Zebra TC25: The Rugged Smartphone for Business


The popularity of mobile devices, most especially the smartphone is not waning. Faster communications, real time information and applications that make everyday tasks such as paying for parking or booking an appointment faster and easier are clear reasons why.

Utilisation of the consumer smartphone for work has steadily been increasing alongside the overall popularity of the device. The multipurpose nature of the smartphone and the Android OS has clear applications for the business world. Emails, voice communications and calendar management are some of the easier crossover usages. (Deloitte, 2017)

However, what the “off the shelf “consumer smartphone cannot always deliver is a device capable of boosting productivity and efficiency of work processes in a work ready form factor.

Zebra have the answer with the TC25 Rugged Smartphone.

Designed with the mobile worker in mind – a perfect blend of smartphone simplicity and business class features.



Running Android Nougat 7.X; a familiar interface your workers will instantly recognise from their own smartphones. Training is limited, productivity and task efficiency maximised right from the start. With a range of apps at your fingertips through Zebra’s Mobility DNA ecosystem the TC25 is ready to help you streamline work processes and provide outstanding security and OS support (LifeGuard for Android).



Save time scanning with an enterprise class scanner; omni-directional and fast, capture 1D and 2D barcodes in practically any condition and even on mobile screens from up to 30 inches away (model dependant). More work, more efficiency, more happy customers.


Incorporating a high capacity 3000 mAh battery that can last a full shift (10hrs), and charges in under 4 hours.

Zebra understands that mobile workers are always on the go, time is precious and sometimes putting a device on charge doesn’t happen.  With the optional PowerPack Battery – crisis averted: just snap on the TC25 for an additional 8-10 hours of battery life. For complete efficiency and lower total cost of ownership all cradle options, holsters and the hand straps are supported with or without the PowerPack.

The TC25 can keep working as long as you do.
