Anyone figured out where to get a new screen yet? I love this phone and it has survived several drops. A drop directly on it's face while getting out of my car finally cracked the screen though.
I do not want to part with this phone and I am not due for an upgrade for over a year.
I have looked everywhere I can think of and a few places I didn't think of as well. Not even able to get parts from Samsung direct, best I can tell.
Any help out there?
Can anyone confirm that this phone has no compass sensor and FM/AM radio?
Other sites have differing specs when it comes to these two items.
Sammy, why not such handset same specs., small screen no problem, in small size with dualsim for those on the move, pocket friendly size like pocket duos, can be handle with one hand,
Bottom line: Samsung advertises this as a rugged phone, but does not guarantee that it is actually rugged! My glass broke from a very minor fall and Samsung said, "Sorry, that's physical damage, no warranty coverage."
Now after five months my SD slot has failed, but I can't warranty it because of the cracked glass.
One nice thing: When the phone gets dirty from construction work I can rinse it off under a faucet. Just make sure the back cover is secure, as others said it pops loose very easily.
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2013not good as htc butterflyWas never supposed to be.. you cannot even compare them 2, one is a top end (htc) and one is meant for sports.
Sam, 21 Dec 2012is it waterproof? I mean can it take picture under water?Phone is safe from water damage up to 3 feet for 30 minutes. Touchscreen won't work under water though so don't expect to be snapping pictures under water.
I dropped my Galaxy Rugby Pro i547 from a height of just one meter and the glass shattered. My previous iPhone survived much worse falls while protected in an Otterbox case. Unfortunately because this Samsung is marketed as "rugged" nobody makes a truly protective case for it. Also, online parts suppliers snd repair companies don't support the i547.
My recommendation: stay away. Get a more common phone (iPhone, Galaxy S3, etc) and a good quality case.
Funny phone, it seem resistance to everythings including rusting in salt water but not against screen scratches !
No gorilla glass screen protection.
is it shock-resistant? what the difference between mil-std and ip certified?
I have been looking for my first phone all week on the web. this just might be it
i love this phone but the only problem is that it is not found in India .
