Call quality & battery life


Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 Review

A rugged phone often requires some compromises – in this case, call quality is what suffers most. The earpiece is loud but not really clear, while the microphone is a bit on the quiet side.

On the other hand, battery life is particularly impressive: the removable 2,800 mAh battery can last very long, thanks to the small-resolution screen and the low-power CPU: in our own benchmark, the Xcover 4 lasted an impressive 10 hours and 43 minutes. However, charging took more than 2 hours (132 minutes, to be exact), which is far from ideal.

Conclusion


Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 Review

So the big question that remains is: whom is this phone designed for? Essentially, it’s people who need a basic device that can withstand a ton of abuse – a tiny niche, but apparently still large enough for Samsung to want to fill it every other year.

And for what it is – an entry-level device with rugged exterior – the Xcover 4 is amazing: it’s comfortable to hold, sturdy, and thanks to the progress of Android, entirely usable even with its weak specs. So if you’re the target audience for such a phone, its asking price of €259 (about $290) may well be worth the experience you’re getting in return.



Pros

  • Resistant to water, dust, and other harsh conditions
  • Extremely comfortable to hold
  • Comes with Nougat out of the box

Cons

  • Performance gets choppy under heavier load
  • The Xcover key doesn’t work when the screen is off

writer give it 7/10 but can't recommend any other smartphones that are better at conclusion part, lol..

he know this is the best "rugged smartphone" for that price range, but can't give it higher score because it's not a flagship

What about the Active models? An older S5 Active of S6 Active would be great too.
