Android 5.1.1, 14 May 2017Will the 2015 Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 G388F update to Android 5.1.1?Yes. Mine has this update since quite some time already. There's even the SM-G389F model which is newer and get's 6.0
You may want to change the specifications: it does get Android 5.1.1, so it's no longer 5.0 upgrade planned.
Own it for 2.3years.Right after the shop it come with 5.1.1 but I downgrade it to 4.4.4 to root it. Work really well, drop it many times, and have been test it with countless apps. Not loosing speed or so. Battery last well, but all depend what you doing on or with it device.
Thanks to the link2sd and big SD card space was never issue. Still not gamer so have no idea if you try downloading the market.
Really happy that the USB can work with IR, TV dongles, USB Flash drive are easy to read..
NFC, WIFI, 4G just great.
The low end - it`s not that rugged as it claims. That water proof seal inside is shit. Also without covers water in the USB port make it to act strange. The screen after 2 years start to loose it sealed state around the bezel but well, never trust the adds.
If you`re practical man or engineer that is your device(i bought second one just in case because like it). Good phone for the price.. what i think was overpriced when come on the market.
I like this phone this phone is great in any weather condition.plus its a tough phone I've dropped it more than once and it still works.one of the best features is its flashlight one day all the electricity went out in my house.and we didn't have a torch but we used the phones flashlight.if you want a great tough phone I'd highly reccomend it
Android 5.1.1, 14 May 2017Will the 2015 Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 G388F update to Android 5.1.1?I managed to update my phone. Although i had problems during install with phone saying that i dont have enough space... and then it failed to boot after that. Nothing helped. After some Odin ROM flashing i succeeded and went straight to 5.1.1

dropped in water for 20seconds, the back cover fallout in the fall and now there is full of water inside screen! It work badly and i cant remove the water inside..
Is there a holder of xcover 3 who can try and tell me if the xcover button can be mapped as the PTT key in Zello APP ?
Thank You very much
