hello morning from st Vincent my Samsung phone is lock by a code that was put in we forgot the code number what can we do cuz it reads phone lock how to remove plz
Peter, 07 Jul 2015Well I have a B2710 and I've just received the B550 this morning. First impressions. Its ... moreThank you for your first impressions. I guess I'm with you there. And if only the phone wasn't so... BIG. B2710 is quite a bit thicker, but not so wide and tall and sort of sits in your hand quite comfortably, with 550 I'm a bit hesitative, it's basicly the same size as 4.5 -5 inch smartphone. I guess the "bigness" was the dealbreaker for me. I had a little Samsung 1081 a while ago and that was a perfect tough phone(excellent build quality. Well, ok, basicly all you could do with it was calling and texting, but still...) But I am happy to see Samsung still makes toughphones
Well I have a B2710 and I've just received the B550 this morning.
Its quite big, larger than I was expecting.
The back cover is a flimsier design the way it clips on, I would expect it to come off quite easily if the phone was dropped, unlike the B2710.
The screen is bigger and definitely better than the B2710, and its quicker, both to be expected on a much newer phone.
The torch is in my opinion worse it doesn't throw the light in a focused beam like the B2710 does which is like a normal flashlight, the button on the B550 is just a toggle switch for the flash which is unfocused and just throws light everywhere
I can confirm it has a 1500mah battery
IT DOES NOT HAVE GPS :(
For me ultimately it is not an upgrade, if it had GPS and it didn't have that flimsy back cover it definitely would be, unfortunately Ill be sending it back and sticking with the B2710 for now, very disappointed because I like everything else about it.

Kongfupanda, 01 Jul 2015Where r u from? Plz tell me it's price(in $) plzIn Europe it's about 90-120 euro (about 100-130 dollars) plus shipping.
Why would anyone buy this ? There are way better phones than this. You can buy from Galaxy Xcover series from Samsung if you want a rugged phone.

Kongfupanda, 01 Jul 2015Where r u from? Plz tell me it's price(in $) plzI'm from Portugal, although some other person commented of it being available in Belgium.
Unlocked and unsubsidized it is priced around what gsmarena states.
Just to avoid confusion, Galaxy Xcover 3 is not the Xcover 3. Some people seem to confuse both.
Being sold in my country, here are the specs from some stores:
Memory: Internal: 256 MB / RAM: 128 MB / Slot type: microSD / Max. slot capacity: 16 GB
Display: 2.4" / TFT / Resolution: 320 x 240 pixels / 167 ppi
Camera: 3.15 Mpixels / Flash: LED / Video: Yes
Network: 3G: 900/2100 MHz / GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
Wireless: Bluetooth: 3.0
Connection: Jack 3.5 mm / micro USB 2.0
Weight: 124 grams
Dimensions: 129 x 56.2 x 13.95 mm
SAR: 0.78 W/kg
Sadly seems that it has Bluetooth 3.0 so no efficient nor compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
Also, no GPS mention in the specs.
Feels wider than the gsmarena images show.
Internal memory seems to be 256MB but there are a few stores that state 128MB.
Battery seems to be 1500mAh, but some stores state 1300mAh.
Talk time (3G Network): 9h
There is mention to Google Mobile Services and Mobile Tracker, not sure what that is.
