Samsung Galaxy S5690 Xcover preview: First look

03 September 2011
The Samsung S5690 Galaxy Xcover brings a touch of class and authority to a lineup of durable dumb phones for the outdoor enthusiasts. It’s arguable whether it can take as much bashing as its less sophisticated siblings, but this rugged smartphone is trying to combine the best of both worlds...

The advertizing pic of this phone its like the ads for 4x4 cars. But this 4x4 phone has a fuel tank for just half maybe more but no way for whole day. Its a shame... So shame.

But when used little (1 hour pr day for browsing/game, 5-6 calls) then it can last 3 days. On standby, a full week!

Doug, 23 Sep 2011My God, all you saying that the Defy/D+ is better than this... moreyes, we've seen the cheap part-DIES I WATER. Sorry, but defy costs ~400$ in Croatia. Galaxy ACE is expensive and its junk compared to defy. Two months before defy came in croatia galaxy 3 cost 390$. Samsung is not cheap, but their phones are cheap junk

  • Doug

My God, all you saying that the Defy/D+ is better than this... thats because (if you actually read the article) this Samsung will be aimed at the "lower end" of the rugged phones.
They're not trying to be better, just a cheaper alternative. Good day.

Sure, Defy/Defy+ looks better spec wise, yet I hope that Xcover will have half the price yet the same performance and endurance. One thing that I dont like about Xcover is its color scheme - that gray looks cheap and fugly, that thing looks unbelievably CHEAP. I hope Samsung will release all-black version, because back and sides of this phone look nice, front=UGLY!

defy better than xcover,superior screen res. and a much tolerable ui than samsung's touchwiz.

  • 20legend

Defy beats xcover,bigger display with much better screen res and a better ui(better than touchwiz,i believe)

Does this phone have DLNA support? Some spec sheets list it while others do not.
