Samsung GALAXY Xcover Preview

The Samsung GALAXY Xcover stands out with its IP67 certification. In plain words, the phone is allegedly resistant to dust, dirt and submersion in water at up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.

Dobrze że pojawia się więcej urządzeń tego typu bo dotychczas była tylko defy a zapowiadana xperia active też tania nie będzie. Mam nadzieję że samsung będzie kosztował poniżej 800 zł

What about visibility in direct sunlight?
I want to use my android smartphone as a GPS device for a mountainbike, and without this feature it's pretty worthless.

I agree regarding sunlight visibility and also would like to know battery life in real life scenarious. I hope they will update its visual appeal because at the moment it looks rather cheap with this gray plastic surrounding black. One thing that could set this phone "above" Defy+ is price, make it sub-160$ without contract and youll have best seller, IMO.
