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: 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.
