Waterproof phone not actually waterproof
Ian Johnston "Geek", Amazon

Summary: This phone is decent, but that's about the extent of it. When I purchased it, it had a mediocre processor and screen, and was missing a couple of features that are pretty standard (notification LED and automatic brightness sensor are the ones that leap to mind). But the big draw was that it was waterproof and could handle being fumbled without completely destroying itself. I've dropped it once or twice, and had no problems.
Excellent waterproof phone with very limited storage
19 June 2013
Summary: I am very happy with my phone except for it's limited internal storage of less than 1 GB. For the price range it is the best waterproof phone on the market. Compared to the competition (other waterproof phones in this price range): Pros: Front camera, big screen, lots of RAM, tough, physical camera button, underwater camera setting, shortcut to torch setting, recent software Cons: Only 0.98 GB of storage space for apps. No abitlity to move apps to the SD card.
Summary: At first I liked this phone, its a nice size, light, apps are good (as thery are for most androids). However I have a big issue with the amount of memory. At first I thought I could solve it with an external sd card, however, the only thing I can put onto it is my photos. I am limited with the number of apps I can have and cannot have all the apps I would like to use.
Good for outdoors use but very limited internal memory for apps

Summary: Warning - this review and rating is based on the phones use for outdoor activities ( hiking etc ) rather than general use of the phone. I didn't buy this to replace my daily phone - I bought it for one purpose and that's to take with me when I go hiking. It will replace the aging SatMap 10+ which I used for a few years but its slightly bulky and the screen was dated 10 years ago and now its ancient in computer terms with its 3.5 inch screen with 240 x 320 pixel...
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 hands-on review: powerful, rugged and impressive
18 March 2013
Excerpt: The Xcover 2 upgrades the specs of its predecessor, and throws in some neat features, like a dedicated shutter...
Pros: Good manufacturing, Fit for outdoor use, Bright display, High contrast, Quick internal memory, Practical speaker,Rugged yet ergonomic waterproof handset, Good picture and video quality
Cons: Relatively heavy, Only 4 GB internal memory, Poor quality front camera, Outdoor screen visibility could be better, No ambient light sensor, No second mic for noise cancellation is a challenge outdoors. Poor battery life.
Summary: 1)Le contrôle de luminosité est manuel.En raison de la simplicité de sa mise en oeuvre,un contrôle par capteur de luminosité n'est pas nécessaire. 2)Contrairement au Motorola Defy et Defy+,on ne peut pas configurer le WIFI avec des adresses IP fixes.En fait,cela n'est pas génant car il suffit d'activer DHCP dans le modem routeur.Le téléphone accepte sans problème le protocole WPA2 mixte.Je n'ai pas testé le protocole WEP qui ne présente plus d'intérêt.
Summary: Venant d'un vieux motorola defy, ce téléphone a une fluidité agréable, l'image est nette, claire et lumineuse, le tactile répond très bien et la wifi, le bluetooth ainsi que les différent réseaux sont captés parfaitement. Cependant, comme tout le monde je trouve dommage qu'il reste si peu de mémoire interne a cause du nombre d'applications inutiles qui ne peuvent être désinstallée, de plus l'autonomie en terme de batterie n'est pas énorme puisque je dois charger tous les...
