Not IP67

kukuer, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: Ruggedness and being IP67 were the main reaasons I have purchased this item. Well, the phone as a phone itself is really great - fast, good screen, etc. The Bluetoooth is not ideal, but for phone calls it was acceptable (didn't want to connect through the music channel), but this is not a big problem. The main and only frustration is that it is not waterproof. I poured the very small amount of the liquid on it just a couple of times and it stopped being able to charge.

Bulky and slow for the times

Painter1982, Wireless AT&T
10 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm now on my second replacement phone. As the phone would shut down for no reason and everything I download ended up on my husbands phone. I felt like and had to push many times to get the keyboard to even work. Battery life barely makes it though the day. With average use. I set up different tones for my contacts without it actually working. The phone is almost twice as thick at the Samsung galaxy and is tight to fit in your pocket.
  • Pros: easy use
  • Cons: bulky , slow , gliches

"Average phone at best but very durable"

jeffprandall, CNET
13 June 2013
  • Pros: Durable Most users wont need a case
  • Cons: Slow - after a while the phone gets slow moving from app to app Bad reception - we have to hold the phone away from our faces for users to hear us. If its pressed against our face the call gets muted Battery - With email setup barely makes it a day

Rugged? Broke on first small drop

alaskaDave, Samsung
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I've been very happy with this phone for the last four months, until earlier today when it slipped out of my hand as I got out of my car and the screen shattered when it hit the pavement. Wasn't more than a 2ft drop, but the screen glass broke just the same as any other non rugged phone. It has held up to water and dust just fine, but I was expecting/hoping for more damage resistance than that. The phone itself works much much much better than the DroidX it replaced.
  • Pros: Bright display, Realistic color
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

If it wasn't for the God awful keyboard it would be great.

JustJeff1973, Wireless AT&T
22 March 2013
  • Summary: Yes I am a switched Blackberry user. I have tried an Iphone and this is my second android phone. I really really miss my Blackberry. The features on this phone are really cool and all but when it comes down to it, the keyboard is the main component for texting, browsing, IMing, or using any of the calender features. AND THIS KEYBOARD IS TERRIBLE. There are two installed and they are both just God awful terrible.
  • Pros: battery life is super great
  • Cons: worst. keyboard. ever

Too small of a internal storage

globi, Samsung
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I have used this phone now just over a year and will have to replace battery very soon or get new phone. The only thing I like about this phone is the water proof feature.

Disappointed

Sharon, Samsung
26 November 2013
  • Summary: I went to my cell provider to "upgrade" because I was starting to feel my battery life was not what it should be. I was charging too often. I never would have believed that I would need to charge my new phone twice a day. I could not be more disappointed with this phone and it's battery life.

Not the greatest

AstroMonkey, Samsung
3 September 2013
  • Summary: This phone was pretty good up until about a month later. The software updates never work, I've had it flashed twice to reset the software due to malfunctions. I'm on the second battery since the thing can't hold a charge. It plays games with me when it comes to texting (randomly decides when it wants to let you type andwhen it doesn't). The wifi always says it has an error leading to restarting the phone.

It's not worth spending any money on it

caps, Samsung
24 July 2013
  • Summary: It has the basic features of any smart phone. I've had it for just over a year. I've had several problems including; connecting to my computer, slow browsing, and the screen freezes.
