Samsung says that a rugged version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is on the way

If you are worried about buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 because you're as coordinated as the Miami Marlins infield, the president of Samsung Gulf mentioned that a rugged version of the Android flagship is in the works and could be introduced within weeks; this comes after the water and dust proofing of the Sony Xperia Z received plenty of attention...

More rugged probably means unibody.

Samsung is stirring the skeptics and the undecided. They'd probably come up with a lower-tier device. They can't do glass. They can't do metal. Or proper colors. Or anything really stylish. They'd need "help" again with this one. Next please.

The glass on the S4 is the only phone using Gorrila glass 3, There is metal on the s4/s3 people are just to blind to notice that the band between the back and glass is metal, amoleds cost more to make than the LCD screens, most people would rather have saturated colors than natural like HTC uses, if you base a phone off "Style" you probably also value your phone with a "swag points" system and own a pairs of beats and like apple.

Or maybe he wants a phone with no cheap Walmart spray paint when he spends that much on a phone or flexing or creaking.. Just saying not every person wants the same damn phone.. Stop acting as if SS pays you

Why would someone buy a phone when the phone can't even display a natural colour?
And can u stop being as if SS pays you.
You are not fooling anyone here.

duhh what did u just say??
"Why would someone buy a phone when the phone can't even display a natural colour?"

woahh, Super Amoled is being known for its WOW factor,, we Amoled lovers love how the colors pop out,, we dont care a lot abt natural colors, yet SuperAMoled has the ability to tune down d color saturation and make it more natural..

Was speaking to samsung reps today, the rugged s4 will be a little but not too much bigger than the standard s4. It will be entirely network carrier decision to stock or not. The s4 itself is a lonely phone to hold and use!

I might consider a SS product if they make it look and feel what I would consider a quality phone. This might be an interesting summer for me. I don't particularly like amoled screens as I much prefer LCD tech

Ohh waterprooof phones... No wonder samsung is such a copycat. Dont say that Sony didnt invent the waterproof phone first but its the first high end smartphone phones globally that is water+dust resistance and Samdung try to copy it

no need to worry, see all sammy water & dust proof phone(UGLY, No one buys)
compare to sony active, Go , acro S and the beast Z, they cant even beat the looks of the first tough phone of sony, the Active.

if they bring some new materials and looks with S4 rugged, then Bravo sammy you finally did it and you deserve on the top. but IF NOT, hahahaha sammy fans butt hurt again.
