Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 hands-on review: powerful, rugged and impressive

8 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 is one of the better phones we saw at MWC 2013 , simply because it was a different proposition to the rest of the identikit Samsung Galaxy family. We didn’t get to dunk it underwater, which is still a favourite test of all mobile phone reviewers, but we’re pretty confident it can stand the heat. Also literally.

Review Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 GT-S7710 Smartphone

24 April 2013
  • Summary: A rugged companion. Samsung writes another chapter in the outdoor smartphone success story with their new Galaxy Xcover 2. Even though its inner life received a major overhaul, the end product is still just a mid-class device -- but it is certainly fit for the outdoors.
  • Pros: Good manufacturing, Fit for outdoor use, Bright display, High contrast, Quick internal memory, Practical speaker, The rugged manufacturing that makes the phone a real outdoor device. And the "Extreme Experience" edition. But it's only for the press...
  • Cons: Relatively heavy, Only 4 GB internal memory, Poor-quality front camera, The display's resolution could be a bit higher, and it could be brighter too -- the sun has a habit of shining outdoors. Better cameras wouldn't hurt either.

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

  • Conclusion: If you are looking for a rugged but fairly light and compact Android handset, look no further than the Xcover 2. Granted, it doesn't have the specs or panache of the waterproof Xperia Z , but it is shockproof and won't break the bank for you. Even if you are not the outdoorsy, but rather the careless gadget owner type that tosses their phone around and often goes into the pool with it by accident, Xcover 2 will offer a piece of mind.
  • 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

iTnews Australia
26 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Защищенные смартфоны - это отдельный тренд в индустрии. Конечно, хотелось бы иметь устройство, которое в воде не тонет и в огне не горит. С первым тезисом смартфоны почти справляются. Именно, что "почти"...
  • Pros: Защищенный смартфон на Android 4.1.2
  • Cons: Не выдержал испытание на погружение до 1 м менее 5 мин.

  • Summary: Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 holder, hvad den lover, og kan faktisk tåle at være med, når det går hedt til. Det er ganske imponerende. Den bliver godt nok våd, når den kommer i vand, og falder fra hinanden, når den tabes. Men elektronikken kan holde til det, og et øjeblik efter er den klar igen. Som smartphone er den ikke i superklassen, men til prisen klarer den sig fint.
  • Pros: En civil toughphone, som kan tåle det meste, uden at prale med det. Hastigheden er ganske okay.
  • Cons: Ikke så robust som kæmpetelefonerne. Den skulle samles imellem mishandlingerne.

  • Summary: Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 skilter ikke med at den er robust. Den ligner en alminnelig smartmobil, men kan utsettes for overraskende mye.

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.

Обзор Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 (GT-S7710)

2 October 2013
  • 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.
