Really disappointing when you pay for something and it doesn't do what it is supposed to do. Rip off!
A good phone design. Excellent grip. Good battery life. I've owned Xcover1, Xcover2 and now own Xcover3. I wanted to upgrade to Xcover4 but I tried the phone and it does not work correctly. I've read forums and this problem is on all Xcover4's. Then I met a friend who already bought the phone and he has the same problem. It is not possible to play any games on the phone that require you to touch the screen continuously. Touchscreen is not as responsive as it should be (especially with gloves) and it loses the finger if held for few seconds. Samsung does not recognize any problems and denies any defects.
Up until the fix it I will not upgrade nor do I recommend this phone due to basic problem with touchscreen responsiveness (very valuable feature on rugged phone).
I forgot to mention that Xcover3 has a flash much much brighter. Unfortunately Samsung made Xcover4 flash more color friendly but way less useful as a flashlight.
I'd be happy to be informed when the problem is solved. I will get the phone immediately.
Why don`t you review Tecno and Infinix devices.
They are worthy substitutes to all these over priced brands.
A very nice phone, compared to my last one it's very good, a nice camera, very adjustable. The battery is great and the screen is responsive. If you're looking for something great but cheap, I think this is the greatest choice.
I used them from a week. Excelent battery life - 2 days in heavy usage. 3D games like Fifa and Real racing - no problems. No overheating like Xperias. Camera - not like a flagship but for this price is so so good. And in the night shoots too. I put here a link with pics Xc4 vs Lg G5 vs X style.
How many of writhers here talking bad thinks about the phone that not used. So many heaters.
Not great. I bought unlocked from Samsung and it has no FM Radio Receiver! Screen is ISP and neither bright nor responsive. I often end up pressing 3 times on a screen to get it to work. 13MPX camera is not able to focus although it does the auto-focal zooming but then it settles at something that is neither sharp, nor contrast. it kinda looks like 0.3MPX quality. It has 16GB, of which I used 4.64GB according to an app. The phone tells me I used 1896MB docs/images/audio/video/apps, it also tells me 186MB free memory left. So from 16GB you won't see 10-14GB at all. IP68 well we all know any company can claim it the actual tests are not done by any thirty-party and frankly if no gorilla glass it needs a solid case to defend it all around. The phone is ridiculously heavy for how little features it has. My only sense of this phone is if this is like nokia 3310 kind of device that is build to last but I doubt it. I did buy this phone because I love to have big lasting battery but practically it's not that great. I use 50-60% charge in one day with little to no use. I also bought this phone because it has low screen resolution hoping it would boost battery but I was looking at 4 days up time. CPU was surprisingly ok, slow but not to a point of freezing. This is my 4th Samsung phone and I am disappointing at this one. I think it should not be $375CAD but $80 for anyone to buy up right.
I don't understand people who compare phone of 200 euro with the phone of 800 euro. For this price, I think that this is best posible option.
After one month, I cannot find anything which is not perfect. Network signal is much stronger than any of my previous phones, duration of battery is one full day of heavy use....no software bugs, no any problems, more than enough internal memory, solid quality of camera....for this price, excelent choice.
in regards to S7 edge comment. I have S7 edge screen - cracked 2 months into my contract. It's $900 device that I will have to pay out out of my pocket. I had S5 Active before S7 and it lasted 3 years until I put it on a shelf but the screen and everything is in perfect condition. Never froze on me and even today able to stay on for 4 days. In regards to Xcover 4 I don't get myself why there is no gorilla glass here. and battery is not rated long either.
samsung are you serious all that protection, all that money and no gorrilla glass

Clearly, there are a lot of problems with this phone.
I'll wait to next year's 2018 G391F model. Hopefully Samsung will have sorted all the problems out.
Next year's phone might have these specs:
Chipset Exynos 7870 Octa
CPU Octa-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A53
So a faster 1.6GHz CPU and a faster Mali-T830MP2 GPU. Also, I expect it will have 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Touchscreens are seriously bugged and glitchy.
I have bough this mobile phone Samsung Xcover less than one month ago, and I am very disappointed with the mobile phone.
I have also de Xcover 3 and the comparing both the Xcover 3 is far better regarding the screen.
First reason: The bright or the light of the screen is pulsating, it is not stable. It is very annoying.
Second reason: If both phones are set to the maximum bright, X Cover 3 is much lighter than the new Xcover4.
Third Reason: The sensitivity of the XCover 4 is also annoying, it loses the touch or the contact even if you are pressing the screen.
I will try to return the product and have my money back.
I was really interested in this phone since it has 16Gb of memory but now I wonder which phone should I buy.
