jurif, 27 Oct 2018i dont recommend the update to oreo,,,batery drain faster .....on nougat my baterry work minim... moreI bought it few days ago, already updated with Oreo. Runs 3 days with battery saver on and battery is at 41%. Even in that mode it runs smoothly and I think it may last for one whole week if u use it wisely.
What do you think, will Xcover 5 has a midrange SoC? Or the same old song & Exynos 7870 or Snapdragon 429/439...?
i dont recommend the update to oreo,,,batery drain faster .....on nougat my baterry work minimal 2 days....on oreo just 1,5 days maximum...
I have Xcover 4 with Orio 8.1. When I make a call, the screen turns off and it doesn't come back on until the phone call is over. I push the power button and the screen would momentarily turn on but it goes back to black in a split second. Anybody have a fix for this?
On oreo wifi doesn't work, same for deep sleep, so battery is for 15 hours laying on desk and doing nothing.

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2018The Xcover 4 gets Oreo 8.1 in many countries now.In what countries?
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
