Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro Review
12 June 2013
Conclusion: The $100 Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is a capable rugged smartphone for a low price. It may catch the eye of people who need a device that can withstand some rough and tumble conditions. And if you’re on the clumsy side and keep dropping and breaking your phone, this one will likely last you for two years, at least. It could also make a great first smartphone for kids. It’s not too expensive and can survive carelessness.
Pros: Compact, grip-able design, Withstands water and scratches, Speedy performance, Long battery life
Cons: Low-res display, Runs outdated version of Android, Uninspiring camera
Summary: With its rugged design, zippy performance and long battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is a solid choice for smartphone shoppers looking for a device that can stand up to the rigors of everyday use and then some. The 3G-only Kyocera Hydro is a good choice for bargain hunters, but we prefer the Rugby Pro for its 4G LTE speeds and beefier specs. We just wish the camera were quicker on the draw and that it ran the latest Jelly Bean software.
Pros: Tough, durable design, Above average performance, All-day battery life, Lightning fast 4G LTE speeds
Cons: Running old Ice Cream Sandwich, Display could be brighter, Slow camera
