Hello - Is XCOVER-4 upgradable to Android-10 version? I read it as it upgradable till V9.
I've had this phone for about a year (bought second hand). It works just fine, is waterproof when in good condition. Mine isn't anymore, even though the battery cover seal looks like it should still work.
It prompted up upgrade to Android 9.x soon after getting it which I did. Nothing wrong with 9.x other than the calculator and phone dial pad buttons are a bit smaller and easier to miss.
On its original battery (afaik) it lasts about 18 hours with little use and ~12 hours with heavy use.
The camera works...but the colour isn't as deep as most current phones.
If you drop it on a hard surface expect the battery to fall out as the cover is only clipped on. So don't drop it in a puddle!
Hi. How does Samsung Xcover 4 work after upgrade to Android 9.0 (Pie)? Does it have batteru problems?
I have xcover 4s. For that price it is good phone. But about rugged... well mine has cracks next to earphone plug and volume button. And those defects isnt after Drop...
Jack, 18 Feb 2019Can this phone be used without a sim card??What you mean by that?
Harris Kusumaharja , 18 Feb 2020This phone support otg? yes it does.
tested using SanDisk Dual Drive
Xcover4 experience is good with me. But its internal memory makes problem. So i have
offline version of internal memory fixer and it worked.
got one but was locked to android settings . it says on the screen, no support single SKU
Still a great running phone in 2020 ✌️
It was never blazing fast to begin with but the battery life has only gotten better with updates, and the peformance has not gotten any slower.

Glad to see Samsung is updating their old 2017 devices. Thanks to the OEM!
After upgrading phone to Pie it is more smoother.
And I like OneUI options to customize appearance without downloading other Launchers.
Not sure about battery life, need to test this.
Do NOT accept the pie update for this phone. It more than halved my battery life. If I can't find a way to downgrade, the phone is completely useless. (This post took 5% of my battery to enter)
