Review of the Samsung Xcover B2710

 

Here is a complete walkthrough of Samsung's best tough phone, the B2710. The first tough Samsung phone to achieve an IP67 certification. Find out all about the design, user interface, features and performance of this rugged phone.

Samsung can proudly say with the Xcover B2710 “We made it!”. It is a phone that looks good, works well, is fully packed with features that all perform excellently and it can survive the hardy outdoors user or the clumsy indoor dropper.

Samsung B2710 / Xcover 271

 

Last year's B2100 is one of our favourite phones. A simple but useful device, it is highly resistant to dust, comes with a torch. and best of all, it works underwater. But as a handset the B2100 was a fairly basic GSM-only device, so the B2710 is a...

The Jack Bauer of phones returns in an even more rugged design

If you're after a cheap and cheerful phone that will probably outlive you and your children, then the Solid Immerse at £10 a month or £100 on PAYG is a great buy.

Samsung Solid Immerse GT-B2710 review

 

Samsung has been been very busy lately, mainly launching its slick Galaxy S II smartphone - which was met with lots of praise. But, as well as top-tier smartphones, the brand also offers a comprehensive range of mobiles for all wallets, including...

Rugged chassis, waterproof, good voice calling

Clunky web browsing and social networking, bulky, small screen, lame camera

A good basic option for outdoorsy types, but those who are after the smartphone experience should look elsewhere

Samsung Solid Immerse review

 

A tough, no nonsense candybar phone for clumsy people - but short on features

Tough and solid ; Good keypad ; Built-in torch ; FM radio ; Twitter and Facebook possible at a pinch ; Cheap price tag

Seems to suffer from poor battery life ; Web browser is poor ; 3G but not HSDPA ; No Wi-Fi ; Camera is poor

In the past we've liked Samsung's rugged handsets, but the Samsung Solid Immerse doesn't really do enough to bring the product line on. And, we hate to mention it again, but we simply have to recommend the Motorola Defy rather than this handset, unless...

A phone that can take on jungles, building sites and bath times. But would you want to use it?

Water and dust-proof ; Has 3G

Slow online features ; Chunky ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Mediocre screen

As we'll say several times in this review - if you inhabit the niche which the Solid Immerse is targeted at, all is good. If not, there's no way you could consider its design a good thing.

The Samsung Solid Immerse is the first feature phone we've reviewed in a while, and it lacks many of the features we'd expect on the smartphones we normally review. However, as its name suggests, it's a well-built phone that's water, dust and...

A rugged feature phone with useful features, the Solid Immense doesn’t have the power of a smartphone but is useful enough to make it good addition to your backpack

Samsung Solid Immerse Review

 

The Samsung Solid Immerse is a water-resistant, dust-resistant, feature phone with social network features and a microSD slot.

A suitably sturdy feature phone, the Samsung Solid Immerse does some things older ‘toughphones’ weren’t capable of. The social network access is a nice touch, but without a better 3G connection that supports higher download speeds, it's too frustrating...

Samsung Solid Immerse Review

 

The Samsung Solid Immerse is a sturdy and rugged mobile phone for those with a more adventurous side and who prefer to spend time outdoors. And no, I don't mean leaving the computer to go to McDonalds….

The Samsung Solid Immerse houses a 1300mAh standard battery and the battery life, on paper, seems to be pretty good with up to 610 hours of standby time (2G). However, I noticed that our review unit only managed to last a few days with moderate usage,...

Affordable phones often struggle to stand out from the pack, so it's refreshing to see one with a clear, no-nonsense selling point. In the case of the Samsung Solid Immerse, it's an ability to withstand the sort of treatment that would swiftly...

The Samsung Solid Immerse holds very few surprises when it comes to performance and features and gives a solid showing in the vital areas of battery life, reception and call quality. However, it is an obvious choice for anyone in need of a cheap,...
