ROSS CELLULAR - NEW GSM UNLOCKED SAMSUNG RUGBY SMART CELLPHONE
16 April 2013
Summary: Hello, I purchased the product because it was presented as new. I received it in no time but when I examined the unit, one of the sim card slot is broken. At first I am okay with it but now the battery is dwindling. I have to charge the battery morning and afternoon otherwise I will have a dead cellphone. I paid so much for the unit expecting a better cellphone thinking that I will be satisfied with the unit but not at all.
Summary: Researched for a rugged water resistant phone and finally purchased Rugby Smart. I love everything about this phone except one BIG issue! The call quality absolutely sucks! Severe echo for people on other end (their own voice echos back to them after a 3-4 second delay)! I will be sending back to vendor for replacement as it seems some of these phones are fine, maybe I just got a bad one, but if the replacement is the same I will get something else.... So disappointed...
Summary: I don't use a lot of apps, but the limited RAM on this (350MB, I believe) is so low that it is noticeable even when opening/closing the email app. Also, after less than a week, suddenly the internet browser stopped working when connected to wi-fi. It works over data and there is clearly an internet connection because I get email while on wi-fi. Will be returning it.
Summary: This is a great phone. It is tough, easy to grip, I feel confident that it will survive any tumbles it takes. I had the original Rugby for a long time and loved it, this is a worthy smarter successor. The performance is fine for what I use it for. The only problem I have had is that it comes with a feature that allows you to turn the flashlight on while the phone is locked by holding the volume up button. Sounds great, but this happens almost every day in my pocket.
Summary: This phone is built to be tough which it is. Ive dropped it and knocked it around many times without it ever being affected. However it is rather slow. It constantly freezes and locks up. I frequently have to crash it to stop it and get it to move on. Also the 4G that this phones only carrier promotes so highly is nothing compared to other carrier networks. The internet is constantly slow and not able to stream video or audio without interruption.
