Samsung Galaxy Xcover Extreme S5690 review

 

Samsung's first rugged Android smartphone hits the deck

Looks nice ; Rugged features ; Well protected microSD card slot ; Torch function ; Gorilla Glass screen

Low screen resolution ; Some water seepage in our under the tap test ; Poor camera ; On the large side ; No Flash support

We all know that Samsung isn't exactly a shrinking violet when it comes to smartphones. It has a wide range of handsets, spanning all price points and covering Android, Windows Phone and even its own Bada operating system.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover

 

Just received and set-up this phone. It appears to be as advertised: rugged, tight fitting, and big. So far it has performed well. No problems with this company and their service. Thanks . . .

Samsung Galaxy XCOVER GT-S5690

 

Tough as old boots. Built for life rather than looks

Limited RAM can be a bit restrictive
