Summary: This is a GREAT phone!!! don't expect an iphone or a note 2 and your good. if you want a tough phone that can keep up with you and live to tell the tale, this is it. the functions are extremely basic and the headphones really suck but... I have destroyed the Motorola tundra 3 times already so I decided to move on. This phone can stand up to just about anything. I put this phone through hell...
Summary: The radio and mp3 music sounds great. Anyone who buys this though will definitely want the extra micro sd card, as the 7mb internal memory is nothing compared to what you will want to put on it. The camera does well for what it is. It is not a studio camera nor purported to be one, but the pictures it takes are decent and there is a zoom although some of the material said there wasn't.
Summary: Nice rugged phone - water resistant, drop resistant, dust resistant. Economical battery life. Quad band - use any SIM in the world, and wherever you are, it will work. Over-all, a good survival phone. You can keep this as a secondary phone along with your usual smartphone.
Excerpt: It was my dream phone that if one day a mobile having these capacities than i would suicide to purchase it. after all its being now 2 yrs. and i have kept it in =side cupboard bcoz i like it very much. in every day use it was like by best friend.
Summary: GT2100 The best of protected phones for me. it holds water very well. I love small fast sailing boats. I once rode in a storm. I took a Garmin eTrex and Samsung. My gps was full of water after an hour of fun, but my phone still works. I wanted to say about the price. I think the great thing give for free.
Summary: great phone very tough, and it is lashed to my life jacket when kayaking with no probs from salt water.great camera,bit annoyed by the predictive text,you have to wipe out the complete word you cant correct it!and text memory seems to fill up quick. ..
Summary: We run a small A/C company,crawling through attics and sweating buckets everyday.Out of the 10 Samsung B2100 phones i have bought in the last 2 years we have 1 broken phone. Thats a record. The phone is not as smart or intuitive as Iphone or Nokia,but I am not spending $200-400 every time someone drops a phone from a 20ft roof.Every Chef I know has one as well.So until Blackberry or Apple decides to make a waterproof mil spec phone I will stick to my tough Samsung.
Summary: I fish....alot! And my phones have suffered water damge...many times over. So far this phone is all they say it is. I've already dropped in the drink at the ramp a week after receiving it...in salt water. So far so good....no ill effects. Most so called water resistaint phones cost much more than this one and I've lost them to water damage too. It's a great little phone for the money. Not fancy but durable!
Summary: I bought this phone after much research comparing it to other "tuff phones" and found it to be the best deal for the price. It is water, dust, drop and etc. resistant. I can hear clearly on it and it looks good. I am very happy with this phone.
