Most daddies tend to be very active and get busy with their either rough hobbies or the demands at work that make them multitask. Hence, smartphones that have high IP (ingress protection) ratings will be complementary to their lifestyle. The highest possible IP rating of IP69 means they can survive conditions like hard falls, extreme dust, high heat, certain kinds of radiation, and even deep waters. Argomall houses over 400 authentic smartphones with official manufacturer warranty. Models with high IP rating include iPhone X 64GB (IP67), Huawei P20 Pro (IP67), Samsung Galaxy S9+ 64GB (IP68), and Sony Xperia XZ Premium (IP68).
