I have dropped it several times from at least 1m on the ceramic tiles in my home. It survived without a scratch, so I'd guess that it's all about luck with the dropping and screen cracking. A big plus for the water resistance, as I experience heavy rain every now and then in my country. Besides that, it has an overkill battery life. I once managed 3 days of normal use on a single charge, and it even had some percentage left. I don't see any flaws, except the camera could be better, though it's average and makes nice photos. My Xcover 4 is imported from Poland, maybe that's the reason why I don't experience any problems?

Mine is cracking with any drop even on the carpet. I came on to check if i was the only one and then i see this comment. It's a joke! Nothing tough about it tbh
I bought my x cover 4 thinking it was the new version of my activ 5 but wow was i wrong. This phone is a pos, i spend most of my time doing battery breaks because the screen wont pick up my touch. The flash light turns itself on some how and then i need to go in and unlock it just to turn it back off and whenever i try to take a pic you need to be completely still for like ten seconds before it will even snap the pic which works great for catching someone in the moment....not. The worst part is this is my second one i 2 months because i figured there was something wrong with the first one. Im not impressed with samsung at all and this phone could make me an iphone customer from here on out. Thanks for making such a shit phone samsung.
where is the Xcover 4 made? Vietnam?
BTW, my phone has been going well, haven't really dropped it or got it wet yet. Camera not as good as the Sony Xperias that I'm use to, from Z to Z5

Wow.how this phone is even promoted as a durable.rugged.military phone is a joke..hold on..im still laughing at myself for being so.so.so. dumb.not sure how falling off a coffee table to the floor could chip the tough exterior and split my gorilla glass..im sure when they did their military testing,they dropped it onto a pile of goose feathers..lies.lies.lies..Dont take the chance.unless you carry it in a pillow.Shame on Samsung..Im a sucker for believing.....hope im the last..Iphone here i come..
Terrible microphone, speaker and in-call sound quality.
This is a phone... Have Samsung forgotten what a phone is for?
Absolute waste of money. I don't recommend it to anyone. It works worse than my 5-year-old Sony Xperia J (I bought Xcover 4 5 days ago)...

Hey Samsung why did you use such cheap material on this phone. You can clearly see that the material beside the volume and power bottom is too weak and prone to cracking. Why didn't you reinforce it? Poor design, quality and craftsmanship.

Screen is ISP and n... moreMost people assume being a Galaxy class phone that this one would be a flagship classed phone. It is not nor was it ever intended to be a high end phone. It is however designed to be a working-in-the-field type phone and was built for rugged use and not as a flagship entertainment device. The bonus is for the price point, it has impressive features one would not expect for a rugged model phone. Though it only has 16 GB internal storage it can take an impressive 256 Gb microSD card. Also even though the screen resolution is 1280x720 the camera can take 1080p photos and videos a definite bonus for this price point. So stop bashing or putting it down for what it doesn't have. Because it's not suppose to be in the same class as a Galaxy S series.

Regarding the turning off, if it is new, I'd turn it in to the store where you have bought it from, because this just can't be normal. I have this phone for only a month so I wouldn't like to make any false statements, but it did not let me down until now and it seems like it will not do it in the near future either. I really like it, especially because the battery life is just awesome.
