  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: 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.

Good phone, not indestructible.

  • Excerpt: 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.

WORST PHONE I'VE EVER OWNED

rugbydisappointed, Samsung
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: This is a good phone, the only problems I have with it that keep me from calling it a great phone are limited battery life and low speaker volume. I am one of those technical support guys.

performs well and easy to handle

squigward, Samsung
7 November 2012
  • Excerpt: 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.
