The Nomu S30 4G Phablet has been built to withstand any kind of circumstances, it has been built to be durable enough that the customer can take it anywhere with them be it hiking or under water maybe into a waterfall for some reason. I have to say, Nomu has certainly done a remarkable job here

It has a very peculiar look making this device different from other smartphones. Although its thick, when you hold it doesn’t feel uncomfortable to hold which is very nice. It has a nice metal finish on the sides with firm buttons adding up to the overall look of this smartphone.

The Nomu S30 comes with a Full HD 1080×1920 pixels 5.5″ inch capacitive touch screen which has a pixel density of 401 Pixels per inch giving you a very nice viewing experience. The display has a viewing angle of 178o

For extra protection, this device comes with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which will protect this device from every scratch making it shock proof, dust proof and also vibrational damages. Durability at its best.


The Nomu S30 comes with MediaTek Helio P10(MT6755) SoC consisting of ARM Cortex-A53 Octa core processor clocking at the speed of 2.0 GHz. It also includes ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU clocking at 700MHz. It has 4GB LPDDR type 3 RAM and 64 GB ROM.

The hardware specifications are quite heavy but the performance of S30 is not that promising, though it’s really good for normal users but for heavy users, there is a tad bit of lag to be found while multi-tasking.

A rugged phone with a pro like a camera is very handy to keep and with the Nomu S30, you will be getting this, that too at a very affordable rate. On the front, we have a nice 13MP Sony IMX214 Exmor RS shooter. It has all the essential features like Autofocus, HDR, and RAW mode shooting, etc.

On the back, we have a 5MP shooter which captures decent selfies but only in daylight conditions, at night the pictures are noisy and the pictures are a little blurry. It comes with a single LED flash for its rear camera for adding light to darker images.
