Conclusion: The Samsung Rugby III isn’t a sleek phone, nor is it a smart phone. It is intended to be a big, rugged device that can withstand rough environments. While it performed as expected as a phone, it unfortunately was not able to meet the advertised certifications. The only reason you buy a phone like the Rugby III is because you’re hard on them, and it doesn’t seem like the phone can stand up to that kind of punishment.
Pros: Good speakerphone, Improved battery life
Cons: Hard, plastic case is not conducive to a ruggedized device, Our unit was not able to survive the water submersion test
Summary: I think everyone reading this has a cellphone, and everyone is careful with them as they are a piece of technology that is expensive and yet fragile. Most of us are in contracts with our carriers, and if something happens to our phone before our contract is up, hopefully we’ve got insurance, but if not we’ve got to pay full price for a replacement phone, which is not something most of use want to do.
Pros: Tough and Rugged, well made, Large easy to use keypad, Calls are clear
Cons: Bad picture and video quality, AT&T Bloatware junk installed, Navigation could be better
Excerpt: The Samsung Rugby 111 is a flip phone with an internal and external display, alpha-numeric keypad with large keys, and a battery rated for up to 9 hours of talk time. It features push-to- talk for walkie-talkie-esque capabilities, a speakerphone, microSD and a 3.5mm jack. The external display shows date, day, time, battery remaining indicator, etc., and rests just below a large speakerphone grille. As the name implies, the Rugby 111 is designed to be durable.
Pros: Good speakerphone, Long battery life
Cons: Poor call quality, Questionable durability (unable to survive independent water test)
