$150 is a small price to pay for a phone that can take abuse.

What about the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active?
Head to the beach with this Samsung Galaxy S8 Active smartphone, and splash away without worrying about its function. The dust- and water-resistant construction is made to handle the worst the day can bring, and durable construction keeps it protected in case you drop it.

Hey OP here is a solution.

If you get a case like the Otterbox then drill two small holes in the back or where the rubber/silicone meets the hard plastic then just put a wrist strap or lanyard with a quick release on it. I do the wrist strap on my LG G4 and can't tell you how many times it has saved the phone from falling and I've seen way too many people with cracked phones or thier phones drop near me then seeing my setup wished they had that setup before that happened. Especially if you're using the phone over the ledge of a cliff/balconey which will not end well if the phone falls.

They sell coiled lanyards out there in black so it does not stand out much when you pocket the phone and coil blends with most black/dark blue outfits when you're working.

My son is on his 3rd galaxy S8 this year. Keeps getting them fixed. Costing a lot.

He’s always in contact with boss all day so it has to be close. Today’s ended up in a sump pit.

Is there a solution to reducing his costs.

He could buy cheap kijiji phones and keep a stock pile. I’m tech, is there a phone that is cheap and easy to replace screens. A contract that allows for this? A phone case combo that takes a beating?

Open to all ideas.
Like others said.. get the Otterbox defender. Seen a ton of contractor guys use this case.

Where have you seen it for $150? It’s $250 plus at first glance.
