Expert Review

Phone Arena
14 January 2013
  • 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

Samsung Rugby SGH-A837

CNET
4 March 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837's could use a few improvements, but it remains a solid choice for a rugged, straight-forward phone with a loaded feature set.

Samsung Rugby 3 review: Built tough, but not for calls

CNET
4 March 2011
  • Summary: Very poor call quality is especially unacceptable on a simple cell phone. Unless you require AT&T's push-to-talk service, keep looking.
  • Pros: The Samsung Rugby 3 has a terrifically responsive dial pad and enhanced push-to-talk support.
  • Cons: Audio quality was subpar, the shared headset/charger jack is inconvenient, and for a durable phone, the body could be grippier.

Samsung Rugby SGH-a837 Reviewed

25 September 2008
  • 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

19 February 2012
  • 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)
