Samsung B2700 Review
When we talk about rugged phones, every additional feature is warmly welcomed. Still, the importance of making and receiving calls plays a major part. The performance of the B2700 in this respect turned out to be a bit above average. On our end of the line the voices sounded real but also a bit quiet, which means that you may experience some difficulties when you’re in a noisy environment. On the other end the situation was different: the voices were loud enough, but also sharp and unclear.
The manufacturer has supplied the device with quite a powerful 1300mAh battery, but strangely it is said to last just the average 5 hours – not super result for a rugged phone.
In the end, the Samsung B2700 seems lika a good and fair solution for the average user. Moreover, it has better chances to survive with the careless users compared to a standard phone. During our tests, we “accidentally” managed to drop the phone a few times and it stayed completely functional. This, combined with its pretty decent multimedia skills makes for a device that’s worth its price. It also allows for viewing office documents, operating with e-mail, video conversations and an acceptable internet experience, which contributes to its overall performance.
- It’s virtually invulnerable, compared to standard phones.
- A powerful flashlight
- An additional camera for video calls
- The display has a low resolution
- A thermometer is missing
- Lacks an HTML browser

Great phone!!!! had it three months now, and cant fault it. i am a powdercoater by trade. deals with very fine dusty particals (think of flour in the air), day in and day out. Previous phone (6110n)had to be pulled apart and cleaned every night! didnt last 6 months. Not with this baby, clean as the day i bought it, no powder anywhere in the battery compartment or under the sim. I am also an avid 4wd enthusist and this thing has been dropped in mud and all sorts, love just bein able to rinse it off. not great on the features, but one hell of a tough phone!

I have use many of samsung mobile phone the most I like was the B2100,I go on Biking trips..where i have to get wet, dusty,sometime drop phone from my hand,,but my b2100 always fulfill my needs..., on one such trip i lost n later i went to buy a new pair but,the dealer info me that the production was stop n they had newer version B2700 but, this time its was not waterproof or schookproof just water n shock resistent only.this new b2700 too, is giving gud result but not as gud as the b2100.since 1999 i hve used moe than 15 sets of Mobile phones mostly Nokia Made but, many of them slip off my hand n during journey or at home n got damage but, lastly i was happy to find B2100.though i had to negotiate with its sftware config. but,i had secondary phone lock in a protactive safe.I hve seen New Samsung Xcover which is very much of my choice..so, i want to have more detail on it, or if Samsung is preparing for mare latest version of such Tough High End Phones.
