There are plenty of European sites that have that battery (EB-BG888BBE, part number GH43-04835A):

Though I guess if you are on AT&T you are in the US, not sure if they ship there. Maybe the part number can help finding a local source?

Anyone know where to get a new battery for the Fieldpro ? I can't find one on AT&T's site or anywhere else online. $1100. phone that came out a few years ago and can't get a replacement battery ? Makes no sense. Samsung has lost another customer

I have a FieldPro now, the version intended for Europe:
- latest OS is Android 10
- screen is AMOLED
- buttons can be remapped, e.g. with "Key Mapper" from F-Droid
- nice accessory set included: 2 batteries, dock, belt clip case, battery case, solid looking single-ear headset
- made in Korea

I am particularly pleased about the last point, as I am getting more concerned about the origins of my devices, and I prefer to buy things made in democracies.

From the few reviews I gather there is no built-in way of remapping the PTT buttons (side and top). On the regular XCover Pro (non-Field) I have used the app called "Buttons remapper" to alter the button operation in ways that Samsung does not support out-of-the-box. Does anyone know if this app also recognizes the FieldPro buttons?

To anyone who actually has one of these:
Is it still on Android 8, or has the vaguely announced upgrade emerged by now?
Also, any idea where this phone is made?

I work for a FIRE/EMS department and use this phone.
I'm gonna be straight, its not the most powerful phone. But holy hell can it take a beating without missing a beat. When I say armored. I don't mean toughened. I mean ARMORED.
It's been run over by a loaded striker stretcher with no ill effects. Its been thrown, sat, on stepped on, submerged in water and oh so much more.
Its got enough power for any daily work. Its got good battery life and you can hot swap batteries mid shift meaning you don't have to stop and charge your phone 12 hours into the shift.

Great phone for the job.

It took me a while after some research, but this is basically the new S7 Active successor with the same Exynos 9810 chipset and the 12MP Dual Aperture main camera from the S9 and S9+. It's just a shame that this phone is only limited to government agents and first responders. I would so love to own one despite lacking USB-C 3.1 with Samsung DeX support.

Anonymous, 30 May 2021This phone is absolute trash for the money. You can almost ... moreLol, this is an armoured rugged phone with a walkie-talkie push-to-talk functionality. Neither the S21 Ultra nor the iPhone 12 can do that! Also, there is absolutely no point for you to bash this phone since you can't even own one anyway. It's only limited to government agents and first aid responders.

Have had this phone for about a year - nothing but problems. Terrible reception and call quality compared to my previous phones. Went through 11 months of service tickets with AT&T, plus SIM card swaps, plus entire phone replacements with no improvements. AT&T wants to do nothing but continue to replace the phone with the same model - doesn't fix the issue. I'm done with this boat anchor and with AT&T.

1020 Euros for this specsheet ?
Are you kidding?
Many budget phones have good specsheet than this.

Anonymous, 07 Dec 2020Why wont they make a phone like this with android 10Maybe because android 10 doesen't support main cameras from the year 2010?

Is this just samsung saying "let's listen to people and go ALL IN on this one,but also troll them with main camera from a year 2010"???

Please don't post this comment I made before, I WAS WRONG, I based my opinon on pictures from a bad angle, my mistake. I apologise! DO NOT POST THIS, "There is a serious design flaw, the glass sits is higher that the bezels!
I have no idea what they were thinking about. But the designer should go home and they should hire someone who understands what rugged phone should mean."

Lost faith in Samsung so called rugged phones with the active line, 4 & 5 battery cover would pop off if dropped and battery would fly out, the 6,7 & 8 and previous where not waterproof even though they where IP68 rated and Samsung would not fix under warranty, also the 6 through 8 all developed screen lines and or burn in, even if never dropped or abused in any way, Samsungs answer, customer must have dropped phone, TOTAL BS. The Fieldpro seems good on paper but $1100. for a phone with outdated android and that may most likely have screen problems and not really be waterproof with no help from Samsung, NO WAY, Maby if it was $400. My main phone is now a Sonim XP8 and I love it, totally rugged and waterproof, plus a 3 year no questions asked warranty, if you break it they fix or replace it. I also have all the usa version Kyocera smartphones, they are also rugged and waterproof, even years later. Samsung are overpriced junk, DONT WASTE YOU TIME & MONEY
