I am currently searching for an IP65 or better rated feature phone since I need a glove compatible in the wet device. I am however finding the pickings slim. Any suggestions out there?

Why limit to a feature phone? Price? Doogee make great IP68 tri proof phones.

Requirement to work with gloves in the wet which is not one of the strengths of capacitive touch screens.
They have been working with gloves for a while.

I have the Doogee S50 (R2500 6Gb+128Gb 5.7") and my son has the S55 (R1800 4Gb+64Gb 5.5"). Good phones and they work with gloves, greasy hands, muddy hands, under water, covered in cow .....

If there is a specific gove you want me to try on my phone? They don't work with thick leather safety gloves, but work fine through 4 layers of nitrile.

I am replying from my Doogee S60
Works with/without gloves - even thick ones I use in the garden.

Awesome rocksolid phone that doubles as a bludgeoning weapon ;-)

Still looking for a feature phone and not a smartphone because my use case suits it better, battery life, ease of use with gloves.

I am stuck in the same boat, planning to buy the Doogee S30?
Any comments on it or must I rather go for the s55 lite?
