The Mil-STD 810 G (or now 810H) is a method of testing. allows the manufacturer to pick what levels of vibration, temp, immersion, shock, etc. to use.
Phone that only work at 32 - 72F could be said to pass 810 testing....
Very Very hard to get samsung to post the temperatures their phones will run at.....
and unless they post a drop value (1.5 meters onto concrete), they could instruct the testing lab to pick it up 1 inch and drop it according to 810G standards and behold: it passes!!!
IP68 is a standard for 30 minutes of immersion at 1.5 meter.
Certified Gamer, 08 Apr 2021Get a nice phone with IP68 and put a rugged caseexample: get a v50 due to have ip68 and has that military standard certifications which makes a pretty strong phone (do not recommend throwing on the floor, bad idea)
vodny, 08 Apr 2021Why do I feel that my Galaxy S8 Active from 2017 is still better than most of these new phones... moreXperia Pro comes to mind, but you very likely aren't looking at that price point.
Other than that the S21 series w/ Victus & plastic back seems good or any of the LGs like V50/60, G8, etc sure are built like a tank.
I miss the old days when we had solid feeling phones w/ metal build, like the Nokia 6.1 or the HTC One phones
All these newer models and still not enough to put out a Note 21 Ultra???
Samsung is dead to me.
Ridiculous pricing. I will advice all people to get One Plus 7T instead.
Dometalican, 08 Apr 2021Ulefone is on the way with a Dimensity 1200 device. I'd wait for that to see what they got.500 USD for 12+256 version by June.
Get a load of all these rectangles, which will be succeeded in a month or two with improved versions lmao.
S-India, 07 Apr 2021Samsung think they are playing a clever game, they are not coming up with A72 5G , because it... moreIndia is not a important market for A72 5G, no point put too much effort in India, previous A71 5G too has slipped India market, for India A32 & A52 is the max majority can afford, after all A72 5G price is equal to emtire salary of a Manager in India.

Why do I feel that my Galaxy S8 Active from 2017 is still better than most of these new phones? I need a rugged flagship, that will be my outdoor companion no matter what weather and conditions are around me.
Dometalican, 07 Apr 2021That A42 price...$400 for a 720p display. You'd have to be an idiot to take that over the... moregod this again id rather have a lower res display and richer color, ive held so many phones with 720 and 1080 resolutions through all those years i cannot tell a single difference between which one is sharper plus what you gain from having a lower res display AND HAVING AN AMOLED DISPLAY which doesn't emits as much power compared to lcd displays fulhd resolution doesnt fit smartphones let alone quadhd resolution 1440p on a 5.8 inch display for gods sake
