Durable and practical

Nubian89, Samsung
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I have had horrible luck with past cell phones practically being demon possessed and disintegrating on me. Sooo not the case with this phone! It's held up for two years after being dropped, having been wet, and dealing with my general clumsiness. It's a very reliable phone! I like that I don't have to worry about butt dialing, that it is a traditional flip phone with buttons. It is no non-sense and rugged.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Durable

Best non-smartphone out there!

Videojack, Samsung
26 November 2013
  • Summary: This phone, Samsung Rugby® III, is extremely durable, ideally sized, feature packed, intuitive, with a long battery life and it took me one year to find a feature I wanted that wasn't included, an hourly chime. Photos are above average while video is usable for documenting something that occurred, not HD. Otherwise, this phone is the pinnacle of flip phone technology, my preference.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, long-life replaceable batteries, feature packed, ideally sized
  • Cons: no hourly chime

Tough and durable

studebuick7erq, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this item because my husband is always dropping and breaking our regular cell phone. This was the only heavy duty phone I was able to get. I am with t-mobil and this is ATT but it still works. The only thing is I cannot use all the features this phone has because of my carrier. I would buy this again if anything happened to the one I have.

Slow phone button operation

Apachetears, Samsung
12 September 2013
  • Summary: The Phone is rugged and able to take hard activity. The phone is slow to respond to button push commands. Texting takes longer while awaiting the results of a button push. The location of buttons for PTT along the sides make inadvertent operation of buttons while handling or carrying phone. This is a good rugged phone, built tough I would highly recommend this phone for bicycling, or other rough sports.
  • Pros: Bright display, Durable, Realistic color
  • Cons: slow operation of button commands

Great, if you don't want a working phone.

AlanMG, Samsung
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Phone turns off by itself. Makes no noise when it does so. Resetting, restoring, etc. do not fix issue. Support from Samsung is sympathetic but pathetic. Will only repair, not replace, so that that when your new phone does not work, you end up without a phone for two weeks (or more) while they fix their product. Told that they don't have facilities to provide replacement phones. Guess that says it all, too many that don't work and need to be replaced.
  • Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, does not work as a phone.

Ease of use

barret1046, Samsung
29 August 2013
  • Summary: I got this phone because my company will not pay allow us to have smartphones. If you want a basic phone that does not need a data plan this is not the one you want. Most of the features on this phone require a data plan of some sort, which makes it an expensive basic phone if you don't have data. Also the navagation button is not real user frendly if you have big hands. Most of the time you either will back out of what you are doing or go to the wrong screen.
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, useless without data
