Summary: Ruggedised phones often look cheap but Samsung has given this one an almost classy finish. Simple to access menus and chunky easy-to-use rubberised buttons means the basics are well-covered. No 3G, wi-fi or GPS, but at least there's an extra microphone for noise cancellation, and even a torch.
Pros: Excellent shock, water and dust resistance. Funky features. Okay styling.
Cons: Lacks features many more basic non-ruggedised phones have, like 3G.
Summary: As the name would suggest, the Samsung Solid looks and feels, well solid. It's also surprisingly light. The screen is disappointingly small. The close proximity of the keys proves problematic, particularly if you are wearing gloves.
Pros: More features and lighter than the JCB Toughphone.
Cons: The simplest of tasks, unlocking the keypad, is beyond annoying.
Summary: It's never going to earn awards for its good looks, but the Samsung Solid Extreme's most important function is to protect itself from a clumsy owner or harsh environment. It does this very well and also offers some nifty extras.
Pros: Looks okay. Has some nifty features. Dust, water and shock resistance are excellent.
Cons: Is missing some features- such as 3G - that are found on a lot of more basic ruggedised phones.
Summary: The Samsung B2100 Xplorer is a straightforward and highly reliable mobile phone with neat looks. The buttons are clear and the menu is fast and intuitive. Besides the shockproof and waterproof housing, it allows for expanding the memory, connecting to a Bluetooth car kit or using the FM radio.
Conclusion: Para los usuarios más rudos que no quieren perder comunicación cuando van de campamento o están haciendo deportes extremos, este celular tiene un diseño resistente al agua, lodo y caídas, además de reproductor de música y herramientas de organización (cronómetro, calculadora, convertidor de...
Pros: De diseño resistente, cuenta con una linterna potente y la memoria se puede expandir hasta 8 GB.
Cons: No tiene 3G ni Wi-Fi, y podría incorporar una cámara con mayor resolución.
