  • Samsung Galaxy S5690 Xcover preview: First look
    GSMArena team
    03 Sep 2011 | gsmarena

    The Samsung S5690 Galaxy Xcover brings a touch of class and authority to a lineup of durable dumb phones for the outdoor enthusiasts. It’s arguable whether it can take as much bashing as its less sophisticated siblings, but this rugged smartphone is trying to combine the best of both worlds. The Galaxy Xcover is Samsung’s response to Motorola, who are building their own squad of tough droids, with a 1GHz Gingerbread-powered update of their De...

  • Samsung`s first rugged Android smartphone hits the deck

    13 Feb 2012 | techradar

    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 has been in the rugged mobile phone arena before, although only with `dumb` phones such as the Solid Extreme B2100.

    Pros: Looks nice, Rugged features, Well protected microSD card slot, Torch function, Gorilla Glass screen,

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

    The Galaxy Extreme is an affordable rugged handset, although it`s short on internal storage and the screen and camera are both disappointingly low-resolution. If you want a tough Android smartphone, you should also consider the similarly priced......

    Pros: Rugged design, with IP67 rating ; Gorilla Glass screen ; Attractive price

    Cons: Low-resolution screen ; Low-resolution camera ; Short on internal storage ; 800MHz CPU cannot handle Flash

    Verdict: We tested the water resistance of the Galaxy Extreme by running it under a tap for several ten-minute periods. We found that unless we were careful to press the backplate down very firmly there was a little water seepage under it. However, the second...
