Anonymous, 13 Jun 2015why no coning ape glassThe Xcover 2 didn't have Corning glass, either, but what it had was just as good.
The phone is nice but the touch screen us rubbish, every low sensitivity, poor battery and signal.

The new standard nowadays is graded with higher and better quality. They don't use that white thing anymore. You should buy latest model.

This phone is made for construction workers, athletes, builders, extreme sport and swimmers. It is perfect for outdoor activity. Sporty people don't spend their time too much on the phone so they have no care for screen resolutiin or lack of apps and features. They need strength and durability and that's it.
Quicksilver, 27 May 2015Not just bulletproof u can also use this to stop a nuclear bom
"BOOM"!!!!what kind of phone is that C4 combination..
*how much will this phone cost? I need to know badly because i want to purchase this one
Too bad it lacks ambient light sensor and auto screen brightness. I imagine it can be annoying trying to change the brightness on a touchscreen too dark to read on sunlight. Perhaps the blue button can be set to change screen brightness. Or perhaps an incoming call could set the screen to 100% so one could see the caller even under the sun if screen was left on low brightness.
SAR 0.71 at head. Check out http://devicespecifications.com - the most precise specs I've seen yet for this phone.
I've had mine for a few days and love it. Not comparing it in any way with leading edge phones, but it's vastly superior to the xcover 2 I've had for over 2 years. Memory woes are a thing of the past. Sound is tinnier, but volume fine for voice radio. LTE apparently not brilliant indoors (one bar when my ipad mini 2 shows four, BUT actual send/receive is fine.
Screen horrible in bright light and doesn't compensate automatically, but ok for viewing photos. Camera slow but ok. It's got OTG so you can put photos on the SD card from any camera and save them, send them...
Sooo much better then the xcover 2. You win twice: better hardware (quad-core and more Ram and 5gb internal memory) and 4G capable.
With the xcover 2 I always had problems with not enough memory because you can't install apps on your SD card and also ran into complete block

Have you experienced any restrictions using 3G or LTE in north america? The user manual available from samsung.uk refers to the installation of a microSIM card while many ebay sellers refers to this model as being SIM free.
