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...

Rugged and Works Great!


Overall, its the best phone ive ever had - ive had them all: android, iphone, blackberry, etc. I just got tired of having to worry about my phone getting damaged, dropped or wet. This phone doesnt have that problem. Like i said, ive put this to the...

Ive dropped it, drowned it, and buried it (someone has even frozen it) and it keeps on going no problem. The battery goes for about 3 days with heavy texting/talking, 5+ if you dont use it much. The flashlight is super bright and I use it all the time....

Every now and then the phone locks up when you try to correct long text messages. The battery symbol is unreliable. You will have full bars for two days, and then they will rapidly decrease towards the end of the life - no gradual fall like you would...

Samsung Solid Immerse review


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

The definitive Samsung Solid Immerse review

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

Samsung Solid Immerse


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.

Samsung Solid Immerse review


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

Expert review by:

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...
