Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 review: Gone fishing

GSM Arena
23 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung S7710 Galaxy Xcover 2 is a niche product - sitting at the intersection between people who need a rugged phone (be it for work or for play) and the people who need a smartphone. It's a major upgrade over the original Galaxy Xcover and since it's been nearly two years since that came out, users might be more than willing to upgrade.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support, 4" 16M-color LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution, Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX, 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali-400MP GPU, 1GB of RAM, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, face and smile detection, image stabilization, VGA secondary camera, 720p HD video recording at 30fps; Underwater shooting mode, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n support; DLNA and Wi...
  • Cons: Big and heavy, even for a water resistant phone, Reflective screen with poor color rendition, Battery could have been bigger

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 Review

Phone Arena
12 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Galaxy Xcover 2 is Samsung's first shot at rugged telephony for the year, as the Android handset sports water-, shock- and dust-proof certifications . The Xcover 2 upgrades the specs of its predecessor, and throws in some neat features, like a dedicated shutter key and an Aqua mode in the camera interface that lets you shoot underwater without special housing. Is the phone's tough soul a worthy enough advantage to overlook the midrange specs and somewhat bulky exterior?
  • Pros: Rugged yet ergonomic waterproof handset, Good picture and video quality
  • Cons: Outdoor screen visibility could be better, No ambient light sensor, No second mic for noise-cancellation is a challenge outdoors

  • Excerpt: Samsung has always enjoyed dabbling with the rugged crowd: be it the original Xcover or the Beam range, it's enjoyed offering up more robust phones. The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 brings with it a whole new gamut of features and functionality and really shows straight away that it's not a phone to be messed with.

Samsung S7710 Galaxy Xcover 2

1 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Den nye Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 (S7710) er forbedret på en række væsentlige punkter i forhold til forgængeren. Skærmen, en såkaldt WVGA TFT touchscreen, er vokset til 4 tommer og har en opløsning på 480 x 800 pixels. Ydeevnen er ligeledes kraftigt forbedret, da forgængerens 800 MHz single-core processor er udskiftet med en 1 GHz dual-core processor, ligesom styresystemet naturligvis er opgraderet til Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

  • Summary: Таким образом, сильными сторонами данной модели являются производительность и незаезженный внешний вид корпуса. Ну это не считая того, что главным коньком линейки Xcover, разумеется, выступает защищенный корпус, однако наш экземпляр, как вы видите, дал течь. Но поскольку это не коммерческий образец, мы бы хотели еще раз убедиться в способности корпуса не пропускать воду на другом экземпляре и надеюсь, такая возможность у нас появится в скором времени.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 – test smartfona dla aktywnych

25 August 2013
  • Summary: Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 zrobił na mnie bardzo pozytywne wrażenie. Po wyjęciu z pudełka nie spodziewałem się ujrzeć stylowego telefonu, a jednak. Wzmocniona konstrukcja nadaje mu charakteru i wyróżnia go na tle innych modeli. Jeżeli kierować się tylko wzornictwem, można powiedzieć, że jest to „męski” smartfon.
  • Pros: - wtrzymała konstrukcja, - certyfikat IP67, - czytelny wyświetlacz, - dobra jakość dźwięku, - atrakcyjny wygląd
  • Cons: - skromna ilość wewnętrznej pamięci dostępnej dla użytkownika, - wyświetlacz, w porównaniu do reszty obudowy, mało odporny na uszkodzenia

  • Conclusion: Смартфон Samsung XCover2 производит хорошее впечатление по громкости звонка, и по качеству исполнения. Это один из немногих защищенных устройств такого плана, которые смело можно называть универсальными решениями, да и настоящих конкурентов на данный момент у него практически нет.

  • Summary: En rigtig fin smartphone til dem, der færdes meget i naturen eller bare ikke er gode til at passe på deres telefon. Byggekvaliteten er således bedre, end vi er vant til fra Samsung. Om designet er pænt, er nok et spørgsmål om smag. Specifikationer og ydelse får os ikke til at tabe mælet, men er absolut tilfredsstillende i forhold til prisen. Det samme er de smarte Samsung-funktioner, som følger med sammen med TouchWiz-brugerfladen.
