The reception is superb. Better than the good old Nokia 6310i. The voice clarity is clear and loud. Its the best phone i've used for phone calls...
u shold buy s3 case it is the best smart phone from all of these my experience is so good
Its a POS. It has 1g of storage, and every app (like mail, contacts, google search toolbar, samsung apps etc) is eating up that one gig. So you put up some basic apps like FB, navigation and god forbid a game, and you're completely out of space. The funny thing is, that even with 100MB remaining (of the 1gb of the 4+SD) it won't even let me see the photos i took, because there "isn't enough ram".
Thats like having a car with a 200l fuel tank, but it will only let you drive with the first 10 then shut off.
Useless smart phone.
There is a setting to answer using the home button and to hang up using the power button
Matjazz, 22 Nov 2013Can incoming phone call be answered/denied/muted with hardware keys?I've been googling and found indications that Samsung phones have these feature. I downloaded the S7710 manual and found this on page 104 titled Accessibility:
"Answering/ ending calls:
–The home key answers calls: Set the device to answer an incoming call when
pressing the Home button.
–The power key ends calls: Set the device to end a call when pressing the Power
I know I know RTFM.
Titi, 25 Nov 2013Hi... I´m close to change my phone. I´ve been thinking between XCover 2 or Galaxy ... moreIf you wanna smartphone with fancy features, cool design and high performance then Galaxy S3 is better choice. However, toughness of Xcover2 is really impresive so if I you have a sloppy hands or just wanna use your phone as underwater hammer, you should choose Xcover2
THE INTERNAL MEMORY IS NOT 4GB IT'S 1GB!
I know Samsung quote it as 4gb but that is just a scam. Pretty shocking. The internal storage space available to the user is 1gb. Rooting doesnt help.
Is is possible for gsmarena to update the specs? Or at least add a comment. It's only fair people should be know

Would you give me your opinion?
I've been using Samsung B2710 dumbphone for over two year and decided that I'll try a waterproof smartphone. I got used Motorola Defy+ and the longer I used it the more I missed my old phone. After a month I sold Defy. One of the reasons was the lack of buttons and cumbersome position of power button.
I'm glad this phone has many buttons and I was wandering if hardware buttons can be used to answer/decline/silence an incoming phone call?
It could be pretty annoying being stuck with a ringing phone just because I wear gloves that aren't fancy enough for a smart phone.
for unroot user is not good for gaming, cause of its small rom. but for root user, can be useful for gaming. not bad result on gaming. i have tried the nova 3 and call of duty and the amazing spider man, it runs perfect. no lag found. only asphalt 7 or up can't run smoothly because the micro sd run slow...
Is s7710 x-cover 2 good for games? I don't think is it same as, for example s4, only is it usable in that way?
well, xperia active has the worst battery a smartphone can have, and it's really hard to use it if you are texting person, other than that the phone is super good.
T-H, 13 Sep 2013Heh. Hard to believe the Xperia Active could be three years old, when it was only released lat... more2.5 rounded upwards.... :)
So far no replacement found that beats my 2.5 years old Xperia Active. Want small screen, lots of memory, waterproof, android, tough. Any good ideas?
