CompactPhones5ever, 26 May 2019Samsung better not f*ck up by making it too large... I'm actuall... moreIt's going to be exactly the same as the xcover 4, just updated the ram and camera a bit, true innovation :)

Anonymous, 26 May 2019Well, my phone is 5" plus plastic back and it's still way smalle... moreDude, I'm sorry for being rude, but you're just being a bit dense at this point.

A) I said it would be compact on TODAY's standards. Look at how many phones were released recently with height of under 150mm. The answer is not many.
B) I said it would be compact compared to other rugged phones. Look at today's rugged phones and compare them to this. It's just smaller, no argumentation need here. Also, just because your phone is 5" and has plastic back doesn't mean it's rugged. I just pointed out that the mentioned LG phones definitely don't count for 'rugged' phones just because they have mil-spec rating.

Just admit that you mistook a big phone for a small one for having a small battery, no need to go deeper in denial.

Not only that the only real 'ruggedness' test of it is the drop test (which by the way is done on a plywood instead of concrete, so it means even more of nothing), each company can adjust the specifications of the test to their likings, so it's really... Well, nothing.

It's a simple equeation really: 6.1" + glass back = no ruggedness. Can't defy physics.

CompactPhones5ever, 26 May 2019It definitely is compact compared to other rugged smartphones...... moreIt isn't. It is way bigger than LG Q7 or G8 which have the same IP68 and MIL-STD-810.

Anonymous, 26 May 2019Dude it's bigger than S10, it's not compact in any meaningful way. It definitely is compact compared to other rugged smartphones... Even compared to normal phones, last Xcover had height of 146.2mm, which is only 4mm taller than e.g. Galaxy S10e.

I agree that it's still not as compact I'd personally like, but in world where manufacturers think 160mm tall phone is okay, we have to work with what we have.

Samsung better not f*ck up by making it too large... I'm actually excited about the 2,800 mAh battery because it kind of hints that it should be around the same size as last model, which would pretty decent on today's standards.

Also, one major question mark here - last Xcover model had BOTH (!!!!!) IP68 rating AND removable battery. Can Samsung deliver even this time around?

Xcover 4 was 146*73 mm, not exactly small.

Would be pretty slow, they should put 4gb ram and atleast 3200 mah battery in there

Man Xcover 4 had a price around 300 euros and specs of a 100 eur phone.
Wonder how much this will cost and how the specs will be.
