Like every Xcover since Xcover 3 weak specs but a very high price.
A non-rugged version with 1080p and 5000mah would sell like hot sauce.
If it includes a Stylus it will be more suitable for out doors, and more acceptable to those who are seeking for something special.
Bigfan8611, 04 Mar 2021Must be pretty high margin if the only thing it offers over a 150€ phone is a built in case an... moreIt is not the Snapdragon 850, but the Exynos 850, a 8nm processor aimed for entry level offerings
Interestingly the flagships from the much maligned LG have exactly the same mil-spec certification without being poorly specified and looking this ugly...
It sucks that they discontinued the Active line... Both my parents have had the Galaxy S7 Active for about 4 years and they both love it. I am not a fan of Samsung devices, but I can recognize the appeal of a ruggedized phone with specs that can last 4 years. Neither uses it with a case and they only invested in tempered glass for protecting the soft display instead.
The Xcover line sucks cause it is a phone built to last, but the internals are extremely obsolete.
Any current mid-ranger with a phone case will be better than this phone except maybe water resistant. I mean, what's the point of having this "outdoor" phone when it only had 3000 mAh battery to power it, where are you gonna go? Backyard?
What is the point of buying this phone with outdated hardware when I can buy a good flagship + case instead?
I worked for 3 years on a construction site and nobody used such phones, so we could afford to replace the phone in case of damage weird¯\_(ツ)_/¯
