At the moment, this device has a competitor, Poptel P10, who is called the "killer Samsung Galaxy Xcover." Maybe it sounds pathetic, but it's true. You begin to realize this when you see its characteristics (protection IP68, NFC and powerful equipment) and the price (in addition it will be sold at a discount of 27%).
Now for 180 euro waterproof phone, whit better screen and GPU should be perfect maybe, who can survive long.
Dear Samsung! Take a better, midrange SoC next time because I like to use my mobile with a glad way! Exynos 5 Hexa 7872 is the minimum -and with it I took compromise: with the Mali-G71 MP1 there is no PUBG Mobile, I think.
I had the phone for 6 months so my impressions:
+ good response, no hungs, GPS is precise, nice pictures, good sound
- camera constantly lose focus, upgraded but issue still persist, recently noticed that plastic between volume and power on button is cracked even phone is with silicone case - bad material, battery can't last for 2 days with normal use, waterproof- I don't dare to put it under water as my previous Xcover 3 got water inside so I am afraid with this also, in addition there are no water protectors on usb, speakerphones slots.
Conclusion: Nice phone BUT would NOT recommend it to people which have touch jobs
Anonymous, 17 May 2018I'm thinking about getting this phone is the camera quality good? I like to take photos that'... morecheck out samsung galaxy s6 active, you can order one from singapur for really low price and its far better phone with very similiar price
I live in a very marginal area for reception - out of 3 'phones, all on 4G, this Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 is the ONLY one that has allowed me 100% contact - 100% of the time.
As for its Spec. - its fine. Its a 'phone & it works fine. The camera bit is just that, I have a device called a camera for pictures.
Took a few days to understand the user formating of menus. Now with ONLY the apps I want and the rest disabled (but still available) battery is lasting a minimum of 75hrs.
I bought it as a 'phone - surprise surprise thats exactly what it is , a 'phone.
Bang for buck its ahead of what ever may be in second place.
Stop all your whining & get on with life !
FLIR thermal imaging to the next Xcover, pls! It would be necessary to enrich Xcover 5 with some new feature.

Hay i bought my phone on Saturday, and i really love this one. It's not that big or too small, And it has all the features that i love and need. Especially how you can also make calls over your WIFI internet when needed, besides that its fast enough to multitask and surf the web all at once. And at a great little price to. So i give this phone the big [ TWO THUMBS UP ]
It is too big for me. I hope, the next Xcover will be under 145mm and 150g! What concerns the display, 5" is more than what is ideal.
AC, 03 Apr 2018I totally agree, screen seems to have this auto cracking. Mine is cracking with any drop even ... moreThe plastic body is pretty tough and has a nice feel to it. 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
