Anonymous, 18 Jul 2012I purchased mine 13th July 2012 paid AU$349.00, first handset faulty battery(samsung replaced ... moreI have a samsung galaxy 3 and a nissan navara D22. My phone will connect to the factory bluetooth in the car - but no one can hear me...telstra said the phone is okay - maybe not compatible with the one in the car. Surely, a new car and a new phone would be compatible...must be a way to fix this!!
This phone will stop working at end of August 2012 on Telstra Australia services
can´t find working app for my xcover phone call recording. tried a lots of them. no one works!?
Not a bad phone. Reception is sometimes a bit ordinary from a main provider (Telstra), and sometimes the phone switches itself off. i like the size and the battery lasts about 24 hrs with light use. I have not had any major issues with it, perfect phone, Nn, but defintly not a bad one.
Anonymous, 26 May 2012This phone is terrible, restarts all the time, reception is poor, low memory and THE WORST BAT... moreNice to read someone has just about exactly same thoughts as I do. Internal memory of 150 MB is just ridiculous when a some software update (like facebook) takes some 80 MB. I had to load the battery every night even though I never keep wifi, bluetooth etc on unless I need them (like an hour or 2 a day or so).
But I dont want to be overly complaining. There was a lot of good in that phone, too. Very fairly priced (I paid 180 €), you can use almost all applications (no flash support :( ) and for me it worked without lag or anything, not slippery so it stays in hand, and the fact that it can withstand dropping (to some degree and ofcourse you can get unlucky) and water is a great feature. :)
Keo Chhorthong Js, 21 Jul 2012To this phone, Can i upgrade its version or not? Please kindly tell me!I had to take my phone to the service since it keps shutting down and kept hunging up calls. I was told that they will upgrade the version which will fix these problems. So yes, the version is upgradable :)

xyxyx, 28 Jun 2012got the phone as a gift from the spouse since she says it suit my criteria for a good phone...... moreYep, same thing happened here. Dropped from just over a foot onto tiled kitchen floor during first week. No sign of any damage until next day. Screen had 3 big cracks through it. Really disappointed as I am a builder and reckoned it would suit me. Then Samsung started being difficult. Is it really so hard to listen to what is being said? Really frustrated!
xyxyx, i think, the developer is reducing the thickness of their product (gorilla glass), to minimise the initial cost, thus it may be too thin to withstand ordinary bumps and drops. Just, shame on them because lying to the other peoples..
got the phone as a gift from the spouse since she says it suit my criteria for a good phone... less than a week on.. accidentally slipped the phone at waist height on cement ground and guess what the screen is all busted and cracked... my question is what's the whole point of the gorilla glass?
when this phone came to my place, and very2 witting this product samsung S5690 galaxy XCOver
its a great fone for people like me working in a engineering field...now i have droped in water, fell from a 2 meter height and works just perfectly...
those of you who need a fone like this go for it....
remember i said the word "need" and those who want a fone go for the s3...i got both..love them...
