Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 review: Gone fishing

 

Modern smartphones are essential tools for urbanites, but they are usually left behind on a trip to the great outdoors. Not the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 though, it will gladly join in the adventure and isn't afraid of a few knocks or a dive.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4" 16M-color LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX ; 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali-400MP...

Big and heavy, even for a water resistant phone ; Reflective screen with poor color rendition ; Battery could have been bigger

The Samsung S7710 Galaxy Xcover 2 is a niche product - sitting at the intersection between people who need a rugged phone (be it for work or for play) and the people who need a smartphone.

Rugged Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 takes Android underwater

 

The rugged Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 is basically the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini in a waterproof case.

Review Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 GT-S7710 Smartphone

 

A rugged companion. Samsung writes another chapter in the outdoor

Good manufacturing; Fit for outdoor use; Bright display; High contrast; Quick internal memory; Practical speaker

Relatively heavy; Only 4 GB internal memory; Poor-quality front camera

We haven't seen many outdoor smartphones to date. The Sony Xperia Acro S is one example. Otherwise the competition is: Android mid-class devices like the Samsung S3 Mini GT-I8190, HTC One SV or Huawei Ascend G615.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 Review

 

Galaxy Xcover 2 is Samsung's first shot at rugged telephony for the year, as the Android handset sports water-, shock- and dust-proof certifications.The Xcover 2 upgrades the specs of its predecessor, and throws in some neat features, like a dedicated...

Rugged yet ergonomic waterproof handset ; Good picture and video quality

Outdoor screen visibility could be better ; No ambient light sensor ; No second mic for noise-cancellation is a challenge outdoors

If you are looking for a rugged but fairly light and compact Android handset, look no further than the Xcover 2. Granted, it doesn't have the specs or panache of the waterproof Xperia Z, but it is shockproof and won't break the bank for you.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 review

 

Impregnable, powerful and impressive

Rugged ; Camera button ; Impressive screen

Small battery ; Slightly thicker than necessary

If you're in the market for a tough, attractive next-gen smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 could certainly be worth checking out. We didn't get to dunk it underwater, which is still a favourite test of all mobile phone reviewers, but we're pretty...

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 hands-on review

 

The Xcover 2 is not only waterproof (sort of), but it will also stick two-fingers up to sand and dust too. This is largely thanks to the rather ugly and bulky (in my opinion) grey ‘Xcover' that this smartphone wears on its back. For the rugged...

So there you have it, the Xcover 2 is a smartphone that really is for ‘outdoorsy’ people and because of that we have to say that it’s a pretty impressive device. Essentially, if you’re looking for a Smartphone with decent enough specs that can...

6 months on and I had to get a new phone

 

After being satisfied with the xcover I run out of space for apps and thought that I would be getting a better phone with the xcover2. I was wrong. From the beginning I couldn't transfer my data using kies because it doesn't support the xcover series!...
