It offers a level of reliability that far exceeds that of a typical smartphone, making it a trusted companion for fieldwork.

One of the standout features of the Algiz RT8 is its large 8200mAh battery. This powerful battery easily allows for a full day of work without the device dying. With the screen at 80% brightness, the battery can last for an impressive 17 hours. This significantly outperforms the competition, with the average consumer tablet or smartphone lasting around 7 hours.

Handheld always make sure that there is an ecosystem of accessories surrounding their products and the Algiz RT8 still manages to stand out. It’s compatible with a vast range of accessories that enhance its versatility even further.

The rugged tablet has pole mounts, desktop docks, hand straps, and shoulder carriers. Basically, you can mount or carry it any way you want.
5. MaxGo Software Suite
The Algiz RT8 comes with the MaxGo Software Suite, which includes staging and device management software. This software allows for quick deployment of any amount of devices with the same settings. It makes it easy to remotely track the devices from a personal computer, adding a layer of convenience for users.
