jaySOUTH AFRICA, 28 Feb 2014My. XCover 2. Has only. 1 Gb of internal memory. ! Is that suppose to be only that much o... moreAndroit system eat 3 GB + google drive etc ... yu have less den 1 GB ... A:-(
originally had a Samsung xcover1, bought excover2 as an upgrade (both off eBay unlocked), i already assumed there was going to be apps i wouldn't use on it so not a problem so installed a reasonable maintenance app (360) and run it often, moved everything i could storage wise to external card, mainly installed apps that sat on the external card, bought after market 2450mAh batteries as from experience with xcover1 the Samsung battery can be almost half that of aftermarket capacity ones... fore warned fore armed as it was... now the reasons i use this phone.. i wanted a fairly simple phone i can change batteries on, make calls, take pictures/video, was weather resistant and ran GPS apps.. this is what this does (for me) very well... I use a gps app called "maverick" that is excellent for my bush-walking/hiking and it uses the two GPS and GLONASS systems at once so in the majority of open areas i get up to 14+sat and in most of the city and gully/canyon areas hardly less than 2, being able to change batteries is good as running the GPS chews power so i swap out batteries and recharge flat ones separately off a power bank/solar on long multi day walks or simply carry 2 extra high capacity batteries for a 1 day walk... in essence i use it more as a gps (60%) and less as a mobile, as others have said its not a fancy, bling phone that is good to show off to others but its fairly good to take outdoors in all weathers..
I have this phone for two years .and for price i paid it it's best phone i ever had .durable and reiable .it has few flaws ;charger plug fell of after two months those are crap and it wont save to memory card (default memory must be phone) but everything else never faild me. Sometimes when im drunk i smash it for fun when my freinds ask what is that phone .totaly worth every penny.Next phone i get will be xcover3 hope that phone is a worthy successor.
After 3 years from purchasing this p of s it is near useless because numerous program fails.
It won't let me answer calls, it works only with loudspeaker on, GPS is very slow, alarm clock adds and removes repeat days by itself....only torch is ok, at least I can walk my dog in mornings. Factory reset is done about 10 times.....nothing helps, and I have only 3 small downloaded applications installed from Google Play.
Crap fone.Cant move any data to ext sd card.Right now it says contacts being updated ,so cant use it to call,put in airtime etc.How do I stop this
Why when I try to log into wi fi do I keep getting "authentication error"? and what does that mean?
Extreme good flashlight, good battery (up to 4,5 day!). Not bad camera. Really waterproof but phone case can open on the side when hit ground then isn't waterproof!
Low internal memory (~800 Mb) and no option do install apps on SD card, lot of shitty apps installed, using a lot of RAM (600-700 Mb) without running apps!
Frozen screens and suspending is typical. Screen is not scrath resistant.
i have a problem with my phone. on my calls my voice is barely audible while the person i talk to can be heared perfectly fine. what might be the problem?
This Xcover 2 is good for peaple who realy need a phone not for the people who want to show everybody what cool phone I have...
My Xcover 2 fall so many times, take some water few times and steal work whith no problem, I do not want a phone that I must be carefull every minute not to fall, not to scratch or if it splash with a litle water must cha ge the phone.
Camera is very good for 5 megapixeli 1 G Ram is enough but the only thing that I bothering me is the memory Rom only 1 G and you cant update to many aps but if you use the memory only for the things that you realy need and use you will find out that you have enogh memory.
For me is a verry good phone and I recomanded to peapole who do not want a fansy phone.
Possible i will by the new model Xcover 3 evan if is no big diference only plus I see is 8G Rom but I will inform after and i hope that is the same quality as these oane.
hi everyone I have a problem, im using Samsung s7710 X cover 2. all my incoming calls are showing unknown.so I wanted to know that what should I do so that it can show all my incoming calls identities?
- IP67 certified - dust tight and water proof (up to 1m for 30 mins)
this is reason that i buy this phone and it is work so far
he was in bucket of liquid for cleaning airconditioners 30 min he was working
forgoten 1 hour on heavy norway rain and he was still working
i dont know how many time i drop on floor rock ..... he is still working
i didnt notice big problems whit wirelles and i i often sleeping in motel hotels
problems whit this phone is starting when you overload phone whit free app
when i figure that i keep only skype compass and some navigation i dont use app for lamp i use default phone buton +
phone working fine
realy durable and robust phone for ppl who working or spending much time outdoor
this is not fancy phone
i hope on next edition they will fix battery life on atleastr 2 days on 3g and give you option to remove all unnecessary app
also my cover on usb connection broke up after 3 years that they need to solve
probbaly will buy next generation

Anonymous, 19 May 2015The internal storage on this phone is actually quite limited. If there is not enough internal ... moreplease I need the housing of this phone.i really like the phone but I hav a problem with my housing
Yes, free memory is *really* that scarce.
Asides from the smallish 4 GB Mem, 1 GB RAM specification, Samsung has overloaded the phone with lots of bloatware and you can't install apps on the SD Card with the stock firmware.
Had to switch to Cyanogen almost immediately. Now it's a rather sensible rugged phone.
