Going on an adventure?

AT&T is hoping that customers looking for a rugged smartphone that doesn't cost an arm and a leg will look into the newly announced LG X venture. The name says it all. It will be sold exclusively on AT&T network. LG's aim with the X Venture was to build a phone that suits the needs of the outdoor explorer, or anyone that just wants a good device that can handle the life of an adventurer. It has a metal frame and a textured back to keep the gripping strong and the body intact in the event of a fall. So it can survive under water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. So the X Venture is ready for knocks, drops, spills, and pretty much everything imaginable. These features include a flashlight, a barometer, an exercise tracker, a compass, weather report, and activity tracker.

LG understands that not all outdoor activities occur in warm climates so the LG X venture was designed with three physical keys on the front as well as a QuickButton on the side allows for easier interaction with the phone while wearing gloves or in wet or muddy environments. As far as the cameras are concerned, the LG X venture packs a 16-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. QuickButton works differently depending on how it's pressed - short press for Outdoor Essentials, long press for settings and double press to toggle Glove Mode to recognize screen taps and swipes with gloved fingers.
