Samsung Rugby Smart (AT&T)

30 April 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Rugby Smart can take plenty of punches, without skimping on the smartphone features. Unlike other rugged phones, it's easy on the eyes and it can run on 4G.
  • Pros: The Samsung Rugby Smart's rugged but slim design can withstand a dunking and a slam against the wall. Its camera comes with many features, and images and videos look great on the Super AMOLED screen.
  • Cons: The Rugby Smart's voice quality is a little muffled and the camera's autofocus feature isn't the fastest.

Samsung Rugby Smart review: Tough INC.

GSM Arena
8 March 2012
  • Conclusion: There is a lot to like in the Samsung Rugby Smart. The smartphone is tough, yet extremely pocketable. Its Super AMOLED screen is perfect for outdoor activities, and the battery performs really well. On the software side of things, there are no complaints either. TouchWiz 4.0 provides one of the best Android Gingerbread experiences around. Sadly, we can't tell you if Ice Cream Sandwich will make it to the device though.
  • Cons: Not exactly a looker, Hardware is not exactly at the cutting edge, No dedicated camera button

Samsung Rugby Smart Review

5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Again I'm not entirely sure why you'd want to purchase this device when you've got the Galaxy S II available to you for the same price. The only reason why you'd want this device instead is the hardcore resistance, and when it comes down to it - toss any device down a mountain and it'll break in two.

Samsung Rugby Smart Review

Phone Arena
2 March 2012
  • Conclusion: AT&T customers should be relieved to know that they now have a respectable rugged smartphone solution thanks to the Samsung Rugby Smart, and when you factor in its $100 on-contract price and set of features, it does offer quite a punch for the value. Needless to say, not only does it stand out for being impervious to most punishment, but it’s also one of the few to be waterproof as well – and that’s something we don’t typically see!
  • Pros: Ruggedness and waterproof, Packs a Super AMOLED display, Decent $100 price
  • Cons: Muffled calling quality, Cramped on-screen keyboards, Paltry 2GB of memory

Samsung Rugby Smart

26 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Looking for a serious, rugged smartphone? Take a look at the Samsung Rugby Smart . Apart from sporting a more mainstream look than most rugged handsets, it actually runs a smart OS in the form of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. That alone makes it an interesting option among the half a dozen or so other rugged phone alternatives. And if you’re an AT&T subscriber, it’s one of your best smart and rugged options.
