Hytera PDC760: Digital Radio or Smart Phone?

The PDC760 is a multi-mode advanced radio from Hytera that has been called a revolutionary device in the private/public radio network industry.

The device has all the functionality of the top of the range two-way radios, whilst also having features that match up to some of the leading smart phones worldwide. Running on an Android operating system, this allows the user access to the App Store, receive LTE Data, group calling capabilities and a Cloud Backup system, preventing any data from being lost should the device become damaged or broken.

The likelihood of the device breaking though is extremely slim, Hytera have fitted it with a 4” Gorilla Glass III screen, this being scratch resistant, anti-impact, anti-fingerprint and oil resistant, boasting a service life for the LCD display of over 30,000 hours. Having tested its durability from a 1.2 meter drop, whilst also being IP67 Dust and Waterproof Resistant, this radio can take almost anything that you throw at it.

With all of the different features that the PDC760 boasts you would expect for the shortcoming of this device to be its battery life, but that isn’t the case. Using the 2900 mAh Li-Ion battery which is supplied with the radio you can get up to 14 hours, but this can be boosted by up to 20 hours with the optional 4000 mAh Li-Ion battery. In order to maximise battery performance there is a second black and white screen located on top of the device, this allows for clear information without having to use the main screen, being visable from multiple angles.
