mAh rated charge, the battery is as big as a tablet and therefore the stamina is enormous. Due to the unchanged version of Android, no annoying bloatware needs to be feared. Unfortunately there is the device still the outdated Android 4.4 and there will be hardly an update. The display has a decent resolution with 1280 by 720 pixels and it is ensured for sufficient sharpness on the 5 inch diagonal. Something has gotten into the years is the quad-core processor, which offers only a lean Gigabyte memory and only 1.2 GHz clock rate. With the surface is enough for the liquid everyday operation, but it is felt with graphically more elaborate apps and surfing. With 8 gigabytes also the internal memory is very small and the 8-megapixel main camera is often only criticized as moderately. Although this is partially a bit disadvantageous, but still tolerable for the price of the smartphone.
The IceFox Hero is less a classic smartphone, but more of a device for outdoor use. The model can convince at this point by the very long running time of the battery and especially however with the robust construction. The solid performance can also be rated as positive. A camera is also on board, but this does not take convincing pictures. In addition, the manufacturer is still set to the outdated Android 4.4 version.Due to its robustness, however, it is a suitable choice for outdoor fans.However, if the buyers do not constantly climb mountains, then there are probably more powerful smartphones for the price.
