I like it a LOT... once I got the battery issue resolved
25 March 2014
Summary: I got 2, one for me and one for my wife for about $150.00 from Consumer Cellular. Initially the battery life was pretty bad but would last for a day almost always. I found JuiceDefender and went with the Ultimate option,,, that's just the way I am when the cost is pretty low. Installing that and setting the options like I like made a WORLD of difference on battery life! I think it should be installed on all Rugby Smart phones and maybe ALL android pones!
Pros: Just about everything, especially the ruggedness
Cons: sometimes the outgoing audio doesn't work but that may be the carrier, not the pone
Summary: Awesome phone very durable. Purchased because my son and I both are hard on phones. This is my first actual android and the ease of use is amazing. Only drawback is the excess amount of apps preloaded on the phone that are not removable. Other than that amazing phone worth the $$$ .
All the latest smart phone features in a durable long-lasting design.

Summary: Great phone overall. A smart phone with all the latest features, but it has a rugged durable design so no worries about breaking it. The one button touch for the flashlight is really handy too. Excellent screen and camera quality. The only thing I really don't like is how slow the phone is. After you open 3 or 4 programs it really starts to slow down. But I bought it for the rugged durable long-lasting design so I can live with that. I highly recommend this phone.
Summary: Excellent phone. No problems with the phone. Very pleased with the capabilities the phone offers. Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a phone that will withstand the tests of time.
Summary: Finally a smart phone that is tough and durable. The Rugby Smart is a Mil Spec phone that uses Gorilla glass for the screen, which means that you can drop it without destroying it. It is also highly water resistant, the manufacturer states that it can survive 30 mins submerged in up to 1m of water. This is the smartphone that can survive "REAL" life. It has many good features that you will enjoy,it isn't as advanced as the Galaxy S3.
