Summary: Overall the Samsung Rugby is a very good phone, but it does share one negative that I have found in other Samsung products - the battery life is short. It has be to be recharged at least every 2 days, even when I just have it on but have not been actively using it.
Summary: After dialing a phone number, at times I am required to enter an extension number after the call has been answered by the company I have called; however, after the call has been answered, the screen goes blank and I have difficulty accessing the keyboard to dial an extension; more often than not,...
Summary: Solid phone with great protection from physical mishaps and environmental factors. The Rugby Smart performs as advertised. While it would be great if the software could be updated above Gingerbread this phone does everything a smart phone needs to do.
Summary: I have had this phone for just at a year, everything was going good then it started to overheat in my pouch. The battery would drain within a VERY short time then the phone would start acting strange as in NOT able to text, when you call someone it won't actually make the call until a few minutes...
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Durable, Lightweight, great features
Summary: I've had my Samsung Rugby Smart for several months, and I do love it. It's a great phone with pretty good software. The phone however is not as indestructible as is advertised. It fell about two feet onto the ground and the screen shattered instantly.
Pros: Realistic color, Lightweight, waterproof
Cons: Did not meet expectations, screen easily shatters
Summary: I love the durability of the phone and the style. However, this phone crashes on me every day sometimes more than once. It's real slow. I've owned for about 5 months now and can't wait to replace it.
Summary: The phone operating system is stable and don't freeze. The flashlight needs a timeout option as it is easily turned on in a pocket or purse and will run the battery down without shutting off. The voice is a bit muffled probably due to it being water proof.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Durable, easy to hold and handle, no need for aditional cover
Cons: no ability to change fonts in messaging, timeout for flashlight, ringer volume
