The Samsung Galaxy Xcover did not really manage to impress us. Granted, a rugged smartphone isn't judged by its performance, and the Xcover has been out for quite a while, but the performance is too mediocre to ignore it completely. The hands-on...

We’ve seen a few rugged phones over the last six months, and it seems to be a niche that does well here in New Zealand. That’s possibly in part because of our dramatic and technology-destroying scenery. Another factor is that rugged phones...

The Samsung Galaxy Extreme looks great, and its rugged features will appeal to many; but look under the hood and you find it is not particularly well specified. ...

Samsung has made rugged handsets before, and not done too bad, but this is the first time the company has brought rugged features to an Android smartphone, and we aren't all that excited, because the general specifications are average rather than...

The Samsung Galaxy Extreme is an affordable Android handset whose rugged features may have some appeal, although we noticed a little water seepage under the backplate in our tests unless we were very careful about fitting it securely. It's short on...

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover combines the functionality of an entry level Android-powered smartphone with the ability to withstand dust, shock, and water damage, which is a profile that few handsets can match. Our only major complaint is...

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...

Geen angst meer voor een buitje. Ga je mountainbiken in de modder, verbouwen, naar een meerdaags festival of onbedoeld in een sloot zwemmen. Geen enkel probleem voor de Samsung Galaxy Xcover. Dat komt omdat hij voldoet aan de IP67-norm. Het toestel kan...

Det känns kul att marknaden för tåliga telefoner börja mogna. Den klassiska hajfenan har på sistone fått en del riktigt värdiga efterträdare med Sony Ericssons Xperia Active, Motorola Defy Plus och nu även...

Det var så vores lille test af Galaxy Xcover, der er ip-67 certificeret. I praksis betyder det, at den er rimelig sikret mod støv, snavs og fugt. Den er ikke meget stærkere med hensyn til slag og knus end mange andre mobiler og da slet...

Galaxy Xcover er en solid og brukervennlig Android-telefon som både er vann- og støvtett. Den har også bra trøkk i lydutgangen og god batteritid. Kameraet er derimot ikke noe særlig å skryte av, og internminnet er veldig...

Das Samsung Galaxy Xcover ist wie das Motorola Defy+ ein Smartphone für echte Outdoorfreaks. Eine Steckdose sollte aber trotzdem greifbar sein, oder zumindest eine mobile Ladestation. Zum Preis von etwa 200 Euro bekommt man ein waschechtes...
