Samsung GALAXY Xcover Preview

 

Although we've heard more than a few stories of smartphones surviving all kinds of abuse – being dropped from a plane, baked in an oven, or ran over by a car, to name a few examples, they are pretty vulnerable devices in general. The Samsung GALAXY...

Samsung Solid Xcover

 

Even though we're very much heading towards a smartphone-centric world, some people require a phone that sacrifices good looks for the ability to take some hard knocks.

Rounding out the XCover's noteworthy features is a nifty internet browser running on NetFront 4.2, and a battery with a talk time of up to 1150 minutes (1000 hours stand-by time). So if you manage to get lost in the mountains, you can feel safe in the...

Samsung Galaxy xCover (Extreme) Review

 

Samsung has been the leader of the Android smartphone world for over a year now with their market-leading smartphones such as the Galaxy S and its consequent successor, the Galaxy S II. However their ...

Has IP67 certification; so it is water and dust-proof ; Satisfactory hardware performance ; Above average radio coverage

Needs a price drop, superior phones available for a similar price ; Will never get an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update ; The display is just downright bad ; Camera won’t replace a 5 year old digital camera

Better luck next time eh Samsung?

Samsung Galaxy Xcover

 

The Galaxy Xcover is Samsung's answer to the Motorola Defy, and the first-ever 'rugged' phone to run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).

The handset comes complete with an IP67 compliancy rating, which means it's protected against dust and drops, and as well as being waterproof to 1 metre of water for up to 30 minutes. It also comes boasting a scratch-proof reinforced screen, which...

Tough and durable but no support.

 

The crashing problem happened right out of the box. If my friend had gotten it from Newegg, I have no doubt that he could have exchanged it for a good one. Other than that it is a fantastic phone, and worth the price several times over once you realize...

It is as durable and as waterproof as it claims to be. The Corning Gorilla Glass is durable and scratch resistant. The phone has survived several island vacations and more than a few drops. It is great for taking rainy day pictures when nothing else...

Crashes and reboots every few hours. Usually the display does back off after this event, but sometimes it stays on and kills the battery. My friend wanted to get this at Newegg, but they were out. The source he got it from offered no support, and...
